The FlyJoi is a performance small wave performance board we have been testing intensively with the team. Initial designs had some pretty wild tail aesthetics to play with. Many customers order the FlyJoi with a slit swallow or moon tail but we came up with something a little tamer for the the final stock design.
We’ve used the successful Protag rocker from several years back and blended it with a new outline and rail foil. Blending a drivey rocker with release off the tail, the FlyJoi adds joy to your turns. The wider tail block with a straighter rail line is great for increasing drive off the bottom & providing good release at the top. The FlyJoi has a single to double to vee bottom. The apex of the concave is in the centre of the board. Feedback has been great and these custom double wing swallow tails with resin tints are looking insane. In the video below you can see me in the bay shaping FlyJoi’s for the whole team to test and explaining the finer details of the design. You can also watch Ryu (175cm/74kg) rides a 5’8 x 19 x 23/8 (27L) FlyJoi in the small waves around his home.
