Root

Aptly named to represent where Grain began, the Root continues to be one of our most popular boards. This classic design is perfect for knee-to-head-high beach breaks because of its moderate rocker, down rails throughout and a slightly hollow nose. We’ve come far, but the Root is still a dominant classic.

 

Name origin:
Pretty simple origin, yet somehow today feels a bit prescient.  As one of our earliest designs - though it's been through a series of refinements - we couldn't have known that Grain would be looking back to The Root with such fond nostalgia.
