The SX is is the ultimate small wave, high performance machine.. It will get you going top to bottom and blowing the tail out in places that you never though was possible!  

HOW DID THE SX01 GET ITS NAME??

If you are familiar with the SUNOVA range you will notice the name SX01 doesn't really fit in with the theme.. 

The SX01 basically came to be a part of the new range as a complete accident, in the tireless pursuit for the perfect board all manufactures worldwide go through tireless amounts of prototypes and testing.. Our team riders were after a board with the highest performance for smaller waves.. We made a few protos for some of our development team,  without names just, just codes that we could use in our system to identify boards.. Before we knew it there was overwhelming response from out team and they loved the new SX01, so before we had a chance to figure out a name, we were swamped with people wanting them, so the name ended up sticking.. That's how the SX01 become a part of the SUNOVA range..

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

A high performance, small wave step down...

Wave type ||| size it's working best

Small waves..  ||| From just under waist high up to head and a half, softer waves..

Maneuvers it does best

Vert reos and powered up pocket snaps, general high performance surfing…

Skill level it's best for

Advanced to Pro..

Paddle power

Above Average

What you thought of when you designed it?

Was getting a lot of requests for a higher volume high performance small wave board, the tail rocker is standard high performance short board, with a slightly flatter nose entry, so you're not pushing water on low speed take offs, the generously curved outline has a tight turning circle, the hard edges for release and  tail area offers plenty of drive off the back foot, the subtle hip flyer into rounded pin give a nice tight hook to the back foot turns..

What is possibly compromises on then?

Not really any  compromises, great performance small wave board, just make sure you ride it in the right conditions, if its overpowered it will get slippery and out of control at speed…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Curvy, subtle hip flyer rounded pin…

A look at the overall plan shape and you see an outline that has a relatively tight arc nose to tail, plus the added flyer round pin, so from either the first pump or the first bottom turn the board has great sensitivity and initiates turns instantly, has a very free easy pump action and goes top to bottom effortlessly, the hip flyer, adds an instant response as your weight transitions onto the back foot , so bottom turns can be squared off really tight allowing a more vertical approach to the lip with a super tight hook under the lip, the round pin allows it to be surfed tight while still keeping the rail engaged, meaning tight on rail power surfing, all packaged into slightly more area so it carries good in low power situations..

Rails

Full boxy with harder bottom edges in the tail that carry forward slightly…

The fuller rails offer a different way to get speed on the take off, if the waves are softer, you bury the inside rail on the first pump, as the rail pops out, you can use this momentum to get the other rail in and continue with a rhythmic pumping action.. The harder edges have good release, so the board really wants to skate along fast on top of the water.. The boxiness of the rail allows really aggressive driving front foot cutbacks with less chance of bogging the rail.

Rocker

Full performance tail rocker, with a slightly flatter nose entry…

With this amount of rocker, the board stays nice and loose, super sensitive and fits into tight pockets, allowing you to attack sections at speed, the slightly flatter nose carries onto small waves better without pushing water ..

Bottom

Single concave..

The concave helps the inside rail engage earlier, initiating turns faster, while also directing water off the outside rail in a downward direction, applying Newtons 3rd law of physics.

Deck

Standard

Deck roll is about standard, the board has some added beef which carries to the rail...

Fins

Thruster

For top to bottom surfing the thruster will always be the better option..

Final Statement

A good high performance board that allows you to tear the bags out of a small wave.. Like the Nitro and Clone, this board is recommended for more advanced surfers…
