From South Point and Rocky's to Lefties and Bears the Rocket 9 can handle it all.
Here's what Dane Gudauskas has to say about it.
The Rocket9 outline has the wide point forward a bit and the tail is pulled in making it super snappy and maneuverable. The swallow gives a great fast release as well. One of the major desires for this board was I wanted was to go fast and then turn hard when I wanted in waves ranging from super average beach breaks all the way to grinding little tubes. It’s one of the most versatile boards I have ever ridden.
I like to ride my Rocket9 two inches shorter than my normal shortboard length. With the wider outline up front its able to hide a bit of volume under the chest to make the paddling still super easy even though you are on a shorter board.
