Retail Price €1,900 / $2,100
|Board Type||SUP Surf|
The Spitfire’s ground breaking design incorporated the combination of speed, maneuverability and firepower. This made it a formidable fighter plane and a much loved British icon with its beautiful lines.
SMIK has adopted the name Spitfire, as these boards carry the same attributes. Beautiful lines that create powerful, tight turns that contain and project speed.
The Spitfire has evolved with some subtle changes that have made a considerable difference. Part from the new graphic look, the latest of these being the addition of a belly channel releasing out the tail which ultimately adds a little bit of release, or fizz to the back end of a cut back.
The hip in the outline is in between the feet, and the nose is pulled in just right, to make the board as agile as possible without compromising stability.
The rocker, a smooth continuous curve, combined with a single concave to double ending with a V in the tail and moderately fine rails results in a fast, driven high-performance ride.
Construction / Technology
Using the same full PVC sandwich construction method as SMIK’s production lay-up, the Custom Carbon PVC Performance is SMIK’s lightest, strongest technology.
The only difference with the standard production lay-up lies in the more extensive use of biaxial carbon, with a full carbon deck to inject energy and reflex into the board.
On the scales, the result is on average 800 grams to 1 kg lighter depending on the size of the board, with phenomenal impact strength and liveliness.
