    WHERE THERE’S CHOP, YOU NEED POP 

    The downwind game changer for choppy water and open-ocean conditions, the 14' x 25" Ace is the ultimate downwind race board.

    “The Ace is a magic board. The extra volume in the nose makes it easy to paddle up and over bumps, in both upwind and downwind conditions. Having a recessed deck makes it possible to paddle a narrower board, even in bumpy conditions. If you can paddle a narrower board and still be stable, that means that you can put more power into your stoke and the total volume that you are pushing through the water is less, which means you will go faster. The Ace is my go to board for anything from light downwinders here in the Gorge to big ocean swells. This board helps connect one bump to another and really opens up the downwinding range!” Fiona Wylde  

    • Designed for slightly more advanced riders paddling in choppy and open ocean conditions.
    • Curved rocker line for acceleration and entry onto bumps, connecting between waves and speed upwind.
    • Cockpit standing area has been extended for added sensitivity to trim up and down the board to stay forever-catching bumps.
    • High vertical side walls provide pop in chop and lowers the center of gravity for increased stability for the rider to exert maximum power with every stroke. Also restricts water entering the tray.
    • Widened inside the tray at the tail for more room placing your feet back for improved stability and buoyancy when buoy turning.
    • Added volume in the tail forces the tail to pop up immediately once submerged, minimizing drag.
    • NACA profile outline with its narrow tail provides an incredibly efficient release of water. 
    • Race Ultra Light Core Fin, a perfect combination for creating a well balanced behaviour in ocean swell and flatwater, with enough rake to go through seaweed.

    RIDER FEEDBACK

    “I choose the Ace when downwinding as it’s the most fun you can have with the wind at your back. It is also perfect for those really choppy days or when the ocean is like a washing machine. The ace is very forgiving as you are standing right on the waterline in the dugout position! Can’t wait until summer in Perth to get this board out again.” Michael Booth
