This is the new Kanoa Igarashi pro model for small to medium waves. Kanoa helped Japan to win the gold medal on the ISA games riding his prototype in very small conditions. This design was based on the original Disco Inferno squash.
The aim was to add more area to the nose and create a bump squash on the outline for easier tight turning. We increased the nose thickness, pushing the volume forward and keeping the same rocker and concaves as the original Disco Inferno. This board glides through flat sections and it can easily turn in the tighter sections of the wave, making a new go to board for all QS warriors.
Single to double concave to generate speed in flatter sections.
Medium entry rocker for instant speed and easy planing, flat exit rocker to hold turns and maintain speed.
Neutral medium rails for an all round surfing.
More area to the nose and a bump squash on the outline for easier tight turning. Increased nose thickness pushing the volume forward and kept the same rocker and concaves of the original disco inferno.
Thruster Futures or FCS2 for ripping.
PU construction by Euroglass. The “P” gets its name from both the resin and the foam: polyester resin and the “U” comes from polyurethane foam . PU is the traditional surfboard construction since foam core surfboards were invented. It is still the most widely used construction method today. PU is often incorrectly referred to as “fiberglass” construction – the reason this is incorrect is because the same exact fiberglass cloth is used in both PU and Epoxy construction types, it’s the foam core and resin that soaks into the fiberglass cloth (and foam) that differ. While PU construction is generally slightly heavier and isn’t quite as strong as Epoxy construction, it tends to have a more reliable and predictable feeling whilst surfing. This is due primarily to a slower flex pattern and denser foam than epoxy construction, which basically causes less “surprises” and more predictability while surfing, especially when making hard or sharp turns. PU construction tends to be more naturally conducive to color work, especially translucent resin tints. PU is also a bit less sensitive to water infiltration and heat than epoxy construction.
