THE ROCKET SUP BOARD
R 18 950.00
The Rocket Stand-Up Paddle Board is a fast down the line mini Simmons inspired concept, BUT… with modern improvements. It is our most dynamic small wave performance board. The 2017 Rocket design has been updated. This includes a thinner nose, further reducing the pendulum action, flatter deck for more standing comfort, and better volume distribution, for improved flotation and stability.
We have received fantastic response from the 2016 range, and have decided to leave the bottom contour unchanged. Although we've worked hard re-thinking the design, all credit goes to the progress of those in the past. We've gone with a close quad fin configuration, to create a water “slot” for bite, and to increase manoeuvrability. The rounded diamond nose shape is more style than function, though it helps with a 360 manoeuvre. The diamond tail is more dynamic over such a wide board, and gives two release edges, improving speed and turning performance. There is a deep single concave in the centre, fading to a double concave through to the tail, with a sharp central channel, for more grip. This works in combination with the tight quad set up. The Rocket is a thick board with a flatter deck and rounder rails to keep up the high volume required for stand up paddle boarding. It is made more manoeuvrable by being much shorter, with flattish outline curves, offering more speed. We have however sharpened rails in the last third, to help turning, by being able to sink the rail. Minimal overall rocker allows for good plaining speed, yet enough rocker to still turn tightly in the bowl.
