Drag

Hawaiian gifts

The effect that leads to water flow to be slowed down or interrupted as it moves along a surfboard's surfaces. Reasons for drag are generally present in the leading edges of a surfboard or the forward rail line, the forward rocker and outline, the foremost edges of fins, and in bottom features which cause water resistance such as tail vee. Managed drag is a necessary condition of surfboard style and design.
