In the center of the ZRAY X2 board is a soft, fabric handle that provides comfort and a secure grip for the user.

Underneath the board is a central fin for tracking and mobility while on the water. While other boards may boast three fins, this single fin design does it’s job of tracking the board. It is a removable fin. It takes a little effort to secure it properly and lock it in, but once in the correct position it is firm and stable.
