THE Rocket

Full Carbon PVC Sandwich construction

This is our best selling board for those who want stability, ease of catching waves and be the fastest on the water. The Rocket is all about the “FUN Factor”. We have received “rave reviews” from all the new Rocket owners, so why change a good thing?

R24 900

The 2020 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 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 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 paddleboarding. 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.
