FAST AND FORGIVING FOR THE MOST PROGRESSIVE APPROACH POSSIBLE IN EVERYDAY WAVES
Julian Wilsonʼs AIR 17 is a specially designed model that Julian and JS have been working on since 2013. Julian is now riding boards that aren’t like anybody else’s – he’s taken design theories and thought processes and run with them. Having such a polished, technical surfer who is incredibly knowledgeable on board design proved invaluable time and time again while designing the AIR 17.
One of the key elements to this new model is a larger sweet spot through the central part of the board. JS have also made the AIR 17 thicker under the front foot by redistributing the foam slightly forward, with a deeper single to double concave than the Monsta allowing you to enjoy quick drive and acceleration right from take oﬀ. The overall combination of softer rails, a ﬂatter rocker through the middle (which allows it that larger sweet spot), deeper concaves and extra curve in the nose and tail make a PERFORMER SERIES model that will give you a fast and forgiving ride.
AIR 17 was built to work for all types of surfers in all types of conditions – if you want to find as much speed as possible in the waves you surf every day, from weak onshore rubbish to overhead perfection, then this is the board that will take you to the next level.
AIR17 is designed for a wide range of surfers in an array of different conditions – from small, weak surf to the days we all dream about.
Rocker: - One of the key elements to the AIR17 working so well is its rocker – tailored to suit Julian’s surfing in a wide range of waves. A flatter rocker extending through the middle of the board (particularly under front foot) allows a nice sweet spot to add forgiveness and ease of generating speed, while late curve in the nose and tail provides an ideal balance of release and manoeuvrability.
Fin Setup: - AIR17 comes stock as a thruster. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
Glassing Specs: - AIR17 is glassed standard with 4 x 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)
Rail Type: - AIR17 has medium full rails, helping to reduce catch from chop or soft sections.
AIR17 features a single concave starting at the nose, which runs into a double concave starting in front of the fins. Compared to other PERFORMER SERIES models like the Monsta, concave on the AIR17 is slightly deeper, particularly through the fins, providing more lift. Overall, this bottom contour allows for easy maneuverability while still giving the board as much control as possible.
