Carbon 7’10″ Jammer

Got a chance to float test the new carbon 7’10″ Jammer SUP with S-rail & “Butt Tail” today…

The white is a sparkly pearlescent eye popper…I call it the “Pearl Jammer”…;-)

This is the most stable under 8′ SUP I have been on to date…paddled nicely, too…easily stroked into a couple of knee high waves…no problemos…new swell is supposed to hit tonight…should be some waves manana…gonna be hard to sleep…especially, if it surfs anything like my other new 8’5″ Jammer…;-)

Mat Surfing

A couple of months ago, at Deb’s urging…we rediscovered how much fun mat surfing is/was, again…more fun than a barrel of monkeys in a banana cream pie factory…;-)

Not that we have ever completely forgotten the thrill we had as kids learning on the old canvas rafts…and, witnessing our friends, George Greenough and Kenny Hughes, totally ripping on their surf mats…

SURF MAT HISTORY:

Developed in 1933, the air filled surf mat was an Australian invention. It predated all of the modern surfboard design and history that we know today.

Krypt is proud to carry on the development of this uniquely Australian surf craft, which is at the cutting edge of high performance surfing, into the 21st century.

The Krypt MT5 Surf Mat is designed by surf mat master Mark Thomson. This 5th generation design is the product of 10 years design experimentation and development, The MT5 sets the standard for advanced fabrics in modern surf mat design and construction.

The MT5 surf mat is made from an ultra thin, lightweight, Hi-Tech military fabric that is incredibly strong and durable. Each surf mat features a self-sealing one-way valve that is unique to Krypt Surf Technology.

In waves that are 1 foot to 10 feet, the Krypt MT5 is a super intuitive and exciting surf mat to ride. It has fantastic grip on the water, which allows for incredible speed, awesome power and extended projection through each turn.

This combination of speed and control makes the MT5 the most advanced production surf mat ever made. This ultra modern surf mat is a high performance surf craft guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time you surf.

The future of surf mats has arrived.

The KRYPT MT5, Surf Mat is now available at our brick & mortar store in Santa Barbara and online

WD Series:

7’11″ WD Wave
Ultra High Performance Wave Ripper

7’11″ x 29.5″ x 4.4″ : 120 liters (Quad +1)

The new 7’11″ WD was developed for lighter and/or more advanced wave rippers. This board is very stable despite it’s extreme maneuverability. It is going to challenge you to go for it, more than you are going to challenge it to give you more. Very fast rocker lines and responsiveness for top to bottom squared off surfing.

8’4″ & 8’6″ WD Wave
High Performance Wave Rippers

8’4″ x 30″ x 4.6″ : 132 liters (Quad +1)
8’6″ x 31″ x 4.6″ : 140 liters (Quad +1)

The 8’4″ & 8’6″ WD were developed for more advanced wave rippers to push the limits of short board paddlesurfing. These boards are very stable with generous volume for their size, and will reward you with extreme maneuverability. Ride them as a quad to get max speed out of them…on bigger days add a StubNub or switch out to tri-fin for more drive. Very fast rocker lines and responsiveness for top to bottom squared off surfing.

8’10″ & 9’2″ WD Wave
High Performance Wave Rippers

8’10″ x 32″ x 4.6″ : 150 liters (Quad +1)
9’2″ x 32″ x 4.6″ : 158 liters (Quad +1
)

The 8’10″ & 9’2″ WD were developed for bigger guys who are more advanced wave riders.
Wardog’s original 8’10″ WD was put into production by Starboard with Wardog’s signature, which he named the “Wide Point”. We have further refined this global best seller and added a slightly longer version to push the limits of short board paddlesurfing. These boards are known for stability with generous volume for their size, and will reward you with extreme maneuverability. Ride them as a quad to get max speed out of them…on bigger days add a StubNub or switch out to tri-fin for more drive. Rips in surf from 2 – 10′. Great travel boards.
Very fast rocker lines and responsiveness for top to bottom squared off surfing.

STOKE SERIES
All Wave Model SUP

9’6″ x 30.5″ x 4.4″ : 150 liters (Quad +1)
9’6″ x 32″ x 4.4″ : 165 liters (Quad +1)
9’6″ x 33.5″ x 4.4″ : 175 liters (Quad +1)

The STOKE model is our #1 all around wave rider for most avg-size riders and is a great airline friendly travel board. We’ve added the Xtra-Wide size for bigger riders who want a smaller board that will surf more like a shortboard. Women especially like this board in our SUPer-Light Carbon construction for improved off water mobility.

MAHALO SERIES
Best All Around SUP

10’ x 30″ x 4.4″ : 160 liters (Quad +1)
10’3″ x 29.5″ x 4.3″ : 165 liters (2 +1)
10’3″ x 31″ x 4.5″ : 175 liters (Quad +1)
10’3″ x 33″ x 4.5″ : 185 liters (Quad +1)

The MAHALO is a very refined all around SUP that excels as both a wave rider with great glide and stability…as well as all water paddler. The two widest sizes were designed for bigger riders who want a maneuverable wave board and/or even women paddlers that want more stability for paddling with their children and/or dogs. The new Mahalo Shaka is a responsive design with paddle power.

ONE WORLD SERIES

All Around Cruiser

11’1″ x 30″ x 4.6″ : 200 liters (2 +1)
11’1″ x 32″ x 4.6″ : 215 liters (2 +1)

The name says it all: ONE WORLD. One board that ANYONE can ride ANYWHERE in the world…the ONE WORLD is the truest execution of an “all waters” SUP on this water planet…arguably, the best all-around SUP on the market. ONE BOARD…ONE PADDLE…ONE WORLD.
The board has incredible glide for an 11’1″ board, better than other company’s 12’6″ racers…and, it can ride waves from 2′ – 20′.

ONE WORLD SURFARI
Coastal Surfing Cruiser

11’11″ x 31″ x 4.6″ : 225 liters (2 +1)

The ONE WORLD SURFARI is an excellent choice for fitness paddling and coastal touring/surf. Maximum glide and speed with very refined, soulful, longboard style wave riding characteristics…capable of surfing massive walls of moving water if you are…and, has greater glide and stability than many canoe nose SUP’s on the market…and, is way funner!

HAMMER SERIES
All Around SUP

7’11″ x 31″ x 4.4″ : 132 liters (Quad +1)
8’5″ x 31″ x 4.4″ : 140 liters (Quad +1)
8’11″ x 31″ x 4.4″ : 148 liters (Quad +1)
9’5″ x 31″ x 4.4″ : 160 liters (Quad +1)
9’5″ x 33″ x 4.6″ : 178 liters (Quad +1)
10’ x 31″ x 4.4″ : 170 liters (Quad +1)
10’3″ x 32″ x 4.4″ : 188 liters (Quad +1)
10’6″ x 33″ x 4.4″ : 198 liters (Quad +1)

The Hammer has become a smash hit! As close to the “Holy Grail” of the ultimate one board all around all water solution as has existed.

100% designed to maximize surfing the waves wherever you find them.

The Hammer has 3 distinct riding areas…it speeds up when you move into the nose area for extra long nose rides…it can be trimmed from the middle while turning…and, it rips turns off the tail like a short board. Especially, with our custom fin sets.

Because of it’s incredible stability…phenomenal glide…and, optimized volume distribution…etc…you can ride it around 8″ to 1′ shorter than you normally would…which helps tremendously in maneuverability and off-water mobility. Available in custom sizes.
