The Summer Series models are JS's most current and reputable small wave models. The Summer series commits itself to gaining the most out of small to average conditions allowing more days in the water.
JS has taken all the best components of the Matrix, added some area to the nose, a smoother outline, added new tail shape and created the Dropped Swallow
This model will have you flying across any section in that 1-2 foot range. One of the main talking points is the new tail shape; the sawn off effect offers all of the drive and leverage points that you can expect from a square tail, while the semi-swallow still allows positive rail to rail transitions. The best combination from 2 proven tail shapes.
THE CARBON! - It's not all about looks, the carbon is all about performance. Carbon has become a recognized design feature with many of the worlds top surfers using it; and like everything it can always be made better. So that's what JS did; After many test variations we have pinpointed the perfect balance of flex and strength through very precise positioning and quantity of carbon strands. Tail carbon is continued all the way to the drop swallow to ensure the subtle, but crucial tail curve does not flatten out in turns - allowing for responsive and consistent tail release.
RAIL TYPE - Drop Swallow has a medium to full rail shape that allows for extra forgiveness.
WAVE HEIGHT - Depending on fins and conditions, Drop Swallow is designed to perform best in average to quality conditions from 0 - 3 feet.
FIN TYPE - Drop Swallow comes stock with 5 plug FCS set up to accommodate all types of conditions. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
GLASSING - Drop Swallow comes with Single 4 oz bottom x double layer 4 oz deck + carbon patched tail patches and bottom center strip!
LITTLE ENTRY ROCKER - Little (slight) entry rocker is the best rocker for creating speed and glide in small to average conditions.
LITTLE EXIT ROCKER - Little (slight) exit rocker will create drive and speed in small to average conditions.
CONCAVE - Slight Vee in entry into slight double concave to deep double concave out the tail.
