The Puddle Jumper HP Diamond Series Carbon Wrap is a souped up, slimmed down, refined Puddle Jumper. It features a pulled in nose with the wide point brought back, and a narrower, pulled in tail block. The new outline enables the PJHP to surf even more like a normal board. A very playful board that’s easy to paddle and ride yet still allows more radical and quick turns than all the other PJ models. It’s easy on the eyes, sleek and re ned under the arm, and its smooth foiled lines deceptively hide its significant volume – with built-in speed to spare. Stand on the tail of this thing and simply go to town, up and down, round and round, like you have a motor in small surf. The tail, with its foiled rails and deep vee, holds in and give confidence at high speeds. The overall flat rocker, generous width, and deep central concave generate small wave squirt like you would expect from a Puddle jumper. The Puddle Jumper HP can take the domesticated gentleman into a realm thought long gone. Speed, with quickness, fast but loose, precise but playful. If you are one of the thousands of surfers who have enjoyed one of the Puddle Jumper series, the PJHP allows you to take your small wave surfing to the next level.
Diamond Series Carbon Wrap
Carbon Wrap is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the need for a standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-defines the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled.
Ultra-light Aero Blank EPS cores are ‘wrapped’ with strategically positioned diamond series carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins. The all new Diamond edition Carbon Wrap has seen decrease in Carbon Fibre strands visible through the tape, giving it minimal look. This minimal look has not compromised strength as the missing carbon has been replaced with an extra strong XS glass that has very strong tensile strength along with much improved flex characteristics. The updated reinforcing element allows for more overall flex resulting in better performance. Combined with the new Flex2Volume program, Diamond Edition Carbon Wrap will have an enhanced energy that can be tailored to volume in each board.
Until now, flex patterns in surfboards have had a ‘one flex fits all’ approach. All boards have been made with one flex strength, regardless of the size of the board, or the rider. With the advent of Flex2Volume, we are now able to offer different flex patterns that correspond to the volume of the board, vastly increasing performance. Smaller boards will feature a more forgiving flex pattern and larger boards will have more reinforced carbon on the deck to suit the larger rider.
