Model T Tuflite

This design is the most well-rounded and versatile of Donald’s retro line. The Model T comes with a classic single fin set up and is best compared to the In The Pink, also created by Takayama. Where the ITP features some key pro design elements, the Model T preserves classic logging influences. As a result, the Model T really comes into its own when the conditions turn out crappy. The Takayama Model T is going to “generate rides from nothing“, meaning its shape works really well in smaller (and unexpected) conditions. This means more rides, more cross-stepping, and more style for you.

What conditions is it for?

This is the one board that every single one of Donald’s team riders has in their competitive quiver. With its 50/50 rails, single fin, and square tail, it makes an ideal addition to your quiver as well. Consider the Model T well-suited for shoulder-high waves, right down to ankle small. It is going to be perfect for that smooth riding experience. Donald refined this versatile log shape over the course of many years, and his Model T is a classic shape.
