Rocket Wide by CI

The Rocket wide is a favourite amongst the Board Store staff. Its full bodied outline means you can ride the board 2-3 inches shorter than your everyday shortboard without sacrificing any paddle-ability.

The rail line through the backend of the Rocket Wide is super straight which is partly due to its swallow tail design, This gives the board a surprisingly good amount of drive which comes in handy surfing punchy West Oz reef breaks and beachies.

If the waves aren't so punchy its flat rocker will assist by offering plenty of easy up and go speed!

 

2-4ft is what you want to be surfing this board in!

From the shaper;

Introducing the Rocket Wide. The incredibly user-friendly cousin of the Rocket 9.

"My brothers and I loved the speed and control we were feeling with the Rocket 9 and we wanted to see how we could apply those same levels of fun and performance to a board for small and gutless waves. The Rocket Wide features a wider tail block to skate across flat sections and a wider nose area to accommodate for better paddle power. It's a shorter, wider skate machine designed to lift the fun factor when the waves are not a their best. So don't let those small days get you down cause the Rocket Wide is ready for blast off!!" -Dane

Available stock in 3 or 5 fin configurations.

Advanced surfers will ride this 2"-4" shorter than their height.
