This board has drawn influence from the past, present and future.
The Bullet template is wider that the average board these days making it perfect for those with a few extra KG's or just surfing every day type of waves. The wide-point sits right on the elbows, making it easy to spin on and perfect for driving off your bottom turns. Bullet used this shape when he won the infamous '97 Pipe contest, so its guaranteed to work when the waves are pumping too.
This Model uses the PP Kinetic Core combined with the ISS Stringer system. This core is pretty much the industry staple for year-round use, in particular warmer climates or water temperatures. It is durable and light-weight providing the ultimate in memory and projection. Combined with the ISS you can use different flex stringers to suit water temps or wave conditions.
Finally, this board has 3 new features exclusive to Stealth designed to work in conjunction for the perfect balance between speed, harmony and drive.
Vax Trax Rails – A graduated concave on the bottom rail, starting in the mid-section and becoming more prominent through the tail section of the board. The steepness of the rail combined with the curve allows a greater angle to drive off, decreasing the loss of speed. It allows you to hold a higher line on the wave face, so you now have the tool to run higher, faster lines and steeper angles.
Transitional Hull Channels – Similarly to the Vax Trax rails, these start about 18 inches from the tail of the board (almost double the length of traditional channels). Being longer in length with extremely slight graduation, means these channels keep harmony and flow, allowing water to enter and exit cleanly with minimal disturbance. To sum it up simply, they provide better speed, drive and control.
Chisel Tail – This tail shape also provides the looseness and responsiveness of a crescent tail, however increases planing surface area, similarly to the benefits of a bat tail. The squarer pegs, are designed to ensure maximum efficiency of the water flow created from the graduated hull channels, and complete the combination between these and the Vax Trax rails. This helps create lift and control, especially when driving off your hips. Extra lift enables easy and smooth rail to rail transitions.
