Created for the annualStab HighWaco air comps, this model is a variation on the standardNoa Model.
Never one to over-complicate things, Noa's original brief was brief...
"Maybe a 5’10” and a 5’11”, that will do."
We got to work tweaking his base model with a few things in mind; he'd need to gain speed quickly, then keep that momentum before being able to launch off the end section as high as possible into a stable landing.
We condensed Noa’s day to day 6’0” down to a 5’10” adding 1/4” of width, as well as pushing out the nose and tail area to keep the outline drivey when put on a rail.
A lower nose entry rocker allows for rapid speed on take-off, and has just enough tail rocker to give pop and release.
We pumped in some extra thickness at the chest area, keeping the deck fairly rolled to avoid a chunky rail.
"Not just for the pool, Noa and the team have been loving this model in the ocean, especially when the waves are on the weaker side."
This model is typically ridden as a squash tail, but alternately is offered as a round tail, adding another element of hold and control at higher speeds.
Stock Dimensions As a guide, The Noa Chlorine is to be ridden around 2 - 3 inches shorter than your good wave performance board and / or 2 - 3 inches longer than your Twinny or fish style.
