The Bruja shape has evolved over the past few years. Initially it was a performance surf shape but has changed to a more all around or hybrid shaped board that is great for flatwater paddling and can handle surf. The rounded pin tail and slight performance shape (pointed nose) enable better maneuverability when surfing and at higher speeds. The Bruja comes in several sizes to accommodate different riders as well as intended use.
The name Bruja was inspired by Roca Bruja (Witch’s Rock) a popular surfing destination in Costa Rica which is usually accessed by boat or a hard trek through the jungle of the Santa Rosa National Park.
The Bruja has an EPS foam core, 3 layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin, wood veneers on the deck and bottom for added strength and appeal, a carbon fiber reinforced deck in the standing area of the board and a layer of Kevlar around the rails from nose to tail. The carbon fiber deck reinforcement helps to reduce pressure dings from heels, knees, etc. that can form over time. The Kevlar rails add an extra layer of strength on the rails where most impacts occur. It comes with 3 removable fins, plenty of bungee tie downs for your gear, a deep center hand grip for an easy grab and carry, maintenance free vent plug and a camera mount on the nose to catch the action.
Price and availability vary by size. Pricing increases $25 every 6 inches in length.
