LITE TECH

LIGHT, STRONG, AFFORDABLE
  • Shoulder carry strap insert. Shoulder carry strap not included but can be purchased separately and attached to the inserts.
  • Extra rigidity with the introduction of unidirectional stringer bands and solid with added rail / nose reinforcements.
  • Australian pine on the standing area for extra impact resistance and rigidity in the most critical area.
  • All inserts have added high-density foam reinforcements.

OUTLINE

  • Fairly parallel, which delivers a predictable and controlled glide. The wide nose delivers fast acceleration when sprinting as it floats on top of the water. The tail is pulled into a square shape, making it easier to sink for fast buoy turns and most responsive to turn sharply in surf.

ROUND VEE NOSE

  • Helps lift the board to accelerate faster and maintain a higher top speed.
  • It also floats over chop smoothly, making it versatile to handle all conditions.

GRADUAL NOSE KICK

  • Helps stop the board from diving in the surf and downwind, as well as lifting over chop upwind.
  • The curved rocker is fast on flats, smooth in the surf and very capable in chop.

RAIL THICKNESS

  • Maintained throughout the entire profile of the board, giving a balanced glide from nose to tail. The Generation is thinner than a Touring and Race board, making it lighter to maneuver and easier to carry.

RAIL TUCK EDGE

  • Round to avoid nose catching, sharpening at the middle to create a stable platform, through to sharp edge at the tail to carve in surf.

DEEP DOUBLE CONCAVE

  • Supports the round Vee with stability direct under foot.

RECESSED PAD

  • For comfort and stability. The flat deck makes it easy to move freely around when trimming the board and surfing on the tail.

BUNGEE TIE DOWN

  • A Bungee tie down in front of the board for storing gear and supplies.

THRUSTER FIN SET UP

  • A single fin set up provides good straight-line tracking and is easy to buoy turn when racing.
  • A thruster set up with the 5.5” side fins proved the best combination for added drive and control to turn the board with ease in surf.

SUPBoarder Magazine says “Every paddler should own a board like the Generation”
