AIR17 X is designed to fit an essential part of every surfer’s quiver – to be as fast and critical as possible in average, crumbly waves to fun, steeper conditions.
One of the key elements to the AIR17 X working so well is its rocker, which is even flatter than the Air 17. Tailored to suit Julian’s surfing in a wide range of waves, this board is relatively flat through the middle of the board (particularly under front foot), allowing a nice sweet spot to add forgiveness and ease of generating speed. Late curve in the nose and tail provide an ideal balance of release and maneuverability to keep you surfing your best even in smaller or tricky conditions.
AIR17 X comes stock as a thruster. Alterative setups are available with custom orders.
AIR17 X has medium full rails, helping to reduce catch from chop or soft sections.
AIR17 X features a single concave starting at the nose, which runs into a double concave starting in front of the fins. Compared to the Performer Series version, AIR17 X has slightly deeper concaves, particularly through the fins, providing more lift. Overall, this bottom contour allows for easy maneuverability while still giving the board as much control as possible.
