Scorch-it Tech Specs:
• Tri/Quad 5 Fin setup
What if we take Sub-Scorcher’s front half (rocker, outline and foil) with the Rockets back half (but with a more conservative rocker) and then ran a deep single channel out the tail? …You get The “Scorch-It”. Although they have faded in popularity, channel bottoms add bite, create drive through turns and bring explosive, exhilarating and powerful qualities to surfing. With all the creativity in surfboards these days, it seemed right to combine the locked in, powerful, driving sensation of classic tail channels with post modern hybrid designs of today.
The “Scorch-It” has a moderate tail rocker for glide, but the deep single channel through the tail (which both adds grip and an afterburner like thrust out of turns) lets the water release out the tail and actually increases the rocker without sacrificing any drive.
• High overall volume for easy wave catching and crowd negotiating.
• Tight radius, locked in pocket carves without drift.
• Shorter/quicker turns and go more vertical in dumpy shore break than the “Sub”.
• Drive through long arcs, skate across mush and hold in at high speeds.
Ride as a Thruster, or experiment with a 5 fin custom convertible about the same length as a Sub or 2″ longer than a Rocket.
