WIDE RIDE RANGE - THE WHOPPER:
THE WIDE RIDE WITH REAL GLIDE, THIN RAILS ON WIDE BOARDS
Stable shapes for wave riding. The Wide Ride range not only makes it easy to surf but surf better than before!
Wide Ride has a size for all rider weight and abilities; the bigger models produce the easiest glide and stability, while the smaller sizes deliver more control and manoeuvrability.
The wider nose and tail outline makes it more stable and forgiving over the Wide Point range, while offering more glide into waves and smoothness rail-to-tail compared to the Hyper Nut range.
WIDE RIDE RANGE -
Long lengths (11'0" - 9'4") and wide widths (36" - 33") give entry level to heavier riders' stability and glide to catch waves easily.
Shorter lengths (8'3") and a narrow width (30") offer lighter riders faster and tighter turning.
- Channel tail makes it easier to carry speed and hold through manoeuvres.
- Shorter nose outline makes it easier to pivot turn and fit in the critical section of the wave without catching the nose.
- Thinner rails increase the responsiveness and ease to engage rail-to-rail turns with less effort.
- Side fin boxes are positioned closer to the rail for quicker response in turns. Minimal change yet a big improvement.
10'0" x 34" - A highly popular, stable board which surprises with incredible wave riding ability.
> As a best selling model since day one, the new improved 10'0" Whopper is more responsive, has smoother rail transitions and is more whippy to turn,
> Thinned out rails on the nose increases manoeuvrability, while the wider fin position is more responsive to foot pressure.
> Channeled tail helps to hold tighter turns and redirects faster during top turns.
Bottom shape: Mono-concave to V with double concave to channel tail
9'4" x 33" - Shorter length gives greater manoeuvrability with easier turning in the surf.
> Thinner rails on the nose reduce the swing weight and helps generate more speed when pumping down the line.
> "The new 9'4" feels much more playful and reactive" - Martijn Van Depth
> "The thinner rails and shorter nose outline helped finish manoeuvres without catching the nose when redirecting" - Sean Poynter
Bottom shape - Mono-concave to V with double concave to channel tail
