Simmer’s Ground Swell Design has quickly become our team´s all time favorite wave board. The Flywave has a solid, well proven big wave heritage with a rocker adapted from Kai Katchadourian's Peahi board. Taking this super fast and stable rocker into a curvier and shorter outline, then adding a winger swallow tail that ends close to your back foot, we then tuned the performance of the board to also fit the modern and slashy style of World Cup prodigy Marc Paré. The result is a board that provides excellent agility and lets the rider adapt the turning radius to any type of wave. The control and speed down the line is retained even in the biggest and fastest of waves.
An extremely efficient rocker with low-drag entry gets the Flywave up and moving with only the slightest gust, increasing both it’s ability for jumping as well the ability to catch more waves in lighter winds. Combining this rocker with a double concave V bottom creates a fast and smooth rail to rail performance as well as excellent control at speed or in messy conditions, whether going for big jumps or blasting down the line in waves. The Winger Swallow tail design has a straight edge outline behind the winger, which adds considerable grip and stability in powerful top turns.
The Flywave can easily adapt to different turning and riding styles, it can be ridden in hollow sections of small waves with quick aerial rotations, as well as perform in longer drawn out turns in much bigger surf where you need to trust the rails with your life.
All 2020 boards feature a hot-coat paint finish. This process combines the colour pigment with the outer layer of a hard epoxy gel coat, this improves the board colour longevity, making it almost impossible to stratch off, it produces an extremely UV-resistant coating that ensures the boards colour resists fading in strong sunlight, all of this whilst saving weight by replacing the base coat paint, and two layers of top coat paint
The Electric Flex Technology
Our layup, construction, and reinforcement are all placed in where user needs and they all work in together to create the optimal stiffness to weight ration. The construction moves with you, rather and against you, which makes the board feel more lively in every movement. We call this technology Electric Flex. For our wave boards we use 45 degree carbon layup for maximum the strength and flex and for our flatwater boards we use 30 degree carbon layup for more vertical strength. Basically, flex and stiffness where its needed. The main features of the construction is the PVC Sandwich stringer. This is the spine of the board which absorbs and distributes the force from impacts throughout the boards entire construction. This eliminates unnecessary breakage as stress is shared between the entire hull, creating a much more durable construction. The stringer also helps to maintain the rocker curve during manoeuvres.
STANDARD FIN SETUP // QUAD
Equipped with a quad fin setup, the Flywave G4 rides with more grip and control at higher wave riding speeds. The power of the fin cluster acts further forward, which drives the front rail into the water and gives the board added control in drawn out turns. At the same time, the shorter depth of the two rear fins makes it easier to set the rail at high speeds which means that the board feels more responsive in fast side shore or cross offshore conditions and in any situations where containment of speed trumps production of drive.
ALTERNATIV FIN SETUP // TRI
On the wave, the Tri Fin setup will give you the best possible projection and drive in turns, assisting the sailor in drawing aggressive turns in fast clean waves as well as in keeping speed through the bottom turn in less powerful waves. The Tri Fin setup will provide early planing, great upwind tracking and ease of sailing while still providing a insanely tight turning radius. Versatile and snappy with a dependable reliability are the main characteristics of this setup.
