Why F2 Barracuda is a different quad board?

At first glance, it is notable for its short length (between 221 and 223 cm depending on the volume), but what really makes it a very special quad is how fast it goes into  early planning. The problem that most quads have is that to get more grip they have to sacrifice top speed and early planning. In contrast, the F2 barracuda has managed to combine a good grip on the wave with an excellent early planning. It has been designed for European conditions, making it the perfect board for waveriding the kind of waves we have. Also it is notable for how quick it turns and for achieving the speed it at the bottom turns.The rider Kenneth Danielsen (D38) speaks about this fantastic board on the following video.
