The Generation is the ultimate one board quiver and subsequently is our best-selling model, with Supboarder Magazine claiming that “every paddler needs a board like the Generation”.
A true 3in1, the Generation offers so much to all types of riders and conditions. Whether you’re a weekend warrior racer that’s after speed, or prefer exploring with friends and carrying gear, or you eventually want to go into the waves and surf, the Generation does it all.
The Generation packs so much value and offers a lot of progression in one board, meaning you can choose to do racing, touring or surfing as your skill level progresses.
The narrow nose makes it fast and efficient, while the parallel outline gives you solid stability and comfort, moving to a narrower tail which is easy to turn and maneuver in the waves.
The 14’0” models are the preferred option if you want faster top speeds for racing and paddling longer distances when touring.
THE GO TO 3 IN 1 BOARD; TOURING, RACING, SURFING
1.FCS Insert – On the nose allows you mount accessories such as a phone GPS, navigation light or camera.
2.Round Vee – Helps lift the board so you can accelerate faster and maintain a higher top speed. It also floats over chop smoothly, making it versatile to handle all conditions.
3.Bungee Tie Down – Directly in front of the standing area make it convenient and accessible for you to store any gear when touring and cruising.
4.Recessed Pad – Lowers your center of gravity for greater comfort and stability. The flat deck makes it easy for you to move freely around when trimming the board and surfing on the tail.
5.Deep Double Concave -Supports the round Vee with stability directly under foot.
6.2-in-1 Shoulder Carry Strap and Paddle Holder – The Carry Strap comes included with Blue Carbon. It can also be purchased aftermarket for Lite Tech and Rhino
7.Outline – Fairly parallel outline gives you a very a predictable and controlled glide. The nose gives you fast acceleration when sprinting as it floats on top of the water. The tail narrows into a square shape, allowing you to have very responsive turning in the surf and fast buoy turns.
8.Rail Tuck Edge – The rails are round to avoid you catching the nose, sharpening at the middle to create a stable platform, through to sharp edge at the tail to carve in surf.
9.Gradual Nose Kick – Helps stop the board from diving in surf and downwind, as well as lifting over chop upwind. The curved rocker is fast on flats, smooth in the surf and very capable in chop.
10.Rail Thickness – Maintained throughout the entire profile of the board, giving you a balanced glide from nose to tail. The Generation is thinner than a Touring and Race board, making it lighter to maneuver and easier to carry.
11.230 Center Fin – Provides good straight-line tracking and is easy to buoy turn when racing. A thruster set up with the 5.5” side fins proved the best combination for added drive and control so you can turn the board with ease in surf. Comes only Blue Carbon. Lite Tech Wave and Rhino come with a different fin
