|Board Type||SUP Surf, All Round|
MORE PERFORMANCE, MORE STABILITY, MORE WAVES
The wave-ripper for real-world riders. This surf paddle board is Floaty, fun, and the king of catching waves. You’ll make any kind of mush highly surf-able with this shape.
-NEW SHORTER NOSE OUTLINE
Makes it easier to pivot turn & fit in the critical section of the wave without catching the nose.
-NEW THINNER RAILS
Increases the responsiveness and ease to engage rail-to-rail turns with less effort.
In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.
-FLAT STANDING AREA
Allows to have wider stance for extra stability in chop.
Prevents the nose from diving when getting into waves and paddling in choppy water.
-MODERATE TAIL KICK
Allows for tighter turning when standing back on the tail.
-WIDE ROUNDED TAIL
Improves stability when stepping on the board to turn. It also gives release out of turns.
-MONO TO DOUBLE CONCAVE TO CHANNEL TAIL
Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the mid point. The channel tail makes it easy to carry speed and hold through maneuvers.
-NEW CHANNEL TAIL
Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.
-NEW SIDE FIN BOXES
Are positioned closer to the rail for quicker response in turns. Minimal change yet a big improvement.
-FIN SET UP
Thruster fin set up provides comfortable straight line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf.
(Pocket Rocket allows both thruster and quad set up. Quad fin set up uses 4 side fins and gives fast acceleration and instant down the line speed as it does not have drag from the larger centre fin.)
AS STRONG AS POSSIBLE
– Impact resistant high-density EVA wrapping the whole rail from nose to tail.
– Multiple layers of high-grade fiberglass are wetted out in epoxy resin wrapping the hull.
– Australian pine on standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity.
