SURF LIKE A PRO



🏆 Benoit Carpentier wins 2022 APP Championship on the 7’0″ PRO

 

🏆 2 year of winning the best performance surf shape awarded by SUPBoarder Magazine, the PRO is now upgraded to the next level.

The completely new design gives more speed to set up and complete maneuvers, more hold through bottom turns in bigger surf and greater response.

New rocker is more forgiving on steeper drops, flatter deck feels less corky and new fin positions refine the control and drive through turns.

Thinner nose profile reduces swing weight for more radical snaps, thinner tail gives more bite and response through turns.

NEW 7’2″ x 23.5″ / 74 L







10 X CLIMATE POSITIVE

PERFORMANCE SHAPES FOR SERIOUS RIDERS SEEKING WORLD-CLASS WAVES.

“Super stoked about the new Pro range, I feel like we finally found the perfect high-performance shape, no more hesitation going for a big bottom turn, everything seems possible. That’s the result of many years of research and I’m loving it!” ~ Benoit Carpentier, Multiple Times SUP Surf World Champion


 

THINNER RAIL PROFILE

Reduces swing weight from nose, increasing pivot speed through turns.


 

LONGER NARROWER NOSE OUTLINE

Extends the rail line, making it easier to paddle into waves and holding on steeper drops.


 

BOTTOM SHAPE

Single concave provides lift and speed, feeding through to a double midsection and slight vee at the tail to manoeuvre and rock from rail to rail.


 

FLATTER TAIL ROCKER

Rocker provides faster speed down the line and into turns.


 

RAILS

Are kept fine with a more pinched and rolled tuck edge, giving bite, control and speed through maneuvers


 

THINNER RAILS

At the tail gives more bite and control.


 

FLATTER DECK SHAPE

Offers more comfort and feels less corky.


 

SQUASH TAIL

Give the most versatile performance in all wave types, particularly holding in bigger surf.


 

5 FIN OPTION

The 5 fin option allows for quad, thruster and twin fin with small centre nubster. You can choose your preferred fin set up based on riding style and wave conditions.


 

SUPPLY WITH FINS

All models are supplied with a thruster set up with 4.7 front 120/140 center on bigger sizes. The angles of the fins are updated, with more spray in the front fins for greater manoeuvrability with less angle in the rear for greater drive through turns.

Blue Carbon Sandwich comes with Prepreg Carbon fins.
Limited Series comes with Armacore fins.


 

PREPREG CARBON SURF FIN

BLUE CARBON

THE BEST VALUE FULL CARBON CONSTRUCTION WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED

• Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.

• 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.

• Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.

LIMITED SERIES

TIMELESS LOOK, SOLID PERFORMANCE

• Twin T-stringers made from glass fibre are positioned on the deck and bottom of the board close to the rail, providing a massive increase in the overall strength against total breakage in surf.

• An additional wide layer of 200g glass wraps the rails for higher strength against paddle impact and further reinforces the overall strength against buckling.

• The deck features reinforced biaxial glass and Australian pine, to resist heel dents and impact from the standing area.

• The nose and tail are wrapped in multiple layers of glass fiber for further strength on these impact zones.

Available constructions:

• Blue Carbon

9’0″ x 30″ / 144 L

Length: 9’0” / 274 cm

Width: 30” / 76 cm

Remains a favourite for heavier riders up to 120 kg. The new outline is faster generating speed and easier to rotate through turns as it has reduced swing weight. A great option if you want max stability with pro surfing performance.

8’7″ x 29.5″ / 130 L

Length: 8’7″ / 262 cm

Width: 29.5″ / 75 cm

Slightly flatter tail rocker and pulled in nose translates into a faster down the line speed.

Available construction:

• Blue Carbon Sandwich

Length: 8’2” / 249 cm

Width: 29” / 74 cm

The 8’2″ replaces the previous 8’0″, extending the length to catch waves that bit earlier and to hold its line in steeper drops. The 8’2″ at 118 L will be highly popular for riders up to 95kg. The new fin position gives you the needed bite and manoeuvrability, coupled with drive through turns!

Available constructions:

Length: 7’10” / 239 cm

Width: 28” / 71 cm

Available constructions:

• Blue Carbon Sandwich

• Limited Series

7’5″ x 26.75″ / 92L

Length: 7’5″ / 226 cm

Width: 26.75″ / 68 cm

Feeling like a surfboard, the 7’5″ was a hit among testers for its ability to float riders up to 80kg, yet turn heads in performance! The narrow nose wants to whip through turns and allows you to sit deep in the pocket of waves. The higher nose rocker feels more forgiving, while the thin rails nose and tail feel ultra-responsive to foot pressure.

The new 7’0″ shape feels amazing, really reactive and definitely more high performance”-Benoit Carpentier.

6’10″ x 24″ / 61L
