Walden Surfboards

Enigma

Take a shortboard outline and pump up the volume without losing any of our signature “Magic” feel or performance and you have the Enigma. The Enigma is short, fat and fast with a step deck and the original wing tail first developed by Steve Walden in 1972. The step deck allows for a thinner rail for responsiveness while maintaining volume for floatation. The wing fin creates a shorter rail line and a narrower pivot point in the tail for a more maneuverable ride. Designed for the better surfer in smaller surf where increased looseness wont compromise control. The fuller nose combined with our patented “Magic” bottom ( a deep single-to-double concave with beveled edges and sharp rails), is perfect for glide-and-trim styling while remaining aggressive when driven hard off of the back foot. The Enigma also features a 4+1 fin box for ultimate fin selection. 

This board is recommended for: A better surfer who wants to go shorter, in small to medium surf.
