PUDDLE JUMPER HP C4
The Puddle Jumper HP 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.
After more than two years of development and testing, we are proud to announce the launch of C4 composite construction. The continuing evolution of integrating all natural, fully renewable and sustainable Cork, into a durable and lightweight, high-performance custom surfboard construction. Developed with Drew Baggett, C4 is built by wrapping a 1.5lb EPS foam core with full deck 1.5mm Cork. The Cork deck serves as a performance enhancing dampener, and also dramatically increases strength. By layering glass both between the Cork and the EPS core, as well wrapping over the cork and around the rails, we create a “sandwich” with incredible impact and impressive tensile strength and durability, while remaining light weight. Cork is a natural dampener which smooths out the ride of an EPS surfboard. Cork settles down vibrations and chatter, so prevalent in most EPS surfboards. Its spreads, and smooths out surface chatter, to provide a soothing glide. The Cork deck is like a suspension system on windy days, and in larger surf and variable conditions, which so commonly create chaos and unpredictable performance in “epoxy” or EPS surfboards. The bottom is built layering multiple layers of 4oz fiberglass, the final layer being a wrap of “D” Glass. Both the top and bottom feature fused carbon fiber, exo-skeletal stringers. The Fused Carbon adds strength, and provides pop, bringing a responsive, rapid spring back to the flex. C4 boards are designed to withstand a barrage of typical daily damage, while remaining light, lively and energetic under foot, and providing long lasting, durable and high-performance fun.
