Thruster Type
SmoothStar Thruster D

The Barracuda’s wheelbase is the smallest of all the complete SmoothStar adult models. It is the entry point of all the Thruster board series. The Barracuda is specifically designed for young surfers. It’s a super responsive, take it anywhere, mini board. The Barracuda is one of the most compact boards of the SmoothStar range, making it easy to carry and transport. If you have another SmoothStar Thruster, you can fit it easily to this deck.

The Transition for Groms
The 28″ Barracuda is smallest model for groms that utilise the full blown Thruster setup. It is suitable for groms that want to take the next step and progress their carving turns. It will be much more responsive than the Mini Grom series but they will require the necessary weight to ride it.

Thruster D Technology
The 28″ Barracuda model comes with the new SmoothStar Thruster D technology. The Thruster D is the latest in precision engineering that gives surfers the ultimate surf feeling with 15-12% more hold and drive through your surf turns. It’s also lighter and comes with a 5 year warranty – read more.

Ease of Use
We’ve taken all the necessary weight and size off the board to make it super easy and light for groms to travel. As one of their main forms of transport, it makes it easy for them to take it anywhere under the arm and to their friends place. It still provides the functional performance of teen and the adult ranges. As groms start to understand how their bodies control their SmoothStar/surfboards – it gives them full range of movement.

Found their webshop after looking for a rip curl bikini top that was sold out everywhere else in my size.
It was the last one in this size and had a tiny bit of damage where the label was so i got an email before they shipped it offering me a discount straight away!
Customer service was amazing too when i wanted to order a size up to compare and return the one.

Quick delivery and response over email!
So satisfied with my purchase
Most of my childhood holidays were spent at Ulladulla so visiting Southern Man was always a great thing to do. I now live on the Central Coast but love that I am still able to purchase quality items at a reasonable price that are always delivered quickly and in great condition!
Very fast service, a slight hiccup with the order but a friendly phone call from the shop and everything was sorted perfectly. Would definitely buy from them again.
Delivery in under 24 hours from when I placed my order! :)
