A strong scoop starting from the center and increasing towards the nose. This helps to avoid nose dives in steep waves and allows for aggressive front foot riding, while the rocker towards the tail is very modest, providing easy planing and good top speed.
The magic combination is the fast rocker with the narrow outline. Aggressive turns with a super adaptable radius in any situation. The modest tail kick gives great planing power and speed for such a narrow board. A perfect combination.
SWALLOW TAIL SHAPE
The swallow tail shape is featured on all sizes. Compared to a rounded or pin tail it makes the board more compact and allows for tight turns. It keeps the board more connected to the wave and improves the grip so you can push your carving game to the next level.
Super thin rails in the tail section with a smooth transition to the center make for effortless turning and plenty of grip.
MONO TO DOUBLE CONCAVE
A classic mono concave nose feeds into an innovative double concave in mono concave mid section, before blending smoothly into a solidly vee’d mild double concave tail.
With a narrower outline, extra volume is added around the centerline, improving consistency and confidence in marginal conditions. Get planing sooner and maintain momentum and flow in critical situations.
STARBOX: LESS WEIGHT, FASTER SET UP
Featuring two lightweight Starboxes and one US-Box reduces critical swing weight from the tail. More reactivity.
The Starbox system allows you to fit Slot Box fins within five seconds each, while retaining your last settings. Get back on the water faster. It is also compatible with US box fins.
LOCKED AND COMFORTABLE STANCE
The Drake footstraps are made from Yulex foam with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel. Under your feet the 10mm thick footpads with a diamond grooving pattern provide essential grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.
The rear pad is equipped with a kicker ramp, which allows better lock in the rear strap by twisting the foot when needed.
A PURE THRUSTER
The Vee in the tail is a bottom shape, which is designed to work perfectly with the Thruster fin set-up. If you’re looking for a Quad set-up, you’ll find it on the HYPER, paired with a mono-concave in the tail section.
