The Santa Ana replicates the shape of its brother, the Enforcer, with a good- sized shovel in the tip and camber underfoot that gradually gives way to subtle rocker at the ends. But where the Enforcer is built with metal and a heavier wood core, the Santa Ana subs in carbon and a lightweight balsa core that is both forgiving and easier to steer, without sacrificing too much oomph. “So fun, playful, light but super damp—the balsa core helps maintain that balance—and well-shaped for big, smooth turns,” says one-piece-wearing Abigail Barronian.
