The new Nano Pro is based on Keith Teboul’s work with Jeffery and Finn Spencer on Maui. They are young riders who have very different needs, like so many kids getting into the Sup world for the first time.
Following this high demand for smaller Sup boards for kids and the great feedback we received on the initial Nano Pro, it was a pleasure for Keith to again bring his surfing knowledge into the smaller boards. They have similar lengths and volumes in the smaller range. The outline on these boards is progressive, with a relatively aggressive rocker, as kids need all the help they can get to turn as they are small and light. We incorporated the Integrated Stability Deck on a more expanded area of the board to create an even more stable platform to stand, paddle and surf on. There is a 3/4 aft pad for supreme comfort.
These boards are fast stable, easy to paddle and nimble to turn. Your kids will be ripping it up on the Nano Pro before you know it.
The new Glide Pro is more surfing oriented throughout all its sizes. Keith Teboul’s idea for the Glide Pro was to create something easy, stable and fast to paddle, yet it has a shining spark in its wave maneuverability.
The board comes with solid rockers and full outlines, giving it a completely different level of stability and comfort, greatly enhanced by the Integrated Stability Deck, which serves as an ergonomic stance platform, working slightly against the convex deck, offering a solid stance. The nose rocker has a lower entry for ease of paddling and a very constant glide, hence the name. The bottom transitions from single to double to vee for a very agile board.
To us the Glide Pro is the go to board for cruising and small waves. This is the Sup that Keith and his wife grab and go to the south side, throw their dog onboard and ride the fun waves.
The deck consists of a generous diamond grove Quatro pad covering both your paddling and surfing stance for added comfort, while leaving the nose and rails bare to save weight for improved performance. All boards come with a raised tail kick for added grip when riding waves.
The Glide features a plug to attach a windsurfing rig.
The new Glide is identical to the Glide Pro except for it’s more affordable construction ideal for surf schools.
Offering a durable, tough and light board, but considerably more affordable than our Pro Sup constructions, the Glide uses a cubed fused cell foam core. An advanced wood sandwich build guarantees for light weight and supreme water resistance.
Regular Glide models feature unidirectional glass rein-forced rails for extra stiffness in surf conditions. High grade epoxy resin creates an impact resistant outer skin while increasing overall hull strength.
The Glide features a plug to attach a windsurfing rig.
The new Carve Pro has been radically changed from previous years to deliver a vastly improved experi- ence for paddlers of all abilities and weights. The range sees the introduction of a new bigger Carve Pro for heavier paddlers as well as a new smaller board for advanced, professional and lighter weight riders.
New features on this board include a faster rocker, the boards simply accelerate quicker and have a faster top end speed on the wave, making turns more radical. You can make the section easier than on previous models. The faster rocker also helps increase paddling speed, making it easier to catch waves and get into the best positons. This is especially noticeable in fast waves and crowded line ups. Speed is so important in small and big waves alike and these new boards have lots of it.
Furthermore the new Carve Pro delivers increased nose lift in combination with a narrower nose width, this really helps when dropping, especially late drops on bigger waves when you don’t want the nose to catch. Thinner rails aid in a looser feel, and a tighter turning radius. The new narrower overall width is faster, while a more shallow tail makes the the board feel smaller to enhance the surfboard feeling with more release on the top turn.
The Integrated Stability Deck provides a stabel ride. This greatly helps to reduce fatigue, especially with smaller tippy boards. The new Carve Pro comes with a 3/4 pad.
The Thruster or Quad option allows a wide range of tuning. In bigger surf you can really benefit from the quad option for more speed and grip.
The Carve Pro delivers a consistent feel through the range. Each board has similar surfing characteristics with some progression as the boards get smaller. The 7’7” is the most extreme board in the range, while the larger boards in the range are a little more forgiving and make it easy to surf, have fun and progress.
These boards excel at anything from 1⁄2 ft to 15 ft faces, they love to be surfed. Each board in the new range was tested in a wide range of conditions in Hawaii, Califor- nia, South America & Europe. The result is a range which is built to handle a huge array of waves. Speed is so important in small and big waves and these new boards have lots of it. If the waves are big or the water choppy then changing up a board size has often been a good idea. Stability was also incredibly important to make these boards user friendly in a wide range of conditions, for example in big waves there is a lot of water moving around and staying upright and confident is very important. In choppy, lumpy conditions, being stable, these new boards enable you to use a smaller board and surf better.
The optimal wave size for this range would be 2 to 10ft faces, this is what most people surf in and hence this is what the boards are optimized for. The 7’7” is a little narrower compared rest of the range and is tuned for more advanced surfing and hence can handle even faster waves, which riders of this board will tend to seek out.
If you are very experienced on the 7’10” and want to take your surfing to a new level this could be your next board. This is a board with no limits.
The Surf is a super light handling and soft feeling beginner sail for newbie windsurfers and schools.
Dacron and PVC create a very durable trainer sail that can be left rigged for extended periods. Its bright red color is easy to spot from the shore or across the water.
Soft, playful, easy and incredibly durable, the Surf is the perfect beginner sail, or an excellent sail for just cruising on a big board in light wind.
We added two bigger sizes to the range and the batten configuration now ranges from 1 batten on the smaller sizes to 3 battens on the bigger sizes, to provide the best compromise between weight and rig stability.
We constantly keep improving and developing the Surf to cater directly to centers’ and customers’ needs, listening closely and implementing first hand observations and suggestions.
The Scion Pro has received a number of small upgrades, including a new scrim luff, making it eligible for Pro status, and it shows just as much as is is to be felt.
This super lightweight, highly durable, easy handling sail delivers premium performance, targeting kids and light riders under 45 kilos.
Once again modeled after the highly successful Fringe concept, the Scion Pro delivers all the key features of a top level wave sail, low end power, stability and easy handling. Learning to plane, jump, surf and loop is a blast on this performance wave sail without limitations.
The Nexus Pro is the best choice for power, speed and maneuvers in conditions ranging from flat water to bump and jump. This model is super popular, we’ve had great testing and the customer feedback on this sail has been nothing but universal acclaim. Built to last, it features all of our finest construction details.
The heart and soul of Freeride windsurfing is realized in the Nexus Pro. Excellent low-end power, stability and easy control, blazing speed, big jumps and hard carving maneuvers, the sail will deliver beautifully on all of the above.
The light, easy handling of the Nexus Pro makes light wind sailing more fun, and powered up sailing more comfortable. Smaller sizes are cut with higher foots for tight maneuvering, and larger sizes are cut more for low-end power and speed. The Nexus Pro transforms to suit the conditions.
The design goal was to improve the high wind control and range of the sail, without losing any of the low end drive the sail is so well loved for. That goal has been achieved by small refinements in outline, a little shorter, a little more head outline, combined with new seam shape cuts, providing a cleaner leech edge release which improves high wind control. At the same time, the Nexus Pro remains very stable.
Racing speed made simple. The Mark Pro Freerace sail is easy to tune and even faster to rig thanks to its widened mast sleeve and camless layout.
Delivering impressive low end torque and acceleration combined with easy handling when super powered, the Mark Pro allows you to focus on your line and tactics rather than managing your sail. Super lightweight 6 batten build plus truncated boom length give the Mark Pro a compact, light, easy feeling as you accelerate, when you are powered up at speed and through high speed technical transitions around the mark. It is best paired with a freerace or dedicated racing board.
The secret to the Mark Pro’s great feeling is in the heart of the sail, the profile, twist and release. A little more shape forward, a smooth transition, and a smooth and clean release, particularly in the leech area just above the boom. The Mark Pro has a more neutral feel when powered up, and when the big gust hits, it stays settled.
The Mark X Pro is identical to the Mark Pro in every detail except for its materials and color.
While the Mark Pro comes in yellow and black monofilm, the Mark X Pro is yellow with fuchsia and pink accents. But what’s more, it features a wide spaced X-Ply window and a scrim perimeter for added durability.
This is a super light Freerace sail void of monofilm, and in that quite a special product.
The all new Mark 2 Pro is a 2 camber freerace sail delivering flat out slalom racing speed.
The Mark 2 Pro is RDM/SDM compatible on all sizes. It is best rigged in range, meaning not oversized, in fact, the opposite, since it’s so powerful you will want to ride this sail as small as you can for the board you have. The sail is highly interactive, it can set a line and blaze, but it also likes quick changes of direction, upwind, deep off the wind, speed lines and carving turns. A high performance sail based on flat out racing designs and specifically developed to perform on Hydrofoil and Slalom boards alike. Designed with real world racing and foiling in mind.
The sail delivers the instant and precise response needed in foiling, allowing the rider to adjust the power by sheeting in or out to control the flying height on the foil.
The Mark 2 Pro brings a combination of excellent top-end speed, enhanced bottom-end power, superior control and stability to performance minded riders.
The Bounce Pro is the sail for uncompromising, empowering and uplifting freestyle windsurfing. Instant? Responsive? Direct? Powerful? Hello scrim luff! With its new luff panel setup the Bounce Pro is a much more precise sail for technical Freestyle than its previous iterations.
Lightest weight, instantaneous yet flexible lifting power, stable draft for easy control, high cut foot and raised clew for duck tricks, these are the defining features of this modern technical freestyle windsurfing sail. Combined with its crisp feel there’s nothing in our range that comes close to its pop.
The Bounce Pro pushes deep in to the discipline of modern freestyle, more lift when you need it, more neutral when you don’t. Refined outlines, particularly in the foot area of the sail, make duck based tricks easier to initiate and execute.
Forward profile transition to leech edge release has been improved on this year’s Bounce Pro to offer more efficient low end power when the gust hits. When the sail loads up, that energy is turned into forward driving power and speed much more quickly.
Antoine Albert: “This year we worked a lot on the speed and pop of the new Air Pro. When I tested it for the first time, I was blown away by the limitless acceleration that this board brings, even in super choppy conditions. That speed helps a lot to go higher especially in combination with the slightly changed tail that makes the pop easier.
The new Air Pro is a bit narrower and slightly smaller, giving you more control in stronger wind and faster spins in the air, meaning its new shape is more radical than the last generation. Further, we added a smaller volume to the range for super strong wind, smaller people and kids.
The Air Pro in full production spec is following me all over the world and excels in all conditions, from Fuerteventura to Bonaire and New-Caledonia, and it allowed me to be 7th overall in the 2017 PWA freestyle champoinship.”
Jay Lee: “We tested a load of prototype boards along with their competition over the year and are finally able to introduce what we perceive to be the new fastest freestyle board on the market. The Air Pro offers incredible acceleration, super fast reactive rotations and instant planing.
The new, thick square tail design is a blessing, it gives you more grip and confidence to enter your moves faster, its release and pop send you flying higher, and it provides a wonderful forgiveness in sliding maneuvers.
The Air Pro comes with an all new MFC GE Freestyle fin that works seamlessly with this new boards.”
