Step forward in waveboard evolution.
Short length, nose width, relatively flat rocker and a quad fin setup amount to a unique sensation on the water: unparalleled reactivity. Hence the name: Reactor. The Reactor will create drive through turns and redirect immediately when hitting the lip. It will fit into tighter pockets and boost airs
easily. Ideal for European cross-on shore conditions and down-theline wave riding. It is a whole new sensation.

ìFirst tested the board in on-shore conditions of Thailand and Tenerife, then took it to Gnaraloo Westeren Australia for quality wave testing. This is where it showed its diversity in handling full speed down the line conditions with aplomb. Coming from the Quad, you have to adapt to its reactivity. If you applied the same pressure, the board would respond too erratically but when you adjusted to handle, new lines were able to be drawn. Never before could I redirect at the lip so late, due to the response time. And the confidence felt due to the width, created a more positive mental attack
– Scott McKercher, chief wave designer

Features:

  • Rocker: Fast and flat rocker for speed; both in the straight line and on the wave.
  • Bottom Shape: Heavy Vee off the tail allows for quick rail-to-rail transitions. Foot pressure is instantly rewarded. Combination of single and double concaves from fins to nose for speed, control and reactivity.
  • Fins: Quad fin setup provides grip and drive with amazing projection through the lip when hit, holding a rail or blowing the tail. Back fins have a wider base for more grip; front fins provide stability and control while driving the board through the turns.
  • Fins: New for 2016, the Drake Ready to Freestyle by Taty Frans fits into a PowerBox fin for maximum strength.
  • Outline: Compact and stubby, with a lot of nose width. Waist-high or logo waves, a shorter board fits into tighter pockets, making for more radical surfing. Width makes it easier to hit (and not miss) the lip, and improves stability and confidence in the rider.
  • Rails: Relatively fine rails, with softer low-apex rails towards the nose for grip and sharper rails in the back for planing release and bite.
