JETPILOT FLYING DUTCHMAN 4'8" BLUE
This board flies, hence the name Flying Dutchman. The "pedal" and "brake" are easy to control and the board generates speed quickly. With a clean, progressive outline curve and square tail, the Flying Dutchman snaps in the pocket and holds the rail nicely, offering stability for the less seasoned riders looking to step up to the next level of performance. A traditional surfboard tint with subtle graphics paired with an Innegra/carbon fiber tail reinforcement complete Flying Dutchman’s premium appearance. The versatile 5-fin option can be ridden as a single fin, twin fin, thruster, or quad setup.
Dimensions: Length 4'8" (142 cm), Width 22.5" (57 cm), Thickness 2" (5 cm), Volume 26.3 Liters
The 4'8" caters to wake surfers with a bigger frame and will reasonably float riders up to 250 lbs.
The square tail is highly responsive on pocket snaps and provides the surface area needed to get speed and lift outside of the pocket.
A blended rail is a variation between between a full and hard rail. This type of rail is a good universal option that is stable and user friendly but still allows for performance maneuvers.
The five fin setup offers options for every rider on the boat. You can set the board up as a twin fin, thruster or quad. Twin fin will be loose and playful. The thruster (3 fin) setup will generate good speed with more stability than the twin fin. A quad (4 fin) setup is all about speed, allowing you to pump and generate speed using the fins. We do not recommend using all five fins at the same time as it will produce too much drag.
CUSTOM JETPILOT HONEYCOMB FIBERGLASS FINS
Honeycomb figerglass is strong and light, reducing weight while maintaining flex. The Flying Dutchman includes 2 outside 4.3" fins, 2 inside 3.7", and a 4.3" center fin. Make sure you look at the foil on each fin when you insert them in the fin box. The inside of the fin should be flat.
3 PIECE EMBOSSED GRIP TAIL TRACTION PAD
The EVA tail pad has a 4mm center arch that provides excellent grip and comfort. The 3cm vert wedge tail kick keeps the back foot from slipping off the board.
2 PIECE EVA FRONT TRACTION PAD
The front traction pad is included with the board but not applied. Some surfer's prefer using wax on the deck for optimal movement and traction. This gives users the option of the traditional wax style or standard eva padding.
