“Before mass media marketeers played Hypto-Crypto with your mind, making you believe in the Sci-Fi that Ghosts and Monstas were more than just Average Joes, Diving through Dumpsters along the Seaside...there was TheROCKET!...and we ain’t talking 9or Wide. Before Instagram and the endless charade of social media surfboard model marketing melted our minds, real word of mouth made one little board iconic throughout the surfing world.... The ROCKET.
"Birthed from a broken blank and the brains of Beschen (Shane) and Budroe, the original Rocket was to simply build a board for baby Beschen (Noah) to learn on. Once ridden by Shane, everything changed, and he felt compelled to bring us his fabulous find to be refined. Happy accidents have been a staple of surfboard progression, since the beginning. As we started fine tuning and building them for the boys, we knew were had something special.Fast forward a year, and the 2009 video release of “5’5 Redux”.
The ROCKET was a star of the show, ridden by a parade of guest rippers cutting loose on the little weapon.From Bros to Pros, The ROCKET was soon a global hit, being enjoyed by surfers of all shapes, sizes and skill sets. Now, more than a decade after its initial release, the ROCKET returns. A re-incarnated Redux for the new generation to enjoy another run of fun... The Rocket Redux. We’ve strived to retain all the original ROCKET design details and magic: The extremely low and fast entry rocker, counterbalanced by a hyper-extended tail curve, for instantaneous down the line drive and playfully precise turning.The deepest of concaves, created by a straight center line stringer and a curvaceous rail rocker lends lift and liveliness. The wide tail and parallel, bullet like, outline provides plenty of speed and hold. The hooked diamond“Rocket”tail adds bite and hold in firm, rear footed carves.
While the Rocket Redux stays true to the original ROCKET, to bring a serious performance boost we’ve: Refined and cleaned curves, made the rails a bit more refined, and updated some details just enough to keep up with the things we've learned since.“Fast, precise, playful and just plain fun, the ROCKET Redux is fast paddling, easy to ride, iconic, every day, speed burning, pocket turning, no need for good waves yearning, bullet of a board for everyone.

Diamond Series Carbon Wrap
CARBON WRAP is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the need for a standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-defines the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled. Ultra-light Aero Blank EPS cores are ‘wrapped’ with strategically positioned diamond series carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins. The all new Diamond edition Carbon Wrap has seen decrease in Carbon Fibre strands visible through the tape, giving it minimal look. This minimal look has not compromised strength as the missing carbon has been replaced with an extra strong XS glass that has very strong tensile strength along with much improved flex characteristics. The updated reinforcing element allows for more overall flex resulting in better performance. Combined with the new Flex2Volume program, Diamond Edition Carbon Wrap will have an enhanced energy that can be tailored to volume in each board. Until now, flex patterns in surfboards have had a ‘one flex fits all’ approach. All boards have been made with one flex strength, regardless of the size of the board, or the rider. With the advent of Flex2Volume, we are now able to offer different flex patterns that correspond to the volume of the board, vastly increasing performance. Smaller boards will feature a more forgiving flex pattern and larger boards will have more reinforced carbon on the deck to suit the larger rider.
