The 2023 shapes remain largely the same for this hugely successful design, however, we have made a small change to the tail by pulling in the rail to give the performance SUP board a more curvaceous outline further improving turning performance extending the boards range in bigger waves .
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 diamond nose shape is more style than function, though it helps with a 360 manoeuvre.
The flat 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 center, 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 performance SUP board with a flatter deck and rounder rails to keep up the high volume required for stand-up paddle boarding. It is made more maneuverable 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.
These are multiple reasons why The Rocket is the top selling performance SUP board.
