WEDGE

THE NEW EDGE

The Wedge range features a lineup of paddleboards that are all 32’’ wide to provide float and stability for heavier riders to rip, offering that pro performance and feel without compromising stability or volume. This is a versatile range for big to small conditions, best suited for beginner and intermediate riders.

 

KEY FEATURES - 

> Narrow nose outline - The narrow nose outline helps you generate speed, limits the nose from catching through turns and fits in tighter pockets in the wave.

> Low nose rocker - Helps get into waves easily and early.

> Thin rail profile - Thinner rails on the 8’7” and 9’2” gives the Wedge its pro level performance with faster surfing speeds, better grip, and turning capabilities. The thinner rails are inspired by the much loved Longboard range for the ultra-responsive and reactive feel.

> Mono concave - Generates lift, drive and speed as it channels the water from nose to tail, through to double concave for sensitive rail to rail turning from the midpoint, through to vee tail for reactive pivot turning on the tail.

> Rounded pin tail - The Wedge has a new rounded pin tail to maximize the turning ability in these wider models. The pin tail makes it easier to engage and sink the tail for faster bottom turns and top turns with more drive. Rounded tail also gives the board a better drive out of the turns.

> Fin set up - Thruster fin setup provides comfortable straight line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf. 8’7″ & 8’0″ features both thruster and quad. Quad fin set up uses 4 side fins and gives fast acceleration and instant down the line speed as it does not have a drag from the larger centre fin.

> Fin Supply - Blue Carbon comes with Prepreg Carbon fins. Starlite and Limited Series come with Armacore center fin and Net Positive side fins. 8’0” x 32” Starlite and Limited Series come with Armacore fins.

 

What sizes does the Wedge come in?

> 11'2" x 32" / 198L - An extra stable ride with easy glide for longer distance paddles and early entry into waves. Widely accessible for riders up to 115kg wanting a stable board to learn with progression in smaller surf.

Available constructions: Limited Series

> 10'2" x 32" / 183L - Fast, reactive and controlled; the stable surfing all-rounder. A great option for those wanting the glide for cruising, solid stability from the width and improved surfing performance with the new shape upgrades.

Available constructions: Blue Carbon / Starlite / Limited Series

> 9'2" x 32" / 160L - A favorite in the testing and development, it turned heads with its control and responsiveness. The 9’2” is so much more responsive to turn as the thinner rails requires less foot pressure to initiate turns. Ultra reactive and sensitive.

Available construction: Blue Carbon / Starlite / Limited Series

> 8'7" x 32" / 143L - Shorter, stable and sensitive. The thinner rails make the board respond and feel like a narrower board, sharing a similar characteristic to the much loved Airborn and Longboard ranges. The 8’7” really is the stable high-performance shortboard for those that want to rip yet have enough to make sessions longer.

Available constructions: Blue Carbon / Starlite / Limited Series

> 8'0" x 32" / 123L - This board suited for lighter riders or those wanting added maneuverability and performance. The 8’0″ fits in the pocket and critical section of the wave.

Available constructions: Blue Carbon / Starlite / Limited Series

 

What construction does it come in?

BLUE CARBON
THE BEST VALUE FULL CARBON CONSTRUCTION WE HAVE EVER PRODUCED

• Top grade 150g Biaxial Carbon wraps the entire board, joining with an overlap on the deck and bottom to create flat stringer, increasing the total breakage strength.

• 2 skins of durable fibre glass form a sandwich around the biaxial Carbon, protecting the carbon by dampening and absorbing the impact.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom work together to increase the overall total breakage strength.

• Multiple reinforcements in the standing area, nose and tail increase impact resistance.

 

STARLITE
THE STRONGEST RAIL EVER TESTED

• Ultra-durable, scratch and impact resistant woven 200g twill azure rail protection.

• The combination of twin T-stringers deck and bottom to protect against total breakage. The T-stringers are positioned close to the rail working like an i-beam to endure heavy drops and strong wipeouts.

• Starlite now features a full deck of 0.6mm Australian pine wood which is sandwiched between 2 glass outer skins, increasing the overall total breakage strength and reducing the weight due to lower resin absorption.

 

LIMITED SERIES
TIMELESS LOOK, SOLID PERFORMANCE

Twin T-stringers made from glass fibre are positioned on the deck and bottom of the board close to the rail, providing a massive increase in the overall strength against total breakage in surf.
An additional wide layer of 200g glass wraps the rails for higher strength against paddle impact and further reinforces the overall strength against buckling.
The deck features reinforced biaxial glass and Australian pine, to resist heel dents and impact from the standing area.
The nose and tail are wrapped in multiple layers of glass fiber for further strength on these impact zones.
