The Moon Tail

The Moon Tail is the step up of choice in the Christian Fletcher surfboards range, this board has quite a straight outline and very low rails which make it an amazing machine for locking into a line in some solid waves and making out alive.  You can still disengage the tail and throw some fins but this board definitely does like a little more juice. Make that tricky section today with the Moon Tail.

Christian Fletcher 

Christian Fletcher was born in Hawaii but grew up in San Clemente. He began surfing competitively at 5. He placed second in the 1982 U.S. Championships and third in the 1985 National Scholastic Surfing Association Juniors. In 1989 he appeared on the cover of Surfer magazine. Fletcher placed second in the 1982 U.S. Championships and finished the 1985 NSSA Open Season ranked third in Juniors. The same year, at age 14, he turned pro.

Even at that early age, he was bored by much of the surfing going on around him. "I just grew up skateboarding," he recalls, "and it seemed like, you know, I was doing airs on my skateboard and it just seemed natural to do on the surfboard, too. And I just couldn't stand doing what everybody else was doing." He tried his luck in selected events on the ASP world tour for several years, but failed miserably.

If contests could not provide an avenue for his progressive approach, surf videos could. He was insisting that the next frontier for surfing was in the air. Christian Fletcher is the founding father of aerial surfing. 


Morphlex is Sunova's premium performance construction. Developed over the last 5 years, from the persistent pursuit of perfect performance. It is the primary construction for all surfboards under 8’ by Sunova.

Morphlex is designed to have more spring and return in shorter boards than its Balsa Flex predecessor, giving you a positive “more flexible” flex pattern as the board is loaded and unloaded through sections. “Morphing” and bending right into the pocket and rebounding predictably these boards fly out of sections with so much speed and life. A lightweight EPS core is coupled with a ½” parabolic balsa/composite rail that is then sandwiched between balsa skins top and bottom offering a product with unmatched spring and return. 

The bottom is a 1.5mm balsa/fiberglass sandwich that is not completely rigid. This softer area on the bottom cushions the ride of the board, making it amazingly unaffected by chatter, giving you a smooth ride even when conditions are bumpy and average. The deck is a 2mm balsa/fiberglass sandwich with highlighted mini I beams that connect the glass under the wood, with the glass over. This creates a very rigid strong sandwich structure that is incredibly resistant to compressions, creating a strong and responsive feeling underfoot. 

Finished off with solid balsa/composite nose and tail blocks for additional resistance to dings, these boards look even better than they perform. Fitted with a self-regulating air vent that utilizes a slightly permeable Goretex membrane encased in a special aluminum vent designed and engineered by TBF, Morphlex boards are functional and forward-thinking.
