Short and narrow but still very stable
Our experience of riding foils on Stand Up Paddle boards for the past few years has allowed us to design the best possible board to Stand Up Foil.
- Super Maneuverable
- Stable & Forgiving
- High Volume
Being able to control the take-off from a stand-up position really makes things easier and this is why Stand Up Foiling is fantastic. It’s not only an easier step at the beginning and it also lets you charge steeper waves as you progress. The other key aspect is that on foil you’re flying far and coming back paddling on a Stand Up is a lot more comfortable than on a Surfboard.
The challenge when designing a Stand Up Foilboard is to keep all the volume you need to paddle, keep the stability and take off ability while taking away all volume and length you don’t need while flying. The ROCKET SUP is the result of all our experience in various waves and wind conditions from the Mediterranean waves to perfect reef break.
Short and narrow but still very stable thanks to the parallel outline, the ROCKET will let you take off from your usual Stand Up Paddle position and be super manoeuvrable on the waves. Coming down under the 7’0’’ length is a fantastic step when foiling and brings you closer to the Surf Foil feeling thanks to the compact shape.
To choose you size in this new discipline is easy, just look at the volume of your actual board and not the size. Go for a ROCKET SUP that’s equal volume or slightly higher than what you use normally. The foil mast adds a lot of stability so you can use a board which is narrower than usual.
The ROCKET SUP boards can also be used to Wing foil. So whether using a paddle or a wing, they are perfect boards to fly above the waves or ocean swell.
BAMBOO SANDWICH TECH
Our SUP boards benefit from the BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY construction. Every layer of bamboo is sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass or between a layer of carbon. This allows the sandwich technology to emphasize the characteristics of the bamboo. The final result is a light structure that is super strong and extremely reliable.
The top deck of the board is lined with a layer of bamboo.
The twin track system with lateral spacing of 90mm is becoming an industry standard.
This system is compatible with all foils featuring a top plate with 4 fastening bolts. The length of the tracks enables some room to adjust the position of the foil on the board to reach everyone’s preferred balance.
For all surfers one of the inconveniences of a SUP is the large size of the rails, too big to dig into a turn. So, how do we make a sUP with a think rail without losing the volume of the board? The answer is the beveled rail.
