THE INSANE is for when it’s BIG! A performance step-up shape with an outline and rocker to handle the big waves out there. Anything from above over-head to double over-head is when you want to go insane.

This is the exact same board our pro’s are riding in competition when it’s huge.

INSANE is whats its for...

The INSANE was made because its not possible to use the same board everywhere. Especially when its big.

A step up is not a board we sell a lot of, but that why we have always been asked for them. Bert coming from WA, Australia is also most familiar with larger waves. So this board really came pretty natural.

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

A step up for surfing solid over head waves...

Wave type ||| size it's working best

Juicy heavy waves..  ||| Head and a half plus..

Maneuvers it does best

Power carves and high speed hacks…

Skill level it's best for

Advanced to Pro..

Paddle power

SPEED: Below average due to a healthy rocker..

DIRECTIONAL CONTROL: Good, low rail and narrowness keep it going forward..

OVER WHITE WATER: Also below average due to narrower nose..

WAVE CATCHING ABILITY: Most drops will be late, but every aspect is designed so you stick it (no point getting in earlier only to come unstuck on the way down) 

What you thought of when you designed it?

The Goal was a board for solid waves, firstly from team guys in Hawaii and South West Australia then advanced customers from there and different parts of the world, James Casey has been invaluable in taking this model and refining it to the next level for radical surfing at Sunset…

What is possibly compromises on then?

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

Outline

Sleek clean outline, flyer, pin-tail...

In juicy waves, the biggest priority is firstly making the drop, with the narrower nose, while on one hand maybe the paddle power is not so good, having less nose area does not catch the wind and has 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 your drawing a line around a section, the flyer helps to break that drawn out line and allow you to tighten up a turn, square off and pull into a tighter part of the wave or snap under the lip at speed, 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…

Rails

Very low, super refined in the tail…

Low rail with a distinctly tucked under edge that carries past the flyer.. 

A low rail is just so much more sensitive for surfing.. When you initiate a turn, the first thing you do is bury one rail, if that rail is thick and boxy, your trying to fight it into the water, the faster you go, the harder it is to bury a thick rail because your working against both buoyancy and the flow of on coming water.. 

The bottom edge is really tucked under, with less hard edge than you would find on most other boards in the tail..

This helps with really late drops, the type where your almost falling out of the lip..

A hard edge in this case, has more release, so at the point on the face where the board wants to engage and stick, it doesn’t, it will drift a little, potentially placing you under a falling lip.. But the tucked under edge, holds the face really well (like an old school log), if it’s a free fall, it will grab the face at the very point you land, lets you ease in, holding a higher line, keeping you out of trouble..

Only in the last 6” of the tail does the edge finally get hard and refined, but also with the apex at the bottom edge, with the tail rail being so fine it slices through the water with ease at high speed..


Rocker

Full, Banana 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, loves to stick the latest drops, attack sections tight and at speed, feels really comfortable in the bowl..

Bottom

Flat nose, blending in a single concave under the front foot, double under the back foot and V out the tail..

The concave up front helps initiate a turn earlier and engage the rail easily on the drop, keeps it responsive, as your rail will engage the second your mind makes a decision, 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 V to be smoother, this V kicks in when you are right on the back foot, some where critical, offers that bit more hold and control helping to bed the tail in so it stays where it should, at the back..

Deck

Standard

Its relatively rolled on this board, the goal being a low rail, at paddling speed, the water rushes over the rail, as the rail is submerged below the water line, this creates more stability, because the board cant bob around without having to lift the water with it.. While stationary not so effective…

Fins

5 fins…

Thruster all day long for top to bottom surfing, throw in the Quads when the drops are late and its more down the line, or your wanting to hold the high line with more speed… 

Final Statement

A high performance SUP suited to juicy overhead waves with punch, for Advanced to Pro riders…

I wouldn’t recommend this board for everyone, our retailers don’t carry a lot of these because it’s a very specific board for advanced riders in particular conditions.. We have a range of boards that you would find in stock to suit your more average SUP rider..
