Rocket Redux

What= What this model is about


Who- The Rocket Redux is ideal for a variety of skill level. Those newer to surfing will be able to ride a longer in length Rocket Redux to compensate for their budding fundamentals. Where intermediate to advanced surfers will enjoy riding this model at a shorter length than their “traditional shortboards” as to maximize the board’s performance. 


When- This model was ideally made with average conditions in mind. Anything from thigh to chest high is the norm, however, the Rocket Redux can be ridden in larger surf. The model’s larger surf abilities were made evident in …Lost’s video “5’5 Redux” where the Rocket held the stage for most of the film. 


What- Expect all of your favorite attributes from the original Rocket to be found in the Rocket Redux; low flat and fast entry rocker, an aggressive flip in the tail and rail rocker, a wide outline and tail, and the iconic hooked diamond “Rocket” tail.  The improvements come in as refined rail curves and cleaned up rail lines to add extra horsepower to this Rocket. Expect this combination to paddle well, get one into waves early, drive down the line with power and speed, while still providing hold and control when laying it on rail. It is at home flicking the tail or driving off the rear foot for powerful rail carves.

“Before mass media marketeers played Hypto-Crypto with your mind, making you believe in the Sci-Fi that Ghosts and Monstas were more than just Average Joes, Diving through Dumpsters along the Seaside... there was The ROCKET!... and we ain’t talking 9 or Wide.  Before Instagram and the endless charade of social media surfboard model marketing melted our minds, real word of mouth made one little board iconic throughout the surfing world…. The ROCKET. "


Birthed from a broken blank and the brains of Beschen (Shane) and Budroe, the original Rocket was to simply be a board for baby Beschen (Noah) to learn on.


Once ridden by Shane, everything changed, and he felt compelled to bring us his fabulous find to be refined.  Happy accidents have been a staple of surfboard progression, since the beginning.  As we started fine tuning and building them for the boys, we knew were had something special.  Fast forward a year, and the 2009 video release of “5’5 Redux”.  The ROCKET was a star of the show, ridden by a parade of guest rippers cutting loose on the little weapon.  From Bros to Pros, The ROCKET was soon a global hit, being enjoyed by surfers of all shapes, sizes and skill sets.  Now, more than a decade after its initial release, the ROCKET returns.  A re-incarnated Redux for the new generation to enjoy another run of fun… The ROCKET REDUX


We’ve strived to retain all the original ROCKET design details and magic:

The extremely low and fast entry rocker, counterbalanced by a hyper-extended tail curve, for instantaneous down the line drive and playfully precise turning.  The deepest of concaves, created by a straight centerline stringer and a curvaceous rail rocker lends lift and liveliness.  The wide tail and parallel, bullet like, outline provides plenty of speed and hold. The hooked diamond “Rocket” tail adds bite and hold in firm, rear footed carves.

While the ROCKET REDUX stays true to the original ROCKET, to bring a serious performance boost we’ve:

 Refined and cleaned curves, made the rails a bit more refined, and updated some details just enough to keep up with the things we've learned since.
