Great board for those who are lucky enough to live in an area where the wind blows a lot.
WA, MAUI, NEW CALEDONIA etc. Or a board to add to the quiver if you want the perfect board for all conditions.
About the Board
GENERAL GOAL/THEME OF THE BOARD
A race board designed for rough ocean conditions. With a downwind focus in design the board works well upwind and crosswind also.
CONDITIONS ITS WORKING BEST
This board will go down wind better than any other board in the FAAST range, possibly with the exception of the Unlimited range.
SKILL LEVEL ITS BEST FOR
Novice to Pro.. Just choose width accordingly
WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF WHEN YOU DESIGNED IT?
The board has high volume nose area and nose rocker to suit bumpy conditions and kept the nose from diving under.
Thin outline in the tail for excellent release and glide. Dugout standing area for stability and stiffness.
Fin placed to keep the board loose and east to turn
WHAT IST POSSIBLY COMPROMISES ON THEN?
All other FAAST’s in the range will out perform this board in the flat water.
SHAPE DETAILS SUMMARY | DESIGN INFO
FULLER NOSE AREA, SKINNY TAIL, PIN AT BOTH ENDS
The wider high volume nose keeps the board from diving under and the skinny tail helps to release the water flow from the board.
SOFT RAILS THAT HARDEN SLIGHTLY THROUGH THE MIDDLE
Forgiving rails through the whole board so they don’t grab and steer the board keeping it controllable for paddle power and steering off the tail when you need to.
DOWNWIND STYLE ROCKER…
Rocker is based on ease of use down wind. Plenty of kick in the nose to keep it above water. Moderate tail rocker to keep it fitting in the bumps but not so much that it reduces glide.
The board is dugout which allows you to stand lower to the water and therefor more stable in the board. Also you use a shorter paddle allowing you to get more power from each stroke. The dugout design also allows us to carry through that volume into the nose area and also adds stiffness to the board.
Great directional control.
