The HP series defines the boards that best suit hi performance surfing over a range of conditions. They will suit wave types like found on the WCT, from Trestles to Hawaii and are the primary boards used by all our team during competition. But donâ€™t be discouraged, this does not mean they are beyond the reach of the everyday surfer; rather they are the peak in performance equipment giving you the greatest opportunity to perform at your best.
Introducing the Rounded Pin tail FORGET ME NOT. Joel used this set up in many events throughout 2012 when the waves were good. Since then it has made its way under the feet of 3 of the top 4 places in the Margret River Pro (Dusty, Ace and Julian Wilson). If your going anywhere you expect to surf good waves make sure you have a FMN Round Pin on hand.
During 2012 JS made a few adjustments to JOEL'S FMN adding more volume throughout the center of the board, yet still keeping the rail heights in line with what the model is actually for - GOOD waves. Having a lower more refined rail allows the board to penetrate and turn at high speeds. JS also added slightly more area to the outline yet leaving the tail tight with no hip for a continuous smooth curve.
The rocker has slightly more lift at the nose and tail to fit into the curve that good waves offer. A subtle single to double concave means the board will harness all the waves power and give you optimum control. (the double concave under the front foot was removed for the 2013 model). TIP: Too much concave in powerful waves will mean too much lift, making it harder to get on rail and ultimately less control.
RAIL TYPE - Forget Me Not has medium rails. They allow forgiving performance.
WAVE HEIGHT - Best performance of forget me not will be found in waves between 3 and 6 foot.
FIN TYPE - All Pin Tail FMN models come as a five plug; to accommodate a large range of wave types using Quad or Thruster configuration.
GLASSING - All FMN rounded pins are glassed in 4x4x4 with carbon tail patches.
LITTLE ENTRY ROCKER - Little entry rocker will create drive and speed in small to medium wave types.
MEDIUM EXIT ROCKER - Medium exit rocker is a comfortable balance between drive and release. Suits largest range of conditions and surfers.
CONCAVE - A subtle single to double concave means the board will harness all the waves power and give you optimum control.
