Nathan Fletcher’s latest collaboration with Stretch is an ultra small, high performance board. It’s tough to categorize as it can be used as a daily driver in all around surf.

It can punt huge airs. It’s small enough to fit into the tightest places yet can still handle the big drops. It’s unique design features a short yet full outline to accommodate both a tri and a quad set up so you can experiment with different feels all with one little board!

The THING features a base outline similar to a miniature Fletcher Four-fin or Ratskate model with a normal looking nose and full tail. Dimensions are pushed out in width while reducing the length to add voluptuous curves for quickness in small pockets and round waves. This added curve allows Stretch to bring in the tail block similar to a Ratskate model and push the fin cluster back so it can be railed hard off the tail despite it’s small size.

Similar to all of Stretch’s high performance boards, the THING features continuous rocker for predictability and a broadened “sweet spot”.

Symmetrical, round 50/50 rails with a hard edge in the tail.

Vee in the nose transitions to a single concave between the feet with a slight vee out the tail.

Available in Stretch’s exclusive EPS TECH, greenOne® or polyester.
