So we took some great info from Ronix and and their wakesurf terms and laid it out here for a breakdown of Ronix Wakesurf Boards. This does more than look at the basics like the skim or surf style it goes into the materials and construction of some of their best selling and most popular surfers. So lets see what is packet into these wakesurfing machines and gain some insights into their products
THE MOST COMPLETE LINE OF CROSS SECTIONS IN WAKESURFING
Of course, constructions and profiles play a massive roll in altering how a surfer rides – but this past offseason we spent a lot of time on the cross section thickness. We have surfers ranging as thin as .7” thick all the way up to almost 2” thick. Discover the amount of water stability you can get from a thin profiled board, to the increased push from a thicker platform and anywhere in between. We grouped our surfers into 4 different cross sections each catering to a unique approach on the water.
KOAL TECHNORA LUNATIC
The thickest profile in our range coming in at nearly 2” thick. Rides higher on the water and with more forward momentum than any other surfer. Because it surfs so high on the water and has so much top water speed she sometimes has a mind of her own giving it the appropriate label – Wildride – no 2 turns will ever be the same.
KOAL TECHNORA POWERTAIL+
KKOAL TECHNORA THUMBTAIL+
Has most of the fast push feeling as the Wildride but with a thinner tip for more feel and stability in and out of a turn. As thick of a tail design as a Wildride board for a rider that wants to jump on the gas and get back into the sweet spot of the wake easily – but still has a thin enough front half for it to feel more reliable.
Available on these Ronix Surf Boards :
HEX SHELL BLENDER
KOAL TECHNORA THRUSTER
KOAL CLASSIC FISH
KOAL CLASSIC LONGBOARD
MODELLO STUB FISH
MODELLO FISH SKIM
A rider that just wants the classic feel of a traditional wakesurf cross section – not too thick – not too thin. Has more feel for the water than it’s thicker counterparts, but also has more topwater speed than a skimmer. Eight of our boards use a variation of this thickness for a well-diversified ride.
HEX SHELL SKATE SKIMMER
Nearly 1/3 the thickness of the Wildride category – a board designed to sacrifice some top water momentum for a board that has the most feel with the water. Allowing the rider to surf more like they are on a wakeskate, either using a shallow fin, or no fin at all because the board has so much natural grip with the water and is sitting that much deeper in the water.
