PATRIK Wave Boards

PD Wave


Please choose an option:




The Trailer Wave concept changed the way we think about design and has carved a path that influences every PATRIK wave board. Only few shapers are experienced in this new style while most others still sacrifice critical characteristics such as early planing, acceleration and speed to accomodate that one choosen fin set up. To ensure this isn't the case with our boards, all PATRIK wave shapes are designed independently of the fin set up. This allows a rider to select a model according to their body size and riding level, then fine tune it with the fins to fit their particular surfing style and the prevailing conditions.

Many people understand that smaller and/or lighter riders tend to have smaller feet and/or a lighter/lower leverage point and therefore they prefer narrower tails and they can also handle shorter boards. Taller and/or heavier riders with bigger feet and/or longer legs have a higher/heavier leverage point and tend to prefer a bit of extra board length and tail width to support their weight and power on the tail.

A similar principle also applies to sailing level. Pro's who drive their turns over the front foot and steer with the back, tend to opt for shorter shapes so they can carve short radiuses and close the turn over the narrow tail. Novice wave riders focus more on their back foot and need added width in the tail to support the additional force they exert over the tail so they don't lose too much speed during the turn. A little bit of additional length also helps novices to float around and tackle any white water.

Analysis of the above leads us to the conclusion that there is a need for two board shapes. One that is shorter with a narrower tail and another with a bit of extra length and more width in the tail. Both board shapes can be designed to an optimum performance ratio between early planing, acceleration, speed and turning ability regardless of the fin setup. With the trailer fin box arrangement of 3x 8" US boxes, the fin setup can be adapted to suit the conditions and an individual's riding style.

The majority of multi fin boards on the market today have very small fin boxes with minimal room for adjustment and this, combined with the board shape, means that each model has a very narrow band of conditions that it performs well in. Even if you're armed with plenty of fins, lots of time and knowledge, the boards will still be limited in their range of use and the only solution to cover a greater range of conditions will be to buy more boards. However, this is not true with our boards. Over the past couple of years, we have proven that there is no other fin box arrangement that allows for as many fin setups and allows for them to be setup and fine tuned as easily and quickly as with our versatile 3 fin box arrangement.

TrailerWave: Shorter with a narrower tail and a 3x US-box setup

TrailerWaveWide: Increased length with a wider tail and a 3x US-box setup

WaveOne: Identical shape to TrailerWaveWide, but with a single fin setup

Construction

A wave board is often used in stronger winds and/or wave conditions where it is normal to jump and crash. When landing jumps, the board will be exposed to high stress loads on both the deck and bottom. The most flexible and stress load resistant material to build a suitable board with would be pure glass, but this is less than ideal in terms of impact resistance - just look at used surfboards where dings, cracks and holes are standard. It's inevitable that a wave board will experience some form of impact from a hard object - rig, rider or reef - at some point and this is where Kevlar excels. A pure carbon construction is too stiff for a smooth wave ride and just like pure glass, it is not the most impact resistant material. Kevlar is the right material to prevent damage from impact, but it is too soft to resist the stress load and so a full Kevlar construction would collapse within a short period of time. Our experience shows that a Carbon/Kevlar combination works best for the range of use of a wave board. With a 50% Carbon part the board is still flexible, but strong enough to resist the stress load, and the 50% Kevlar gives the resistance required to withstand impacts.

Shape Details

Scoop Rocker Line - All -  A balanced curve with zero flat spots throughout the whole bottom has proved its performance over the years. The result is early planing, smooth and controlled turns on the wave and in the gybes, combined with a comfortable ride. 
Outline - TW 75, 78, 85 - A short and modern outline with a narrow tail ensures you will have the most wave riding fun in any conditions, from small messy waves to BIG point breaks! 

Outline - TWW 75, 83, 92, WO 68, 75, 85 - Slightly longer than the Trailer Wave with a wider tail for even earlier planing and added support in the back strap. The wider tail is also more suitable for onshore conditions or even blasting on flat water in strong winds. 

Bottom Shape - All - Slight V in the nose area prevents it catching on upcoming waves/chop. Single concave through the mid section provides lift whilst also giving a cushioning feeling, which is softer to ride and allows it to plane earlier. The sharper centre line is due to a double concave under the footstrap area that lets the board track better and the more negative rails have increased grip in the turns. Flat V in the last 20cm of the tail releases the water quickly and smoothly and minimises turbulence for all performance aspects. 
Deck Shape - TW 72, 78, 85 - Maximum volume provides flotation on light wind days, making the true excitement of wave riding in smooth glassy water possible. Slightly rounded deck shape provides the perfect balance between having grip under the feet for jumping and allowing the toe/heel contact with the board for wave riding. 
Deck Shape - TWW 75, 83, 92, WO 68, 75, 83 - Slightly flater in the deck around the mast track compared to the TW for a more stable platform and similar deck dome to the TW around the strap area to provide the perfect balance between having grip under the feet for jumping and allowing the toe/heel contact with the board for wave riding. 
Rail Shape - TW 72, 78, 85, TWW 75, 83 - Thinner at the nose to reduce weight, running into a harmonic mid section that allows the rail to dig into the water for carved turns when the rider's weight is moved forward and more floaty rails when closing turns and steering the board over the back foot. Sharp, thin rails in the tail for optimum grip in any turn. 
Rail Shape - TWW 92 - Thin at the nose to reduce weight, running into a thicker mid section compared to the smaller sizes to offer a bit more flotation support for heavier guys, ending with a sharp rail in the tail for optimum grip in any turn. 

Inserts - All - A variety of inserts in the front allow riders to alter the angle and position of the footstraps to suit their style and foot size.
