The Ride:

The 404 V3 is a very well designed race board that can handle all types of conditions. It is constructed from Carbon Fiber or PVC and comes in both 12’6” and 14’. The board has a distinctive shape that starts with the bow. It has a slight rocker in the nose with plenty of volume and with a sharp edge the bow can cut into the waves. The rocker then opens up to a single concave that allows the board to accelerate in all conditions. The V3 displays a thick rail which allows the board to be stable in choppy windy conditions.


The 404 uses a FCS handle with a built in vent plug that is easy for your hand to fit in. The deck foam is also from FCS which is constructed to be light weight and doesn’t retain water. Danny Ching and the 404 crew did an excellent job creating such a fun and fast board.
