Detailed Technology and Design Philosophy

Introduction

Ocean

Inspired on North Cornwall’s Atlantic coast, Ocean is shaped to perform.  With a smart design behind a Scandinavian minimalist approach this board is dedicated to downwind conditions and stability in rough waves.

The board fits any rider level with our broad range of sizes.   The construction is a unique premium carbon technology using an Ultra-light EPS core.  The board serves as Kona’s recommended one board Quiver.

Numinous

Born from Kona’s Scandinavian DNA, Numinous is designed to race. Specifically, for sprinting and long distance.

The board fits any rider level with our broad range of sizes. The construction is a unique premium carbon technology using an Ultra-light EPS core.

The shape is optimised for low drag and rider stability.

Rider feature

Ocean

Beach Racing Setup

Ocean comes with a middle carry handle combined with internal grip incuts for beach racing starts. This allows the rider to run whilst holding the board firmly with his paddle during critical beach racing starts.

Leash and Camera Mounts

The board comes with leash plugs forward and aft for your choice and length of leash. It also comes with a gopro mount in the mid nose area to capture all your action.

Deck-Pads

Ocean is supplied with top quality EVA deck pads, along with our customisable tail kicker, this comes with the board and can be positioned by the rider to suit their personal preference.

Training Storage

The board comes with an elastic and cord system to allow you to stow away clothing and equipment as and when you need it.

Designers notes

Ocean

Nose/bow design

When downwind riding a long slender shape with plenty of area for planning is going to allow the board to glide down waves.  Often the board picks up speed and can catch up with the waves in front causing the board to nose dive.  Ocean has a slight forward V in the nose to soften this effect and also a generous nose rocker to reduce the nose digging in. From ¾ forward there is a large amount of volume spread out wide and low, this promotes the bow to lift in a smooth way if it does become underwater.

The forward part of the board is aerodynamically designed to help in side-wind conditions, this helps the board track forward and reduces the windage turning the board downwind.  Which in turn saves you energy.

Engineered to surf

The board runs a single concave, becoming double which provides lift and helps the board get planning on chop and swell for downwind surfing. The double concave flattens out in the tail for stability and surfing ability.

The plan shape is a smooth classic shape with plenty of area forward and aft to further assist with surfing downwind.  It also makes the board less sensitive to longitudinal weight changes meaning you can paddle harder.

Numinous

Buoy turning:

The tail is slightly raised to give more volume when you step back, and this allows the board to pop out the water again once the turn is complete. The raised tail also stops water coming in from the back and keeps the deck dryer. Another feature is it helps promote catching small bumps and allows Numinous to perform even in choppy conditions.

Drainage Holes

Drainage holes are positioned with a down and negative aft angle to minimise water coming back in. The deck is slightly raised in the middle to promote water to the drainage holes.

Fin Design

The board comes with a Honey comb fibreglass fin, that is optimised for forward tacking and low drag. The fin box is US 10 inch box that allows the rider to customise there setup depending on their riding style.

Construction

Carbon

The board is designed using an ultra-light CNCed EPS core compressed with a heat moulded carbon fibre laminate. This is a unique technique that creates an extremely light and tough construction that can withstand all the action in a racing environment. The boards epoxy to fibre ratio is carefully controlled by our approved factory’s which give the maximum stiffness to weight ratio. The finish is a light weight paint and clear coat finish for smooth water flow.

Hybrid

The board is designed using an ultra-light CNCed EPS core, compressed with a heat moulded Glass fibre laminate.  This is a unique technique that creates an extremely light and tough construction that can withstand the demands of exploration. The boards epoxy to fibre ratio is carefully controlled by our approved factory’s which give the maximum stiffness to weight ratio.  There is a central Uni directional glass stringer which adds to the stiffness of this board and helps with gliding efficiency. The finish is a light weight paint. 

Heat Moulded technology makes Kona Boards Glass Fibre laminate lighter, stronger and tougher than the market Standard.
