This board is currently being tested by windsurf magazine and will be available late February. It will have been used for a few hours only. Full warranty.
This is a great board
The highest and furthest jumps can be achieved with Slalom gear but they don’t turn on the wave and definitely don’t resist the landings. This new concept in our range is made for the airtime lovers who don’t want to sacrifice the wave riding. With the Powerbox on the Thruster setup we leave it up to you which fin to choose to go fast and jump high or ride waves and slice turns.
Optical aspect & Footpads:
With the new graphic aspect influenced by Italian designer Fabio Canella we are taking a new direction and be more coloured while still keep it simple.
The 6mm thick over-dotted diamond groove grip pad has an extra 6mm soft sponge under-layer which makes it total 12mm and very nice and comfortable.
The very fast rocker line with rather little rocker is planning very quick. The “bat-tail” and side cut-outs have a similar effect like on a slalom board and release the water earlier and drive the board up to top speed in no time and make the board feel loose on the straight line and agile in the turns.
Very fast rocker line with little rocker for top planning, acceleration and top speed.
Same as the QT-WAVE it has a balanced thickness under the feet and mast track to be close in contact with the fins for good control, grip and manoeuvrability but it is still thick enough to be able and push for top speed and high jumps.
In comparison to the QT-WAVE it is wider at “1-foot” to be able and push even more for planning, acceleration and top speed. The cut-out on the tail bottom is a kind of hidden winger which reduces the tail width in the back-strap area and brings similar advantages. The reduced surface let the water release earlier and increases especially acceleration and top speed but it also helps to tilt the board over into the bottom turn and roll back easier into the cutback.
The goal was a fast controlled smooth ride and this we achieved with a single concave under the mast track running into a “double concaved V” under the straps on the two smaller boards while the bigger board performed best with the “double concaved V” running all the way through the bottom.
Rails / Tuck:
To improve the turning ability on the wider shape we reduced the rail thickness in comparison the QT-Wave. For better and faster release, the tuck is a bit sharper as well and improve the early planning acceleration and top speed.
Flat decks are ankle breaking when it comes to push for top speed and the reduced rail thickness in combination with the slight thicker center of the board makes the deck more dome and much more comfortable when fully planning in the straps. As well the extra dome under the back foot helps to get more grip during the air time rotations and after all the more triangle form on the cross section is stronger for landing jumps.
The F-wave comes equiped with 3x PATRIK fins.
Center Powerbox for more performance on the straight line with 2x side Slot boxes for the extra grip in the turn.
Each insert has 4-positions and on the front strap has a double plug to be able and change width and angle for different foot size and riding style.
