SURF LIKE A PRO. HIT LIPS, THROW BUCKETS
Performance shapes for serious riders seeking world-class waves. For intermediate to high-skilled riders up to 115kg. For larger clean hollow conditions, beach breaks down to smaller waves.
021 Pro model has all new sizes and a new design! ...
Pro-performance - shorter lengths, more stability, faster speeds and more control.
Short outline helps to fit in tighter pockets of the wave and is more manoeuvrable without the nose catching through the turns.
New outline, bottom shape, thinner rails, tail shape and size range.
- All new sizes scaled up from the 6'8" Pro model designed and tested by our 2 ISA World Champion surfers Benoit Carpentier and Zane Schweitzer.
- Short outline makes it easier and faster to turn the board with more reactivity and less swing weight.
- Thinner rails offer more responsiveness, more control to generate speed and more bite through turns.
- Sharper rail edge at the tail gives more drive and release through turns.
- Swallow tail provides faster speed and sharper turns in smaller pockets of the wave.
- Fins are positioned closer to the rails for quick and sharp response when turning. Both thruster and quad options available.
9'0" x 30" - The 9'0" is the biggest board in the range and the first pro design to go as wide as 30", designed for riders that want extra stability and float.
The length works as a gun style board in bigger surf, generating faster down-the-line speed. The narrow nose outline means that swing weight is minimal, making the 9'0" react and respond to every manoeuvre on point. The extra float and stability makes the 9'0" a safe option for those that want to save energy when conditions get choppy and makes surf sessions last longer.
Don't be fooled though, the performance on the 9'0" delivers the same excitement and flare as the smallest size in the range. The 9'0" replaces the 8'10"x29" Pro XL, with 157L it is the true big boys ripper for riders up to 120kg.
8'7" x 29.5"- The 8'7" doesn't feel like the second biggest board in the range, in fact far from it. Yes it has 135L to float a rider up to 110kg, but the performance is unmatched for a board of its size.
The 8'7" rips and has a distinct smoothness in its ride. The thin rails engage with ease, giving the rider the trust in pushing more radical and powerful manoeuvres. The shorter outline makes it turn that much tighter and earlier than those used to the 8'10"x29" predecessor.
8'0" x 29" - The 8'0" packs a surprising amount of volume for its size, making it a very viable option for riders that might normally be intimidated by going so short. The slightly domed deck holds the float and stability, thinning out at the rails to allow for the responsive foot pressure when turning without making the board feel corky.
The 8'0" replaces the 8'3"x29" Pro and is more stable, easier to turn and fits in tighter pockets of the wave thanks to the shorter length.
7'7" x 28" - The 7'7" x28" replaces both the 7'10"x28" x29", and yet despite being shorter, it actually has 5 litres more float for riders up to 85kg. The 7'10" was the first size to be scaled up from the 6'8" and it was immediately a clear winner!
The thin and sharp rails provide so much speed down the line that makes it easy to set up for explosive manoeuvres. The fin positioning closer to the rails delivers more bite and drive through turns. The rocker makes it easy to paddle into waves, with enough nose kick to make the drops precisely. In summary. shorter length makes it easier to turn, thinner rails react faster and with more control.
7'2" x 26.75" - The 7'2" replaces 2 sizes; the 7'7"x26.75" and 7'2"x25.5", sitting in between at 87L, it is suited for riders up to 80kg. Copying the length of the previous 7'2" and with the width of the 7'7", it makes it possible to rip like the best with a little extra comfort in stability.
The rail thickness is ultra thin to enable long and sharp carving turns. The short outline makes it fit in the tightest pockets and reduces the nose from catching during the most critical manoeuvres.
6'8" x 24" - The 6'8" was designed and tested by ISA World SUP Surf Champion's Benoit Carpentier and Zane Kekoa Schweitzer. Designed to win, the 6'8" carved the way for the new Pro range.
All other sizes are exactly scaled versions of this board, so any rider using a new 021 Pro can trust they share the same design and performance from the highest performing athletes in the world.
The short outline is easier to whip around with less chance of the nose catching through turns. The board initially was tested with a removable tail piece, allowing the riders to swap between a squash tail and a swallow tail. The response to the swallow tail was instant, generating so much more speed and more bite to turn in tighter pockets of the wave.
The Pro range comes in two constructions -
