Maluku Flying Frog White


White Thruster Flying Frogs

Principle Features of Flying Frog Surfboards:
• Construction: Arctic PU blank glassed with polyester resin
• Shaper: Bill Attlee
• Template: Most of the surface area and foam is in the front half, the wide round nose offset by a much slimmer, pulled-in tail
• Rocker: Not much entry (nose) rocker, and fairly low throughout until you reach a inch or two’s kick in the last foot of the tail
• Concave: Single through the nose, with rolled vee taking over around the mid-point to flat ‘V’ in the tail.
• Nose: Very round and full, equating to amazing glide and paddle power
• Tail: Pintail provides manoeuvrability and hold
• Rails: Medium thin and boxy, foiled out in the tail to respond to more high-performance demands
• Fin Set-Up: Tri fin FCS11
• Rider Ability: Beginner to expert – it could be your first surfboard or your twenty-first.
• Suitable Conditions: 1–6ft
The waves are small or lacking in oomph, you want to catch waves easily and don’t want to grovel, but you’d still like to do a turn or two when the opportunity presents itself? Disgruntled shortboarder, intrigued by the idea of mid-length glide and trim but unwilling to jettison the easy manoeuvrability of a shorter board? Only space in the car for a single stick, conditions uncertain, and you need something that’ll work in a wide range of waves?
The Flying Frog is the answer. What you’ve got is a kind of “cut and shunt”, but very much a roadworthy one, the two halves working together in beautiful harmony. Look at the front half in isolation and it could belong to a longboard or mini-mal – it carries its width and volume far forward through the nose, which is completely round and has very little rocker curve. But the aft section could be the tail of a full-on shortboard, which is how it feels when you turn off your back foot.
That flat entry rocker and surface area directly under the chest means it paddles swiftly with minimal input and has effortless planning speed, while the slight concave gives it the requisite lift. Then when you’re up and riding the narrow tail is much easier to control and loosened up by the kick in the rocker and vee bottom.
The Flying Frog’s comfort zone extends from knee-high to overhead, when the pintail will provide hold on bigger, steeper faces. The Thruster fin set up is a plug and go in everything option on this model. It is always worth upgrading your fins once you have got the board wired you can transform the performance to turbo with correct fins or downgrade to old banger with the wrong ones.
