THE WIDE RIDE WITH REAL GLIDE
THIN RAILS ON WIDE BOARDS
You will sense the trademark thin rails biting into the wave just like a smaller board and let you maneuver off the top and in bottom turns in ways not expected.The thin rails mean you need less effort to turn on the rail, as there is less volume holding the board back from sinking into the turn.
SHORT NOSE OUTLINE
Makes it easier to pivot turn and fit in the critical section of the wave without catching the nose.
Prevents the nose from diving when getting into waves and paddling in choppy water.
In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.
FLAT STANDING AREA
Allows to have a wider stance for extra stability in chop.
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 BOTTOM
Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the midpoint.
Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.
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 a drag from the larger centre fin.
NEW SELF-VENTILATING VALVE
A self-ventilating air valve is available on the board. This valve is self-ventilating so, it should not be touched or removed – otherwise, you are at risk of damaging the valve system.
