The Donkey takes it’s place in Dion’s Atkinson’s board rack as the perfect small wave, high-performance machine. The Donkey presents itself as your go-to high-performance board for average day-to-day conditions.

With a single concave, boxy rails and an average-to-full rocker, The Donkey is fast, precise and built for critical surfing.

These characteristics, however, are combined in a plan shape that is slightly more forgiving and compressed in length, with width added in just the right places to ensure that your high-performance goals are not encumbered by average waves.

The Donkey is the board that will perform when the conditions don’t allow your good wave performance board to… instead it will generate speed and power for you.

It’s a great, high-performance option for the surfer looking to fit more volume into a shorter rail board, and as a bonus it’s a proven small-wave competition machine, evidenced by Donny’s victory in the 2016 Australian Open of Surfing riding this board.

The Donkey will provide you with all of the high-performance characteristics of our best good wave performance models built into a board for sub-par conditions. Order your Donkey in our Tri-Flex Technology and really feel the fire!
