“Back to the Future?
A classic outline and
a modern feeling.”
“The design concept of this board is taken from recent developments in surfboard design with the widepoint pushed forward along with a bit of extra width and the tail kept pulled in with a moderate width through stance. The result is a stable, early planing, easygoing board that is still very loose off the tail. More backfoot friendly than the Wave I, the extra mid-section curve will still give full rail turns when needed” – Jonah Lepak
HIGH PERFORMANCE THRUSTER WAVEBOARD

> Onshore wave: 9
> Bump & Jump: 8
> Feel: Modern/easygoing – Back footed
> Skill Level: Intermediate+ wavesailor to pro
RANGE OF USE
> Wave Type : Good down-the-line waves from shoulder high to over mast-high
> Early Planing : Very good
> Float and ride : Excellent for float and ride conditions, volume distribution allows relaxed slogging and the extra width plus flatter deck gives good stability.
> Best Maneuvers : Full rail turns in and around the pocket, it also has the ability to change curves and turn high or low on the wave
pulled-in nose leads to a clean, even curve with the widepoint pulled a bit forward and ending in a classic rounded pintail. Overall slightly wider, but the width is kept moderate to narrow through the stance and tail to maintain sensitivity.
Very soft tucked rails in the nose area with a release edge starting forward of the front strap and remaining tucked to the back strap.
Moderate wave-rocker with continuous curve through the stance and the tail. Flat from the nose into a double concave under the mast base transitioning through to stance to panel vee out the tail. The double concave promotes early planing and a softer ride while the vee adds grip and sensitivity off the tail.
Flattened deck with thickness flow biased forward to keep a balanced forward stance in sub-planing conditions.
Thruster setup with larger center and sidebites. This board works well with larger fins compared to the Wave I.
