The ROCKET SUP DW PRO was designed to minimize drag and to promote early and efficient take-offs in any conditions, whether it’s flat waters or big open ocean bumps.
This board benefits from the best compromise between length, width and volume so as to remain accessible to the highest number of riders. Its long and narrow shape brings fantastic glide and high speed for paddle starts, while its boxy rails lead to great stability.
With the ROCKET SUP DW PRO, paddle efficiently and get onto foil easily and unbelievably fast all while benefitting from great stability. Volume is distributed to keep the rider’s paddling position very close to the flying position and to minimize changes in the feet and stance. The balance between the front and back leg is excellent, allowing you to put just the right amount of power on the front leg before and during the take-off phase without the board ever nose diving.
The nose is streamlined and keeps enough volume and buoyancy for aggressive paddling and take-off, further helping to get some momentum for easy starts when in the bumps. The tail is pinched in to improve water flow and reduce the drag. The lower tail volume also helps rocking and pumping the board for take-off.
The rails have been optimized for more comfort during take-offs and in the air. The bevel on the lower rail makes the board easier to handle during touchdowns and reduces friction at speed. The hard chines of the bevel improve water separation, thus helping during take-off and reducing deceleration on touchdowns. A third chine at the back provides extra stability and improves water separation at the tail as well.
Finally, the flat hull noticeably features a small step which brings air onto the rear part of the hull. This reduces friction and once again helps during take-off.
Once up on the foil, the board is designed to be super stable. The subtle, recessed cockpit-like deck lowers your center of gravity and brings you closer to the foil, leading to excellent control of the board in-flight.
The ROCKET SUP DW PRO benefits from the same shape as its CARBON counterpart, but features an ultra-light Bamboo Deck Construction. Using a layer of bamboo only on the deck, this construction has been optimized to guarantee the board is as light as possible, all while ensuring strength and durability as well. The feeling of the foil is super direct, and control is absolute throughout the entire downwind, even at high speeds.
Naturally, the ROCKET SUP DW PRO is slightly less stiff than its CARBON counterpart, particularly when pumping, but the performance potential on the water is close as both boards have the same shape and program.
With its outstanding and easy take-off abilities, this board will satisfy all riders and make downwind further accessible to those who always wanted to try. It is also incredible with a wing in lighter winds, and it can surf really well, even in very small waves. Take off far outside on non-breaking waves and make the most of the board’s maneuverability and direct feeling to surf until the shore break.
It is available in three different widths: 18” (80.5L – 110L), 19” (86L – 110L) and 20” (98L – 130L). This makes for a total of 15 different sizes to choose from depending on the needed volume and length, as well as the skill level of each rider. All boards are equipped with a full pad and the Twin-Tracks system for foil compatibility. These Twin-Tracks are positioned further forward to reflect the new balance of the board and again to facilitate take-off, pumping and flying behavior.
The perfect balance between stability, accessibility, glide and easy starts, the ROCKET SUP DW PRO will undoubtedly get you hooked on downwinds.
