The V3-STEALTH...Is based off the overwhelming popularity of the V3-Rocket. Inspired by input and requests from team riders and friends with the desire to extend the feel of theV3-Rocket into a board built around a more traditional nose template. The desired effect resulting in a board blending the positive characteristics of the V3-Rocket, combined with the quickness, performance and visuals of a standard shortboard. Years ago we took the original “OG-Rocket” and pulled in the nose to create the STEALTH model, “stealth-ly” hiding a hybrid board into traditional forward outline. Today, we are doing it again, except with the V3. Technically, we added length and rocker to the nose, and pulled the forward outline in to more resemble a modern SB nose template. The tail has more pronounced, fluted wings and a more radical “Rocket” diamond at the end. The deeper wings add grip and control by reducing surface area. The flutes help the rail to permeate the surface, as well as reduce the rail volume, for more precise and surface permeating carving. The bottom still contains the V3’s relaxed centerline rocker, for glide and down the line drive, and a healthy amount of concave. The concave adds considerable lift, and creates a hyper curved rail rocker under the rear foot, allowing the surfer to turn freely and precisely when the board is rolled onto a rail. The V3-Stealth offers high speed, wide tail glide for fat faced fun, combined with the ability for fast, vertical, precise pocket surfing...in even marginal conditions. Ride the V3-Stealth 1-2” longer than a stock V3-Rocket. Domestic dims for the bigger, more conservative surfer, or for surfers who want to ride this design shorter in length.

CARBON WRAP Technology

CARBON WRAP™ Is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Originally created by Gold Coast surfboard manufacturer, Dan MacDonald, to be light weight without sacrificing strength and provide #nextlevel performance.

Carbon Wrap eliminates the standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-envisions the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled. Ultra-light, EPS cores are “wrapped” in an exoskeleton of strategically positioned, carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins. The carbon then “wraps” from the bottom, around the rails and onto the deck.

This unique method creates Carbon Wrap’s lively flex that loads and releases…resulting in nextlevel speed and drive. Running along the rails, on the deck, the carbon acts as a rear foot power point, (increasing drive and control) and a patch to minimize pressure denting. Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are encased with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and our exclusive carbon deck inlay, which is strategically positioned to add fast re-flex memory under the surfer’s stance and allow subtle, natural deck caving around the arch of the front foot. 

By tapering the carbon into long, pointed ends, forward and aft, the flex blends out naturally towards the nose and tail.  A full layer of 45degree “X-Glass”, encases the deck. The X-Glass’s flat, bi-axel weave dramatically adds strength without rigidity, or excess weight and allows the board to maintain flex while alleviating crease points created by standard, 90degree fiberglass. The 45degree weave radiates foot pressure outward, directly connecting the foot to a longer section of the rail, adding greater edge control.

CARBON WRAP TECHNOLOGY: Lightweight, without sacrificing strength.  Increases drive and provides and unique and lightning fast re-flex effect,  propelling your surfing into the #nextlevel of performance. More info here.
