Birthed from Matt Biolos and the brains of Shane Beschen & Noah Budroe, the original Rocket was one of those happy accidents that have been a staple of surfboard progression since the beginning. Matt Biolos started fine tuning and building Rockets for his team riders & friends, as he knew they were onto something special.
The Rocket was always a star of the iconic lost surf movies, ridden by a parade of guest rippers cutting loose on this little weapon of a board. 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.
Matt Biolos has 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 almost instantaneous down the line drive and playfully precise turning.The deepest of concaves, created by a straight center line stringer and a curvy rail rocker lends lift and liveliness. The wide tail and parallel 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, it brings a serious performance boost. Refined and cleaned curves, rails and updated details just enough to keep up with the all the things Matt Biolos & his team have learned since the original Rocket .
Fast, precise, playful and just plain fun, the Rocket Redux is fast paddling, easy to ride every day, no need to stress about finding a good wave type board for everyone.
