This classic semi-performance 9-foot noserider is Grain Surfboards' most popular board to date. Everyone needs one of these boards in their quiver. The Root features a moderate rocker, slight hollow in the nose and softer rails throughout. Perfect for those mushy knee to head high beach breaks. Smooth and fast.
