THE FALCON is the ultimate step-up board for those who are looking to tackle and rip larger surf. Mix speed, power, and control for when it gets BIG and you're sure to have a board that does the name (Falcon) justice with its fast-flying versatility. 

The Falcon is ideal for waves that pack punch and are too big for the smaller high-performance boards in the Genration Edition range. Rip fast and take to the larger waves like you never have before. See you in 'flight'.

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

An allround board that works well for the whole family no matter what the paddling discipline.

Conditions it's working best

Softer more open waves. From ankle high waves up to just overhead.

Maneuvers it does best

Power carves and high speed hacks.

 Skill level it's best for

Intermediate to Pro.

 Paddle Power

SPEED: Average paddle speed.

DIRECTIONAL CONTROL: Good, low rails and narrowness keep it tracking straight.

OVER WHITE WATER: Below average due to narrower nose.

WAVE CATCHING ABILITY: Most drops will be late, but every aspect is designed so you stick it.

What you thought of when you designed it?

This board is the product of many renditions and rigorous testing by team riders Sean Poynter and Daniel Hughes. After many sessions in exotic locations, the final version of the Falcon was hatched.

What it possibly compromises on then?

No compromises, it just needs to be ridden in the right conditions.

Design info

Outline

Sleek clean bump free outline to pintail. In juicy waves, the biggest priority is firstly making the drop. Having a narrower nose in certain cases means less paddle power, however having less nose area does not catch the wind, so there’s less chance of digging a rail at the bottom. The narrower nose blends into a straighter clean curve which carries speed well while the rail is engaged or you're drawing a line around a section. As you step back onto the pin you can either wash off speed for a stall or attack sections with confidence, knowing the tail will bite and hold.

Rails

Pinched in the middle, low in the tail. The pinched rail allows more volume to be packed into a more compact package and allows the deck line to be relatively flat in the standing area, adding comfort. Throughout, the rail line is low enough to offer great hold and penetration of the face so you can feel super confident in serious conditions.

Rocker

Full performance rocker. A clean even curve all the way through. Feed it power and you have control even in the tightest parts of the wave. It loves to stick the latest drops, attack sections tight at speed and it feels really comfortable in the bowl.

Bottom

Flat upfront blending into a single concave through the middle, to a double concave into the back foot and subtle V on the exit. The concave upfront helps initiate a turn earlier, keeps the board responsive, as your rail will engage the second your mind decides to. We have purposely kept the concave out of the nose, this is to reduce over sensitivity and keep the front rail higher out of the water. At speed, if your front rail engages when you don’t want it to, it can throw you off or into a spin. The double concave then creates a spine where the stringer would be but also allows the transition into the subtle V to be smoother. This subtle V kicks in when you are right on the back foot, when somewhere critical it offers that bit more hold and control helping to bed the tail in.  

Deck

Relatively flat in the standing area through to roll in the tail. Being flat in the standing area adds a level of comfort and stability to the board, whilst keeping the roll towards the tail means the rails can stay nice and low giving you great penetration.

Fins

5 Fins. Thruster all day long for top to bottom surfing, throw in the Quads when the drops are late and it's more down the line, or you’re wanting to hold the high line with more speed.

Final Statement

A good board for big conditions. If you consistently surf big waves and want a board in the quiver to tackle them, this could well be an option.
