PERFORMANCE SHAPES FOR SERIOUS RIDERS SEEKING WORLD-CLASS WAVES
The new shorter outline makes it possible to ride a smaller board with more reactivity. Thinner rails give more control & response to generate more speed. Channeled tail gives bite and drives out of turns. All sizes feature diamond grooved traction pads with tail kick pad with raised center ridge.
SHORTER NOSE OUTLINE
– Feels more compact and maneuverable to pivot without the nose catching through the turns.
– Feels more stable despite being shorter due to less curve to rock from nose to tail.
“The new shorter nose shape made a night and day difference in the added performance.” Sean Poynter
THINNER AND SHARPER RAILS
– For extra control and quick turning on rail.
– Requires less foot pressure to maneuver.
– Lower volume rails sit lower in the water adding stability.
to avoid catching white wash and improved control.
PULLED IN TAIL OUTLINE
helps fit in the pocket of the wave for late take-offs and provides faster response in turning.
FLAT STANDING AREA
helps hold a wider stance for extra stability in choppy water.
CONSTANT ROCKER CURVE
– For a combination of speed and maneuverability.
– Curved nose rocker allows to drop into steep waves without the nose diving.
– Curved tail kick offers fast reactive turning and projection to go vertical.
provides lift, drive and control at high speed.
NEW CHANNELED TAIL
– Provides speed, grip and drive for high powered maneuvers.
– Channels are positioned precisely close to the fins for maximum control & drive.
FIN SET UP
– Quad and thruster set up options available to suit different riding styles and conditions.
– Fins are positioned close to the rails for quick and sharp response when turning.
– V shape bottom between fins gives sensitive rail-to-rail transitions.
2 PREMIUM CONSTRUCTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM
BLUE CARBON TECHNOLOGY
– Lightest weight, Best response, Strongest build
– High-density End Grain Balsa covers the full bottom for incredible impact resistance and fatigue strength.
– Natural uni-directional flax wraps the full rails stiffens the board and avoids total breakage.
– Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.
– Scratch proof Parabolic Carbon Innegra rail.
– A combination of different fiberglass densities wrap the entire hull for strength and durability.
– Australian pine on standing area for extra impact resistant and rigidity.
7’0″ X 24″ PRO
“The immediate difference I felt on the 7’0” was an increase in stability. On my first wave I felt speed similar to what the Hyper Nut generates off the bottom, while the top turn felt much more fluid with speed and power over my previous 7’2”.
The 2018 7’2” was the board I rode to win the World Championship in 2016, so it’s a huge progression that 019 is that much ahead in performance. I’m stoked to compete on it for the upcoming season.” Zane Kekoa Schweitzer
7’3″ X 26″ PRO
“I’ve spent a lot of time & energy testing the new 019 Pro ranges. The new 7’3” has an easier balance on the water with a controlled rock back and forth, is closer to the water and more consistent in terms of stability. I really like how the new model during top turns has an exciting release and pivot in the lip with faster redirections. Another big difference is during backside bottom turns where the board drives so hard and propels me into the lip, allowing me to have a great top turn. The roundhouse of the new 7’3” felt really controlled & smooth. On the re-entry it has a slight release in the tail, which makes it fun. The new thinner rails definitely help engage speed without hang-ups driving down the face and redirecting up the wave.” Sean Poynter
7’5″ X 26.75″ PRO
“Compared to the previous generation of Pro boards, it generates more speed on the wave, has more grip and drive in the bottom turns and allows for better projection on the wave face. All in all it delivers the most lively and precise feeling experienced on a SUP wave board.”
“The new 7’5” generates more speed on the wave, more grip and drive in the bottom turns. All this without loosing lateral and longitudinal stability while paddling: it felt as stable despite being shorter.” Franz Orsi
7’5″ X 26.75″ PRO
“The 7’5” became one of my favorite boards, as it has a really exciting ride from the release & quickness of turns. The new shorter nose shape made a night and day difference in the added performance. It made me think I was riding a completely different board! I was ripping the shorter nose outline as it makes the board feel smaller and clearly more maneuverable without getting caught up on the nose.” Sean Poynter
7’10″ X 29″
“The 7’10” has more grip and bite through turns and allowed me to push stronger off the bottom to set up for my top turns. Stability also felt better and absorbed the wind chop for a more controlled glide.
The 019 Pro range makes it possible to ride shorter boards that are precise and more responsive. Speed down the line is faster, with a greater control and hold from the thinner rails.” Ollie O’Reilly
8’10″ X 29″ PRO
“The new 8’10” was much better in performance over the previous 9’0” model. The board was loose if you wanted it to be through turns, yet so easy to push off the bottom with speed and power.
I had so much more fun and excitement generated from the channeled tail & lower volume rails. We surfed until sunset with grinning smiles, it was an easy and obvious winner!” Ollie O’Reilly
8’10″ X 29″ PRO XL
“The XL with the added volume from the thickness in the standing area makes for an ultra stable but high performance wave board. The board catches waves easily and is reactive when linking top to bottom turns. At 90+ kg this board lets me save energy from the added volume so I can spend longer out in the waves!” Agung Surya Putra
8’3″ X 29″ PRO
“A major transformation in design and concept has the new Pro boards looking like an altogether deferent beast. What struck me first was that the board accelerated much quicker on the drop allowing the board to release from the water sooner. This simply allows the rider to starting initiating the turn much sooner and starting to setup for the next move. The earlier speed is then controlled through the top turn with the channel bottom providing more grip so that power can be pushed through the tail. Even though the board is a touch shorter and has lost a couple of litres it feels similar in stability to previous versions.” Marco Gribi
