Banting returns to competition

After nearly 2 years out of the water Matt Banting returned to competition last weekend at the Vissla Great Lakes Pro.

"The Port Macquarie local launched and landed big aerials, executed precision snaps and carves to drop near-perfect scores" to walk away with 3rd place.

I have looked back at Matt’s files to see what we were making for him back in 2013. The boards had more volume in the rail as well as a 1/16” more thickness over all. We have put a bit of this back into into his GT and it seems to be working really well.

Matt rode his favourite model The GT throughout the event. Dimensions below.

5’11” x 18 3/4" x 2 5/16” 26.4 (Matt's go to board; he rides this size the most)
5’10.5” 18 3/4" x 2 5/16” 26.3 (semi groveler)
5’10" x 18 3/4" x 2 5/16” 26.2 (groveler)
5’9.5” x 18 13/16” x 2 5/16” 26.2 (full groveler)
