AIR17 is designed for a wide range of surfers in an array of different conditions – from small, weak surf to the days we all dream about.
One of the key elements to the AIR17 working so well is its rocker – tailored to suit Julian’s surfing in a wide range of waves. A flatter rocker extending through the middle of the board (particularly under front foot) allows a nice sweet spot to add forgiveness and ease of generating speed, while late curve in the nose and tail provides an ideal balance of release and maneuverability.
AIR17 comes stock as a thruster. Alterative setups are available with custom orders.
AIR17 is glassed standard with 4 x 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)
AIR17 has medium full rails, helping to reduce catch from chop or soft sections.
AIR17 features a single concave starting at the nose, which runs into a double concave starting in front of the fins. Compared to other PERFORMER SERIES models like the Monsta, concave on the AIR17 is slightly deeper, 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.
