For a long time this was the most high performance model in the lineup. Some of the main characteristics of the Flash is the pulled in outline of the nose and tail, also the aggressive beveled rails on the bottom which all contribute to less swing weight, in turn equals to more responsiveness on the turns. The beveled rails also help with less catching of the rails when putting the board on rail. The Flash also has a single concave up on the nose that gives the board quicker lift on take offs and also helps with keeping the nose up on touch downs. The Flash can also be ridden a little wider if desired and not feel the width when up on foil because of the aggressive beveled rails.
