The Black Sheep is a morph of a Rocket up front paired with a Sub Scorcher tail rocker. Fun like the original Rocket, but way better in smaller surf.
Black Sheep Tech Specs:
• Super Swallow with Tri/Quad 5-Fin set up
What if we combined two of our most popular designs? Put a Sub-Scorcher tail on the Rockets nose? We did just that, and what came out is the driviest, on- rail carving, hybrid stub we have ever made. Featuring the exact nose outline, rocker and foil that made the Rocket’s so fast, smashed together with the Sub-Scorcher’s wide tailed, flat rocker to vee combo. The rear outline and rocker both become straighter than the Rocket, allowing this board to fly across flat gutless waves in a way the Rocket couldn’t for many surfers. The vee lends control and smooth rail-to-rail transitions, and “Super Swallow” tail allows some bleeding off of speed and adds bite, encouraging hard turning.
For any one who wished the Rocket was easier to ride in junky waves, but didn’t want to add volume or go to a more “grovel” board design, this is your answer. Designed with double concave, ”exacta deck” (first used in our Placebo line a few years back) in the tail, to mimic that “magic board”, locked in feeling for your back foot.
