The Astro Pop is designed to give you some extra spark and easy paddle in weaker, slower waves, while still keeping a performance board that is super-fun to ride in good surf.
Built off of the Astro, the retro fish we¬¨‚Ä†¬¨‚à´ve been making for years, the Astro Pop has a more pulled-in nose and tail, with a little wing to help pull in the last 4 inches of the tail which creates a lot of curve in the outline, adding maneuverability without sacrificing any speed. The bottom has a deep double concave running through to vee off the tail which makes the board get up on top of the water even in slower, weaker waves yet still easily tip over onto the rail at high speeds.
A mild beak helps keep the thickness up into the nose, but it¬¨‚Ä†¬¨‚à´s not overly chunky, with easy paddling aided by the flatter entry rocker. We recommend the Astro Pop as a quad for speed, but it comes stock with a 5-fin setup to maximize versatility.
Ride it short as you want and about 3‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ñ‚àö√´4¬¨‚Ä†¬¨‚à´¬¨‚Ä†¬¨‚à´ to 1¬¨‚Ä†¬¨‚à´¬¨‚Ä†¬¨‚à´ wider, with a thickness that gives you a bit more volume than your everyday shortboard.
