Cruise up to your favorite playspot and you'll realize what the Astro 54's subtle release edges and cleverly flared sidewalls are designed for.

.. straight-up sickness! Steve Fisher's exacting specs insured that the flat hull and step rocker profile of the Astor 54 were matched with just the right amount of volume. Big water buseater or low water Hurley, the Astro is designed to snap, crackle, pop.

High CFS weight range: 120-170 lbs / 54-77 kg.
Low CFS weight range: 170-210 lbs / 77-95 kg.
Spark Thighbrace.
