The Wave THC (THruster Concave)

Perfect for the wavesailor looking to push to the next level

The wave THC has been our pure multi fin design for the past few years and continues to evolve. Shaped for sailors that want to push their wavesailing to another level, this board offers great wave riding potential on almost any day there’s wind and swell.

Ideal for everyday home conditions, the THC really makes the most of your time on the water. Take it on a road trip to one of those epic destinations though, and you’ll be grinning from ear to ear as the THC continues to deliver.

  • Speed & Jumping 90%
thruster waveboard fin set up

The THC’s compact shape and full, heavily tucked rails up front, combine with surf perfected fin angles mean turns can be initiated anywhere, anytime. The new faster rocker couples with a curvier outline, making for an alive, fast to accelerate between manoeuvres, beautifully controllable shape. Ridden to Victory at the Taranaki Wave Classic 2014

Subtle concave bottom shapes and rocker are dynamically engineered, with the different sized models having a tweaked version for a harmonious combination of speed and manoeuvrability. While on deck the fin/strap positioning and rounded squash tail geometry gives really tight snappy turns.

The THC maximises your time and fun in the waves and is designed to be ridden as a thruster.

CA-T Series Fins

New for 2015 – we introduced the CA-T thruster fin series. Specifically designed to each board, these fins are a perfect match for your ride. With amazing holding power that lets you keep loading up the fins, the adjustability of the thruster fin set up allows you to dial in the looseness and release to suit.

Fins sets are supplied with your board order at our suggested sizes – for larger or smaller riders we can adjust the supplied sizing, just ask!

Tech Construction

Tech Construction is our highly tested and proven gold standard. A select density eps core is high pressure vacuum wrapped in a PVC shell in temperature controlled conditions for superior strength and bond. This is then vacuum laminated top and bottom with a combination of leading edge composite materials – S Glass, Carbon Fibre and select epoxy resins.

The end result is an ultimate combination of high quality materials and price to performance balance.

Pro Construction

Pro-or-Standard-Model-Choose-your-colour Better than the best. With Pro Construction you’ll get the same base construction, but vacuum laminated with even more advanced fibre composites – Double Bias carbon, Innegra, S glass and selected epoxy resin. The board specific lay up is customised to the board and you, and hand finished to perfection.

The result is a seemingly impossible strength to weight ratio, with up to .5 kg weight saving for unparalleled performance, and an incredibly strong board.
