All Around Noseride Performance.
This design is a collaboration between Kevin Skvarna with Steve and Dave Boehne. Blending classic templates from Steve's archive and modernizing the finer details like foil, rocker, and outline to Kevin's specific needs.
This board is an all around single fin that blends Kevins approach to surfing. Endless nose rides and aggressive turns off the tail. Point break or beach break and everywhere in between this is Kevin's favorite board which you will find him on most of the time.

"The main thought behind the Skvarna Diamond is versatility. I wanted to have a board in my collection that would work in all conditions (from point breaks to beach breaks). The wide diamond tail noserides likes a squaretail but functions off the tail like a pintail. Soft foiled rails allow for smooth transitions rail to rail. The influence here is Australian style wide point back longbaords that have been a prominent design aspect since the the 60s. This allows for the type of surfing that I enjoy most which is being powerful from the turning portion of the board while also being able to noseride deep in the pocket. The performance with this design is in its league of its own. It does everything I want it to and then some. I can feel comfortable packing this board in my bag and taking it anywhere in the world knowing it does the best blend of longboarding that I can find. - Kevin Skvarna
