"The Roach" is another short board that falls into our grovel board group. It's nose is pulled in more, but is a bit wider than your average grovel boards. It still keeps some rocker throughout, and can easily be ridden like a modern short board. The most common design is a single bump swallow. A normal thruster fin set-up is used and is usually 2" to 3" shorter than your go-to short board.
