The Nitro was one of our most loved Summer Series boards back in the day! With many customers continuing to order this as a custom model I thought it was time to be creative and make a completely new one. I have given the Psycho Nitro a fuller nose with a slight vee and added more foam under the chest to give you even more paddle power. It has a smooth, flat, continuous rocker with a single concave under the front foot which runs into a double concave through the fins and finishes with a vee out of the swallow tail.
For 2018, we’ve elimated the flyer, and pulled in the tail even more, which reduces the area through the back of the board and allows you to turn on a dime in the pocket on small waves. This provides a fast, reactive feel that will let you draw lines in average conditions that simply aren’t possible on other boards! To complement this, the swallow tail gives the Psycho Nitro a lively rail-to-rail feel and makes it incredibly easy to surf.
Regardless of what time of year it is, this new model is a perfect way to keeping us all surfing between swells. It’s super quick, paddles amazingly, turns really well and has everything you need for a fun surf in less powerful, everyday waves.Psycho Nitro comes standard with a 5 fin set up so you can ride it as a thruster or a quad. Ride the Psycho Nitro 4 - 6 inches shorter than your normal short board.
WAVE TYPE: Best performance of PSYCHO NITRO will be in average to fun waves between 1 and 4 feet. PSYCHO NITRO has been tried and tested world wide in everything from hollow 3 – 5 feet to full 1-2 feet onshore waves.
Rocker: PSYCHO NITRO has overall low to flat rocker. This is the perfect all-round rocker for creating speed and glide in small to fun conditions.
Fin setup: PSYCHO NITRO comes stock as a five fin and will work equally well as a quad or thruster depending on the conditions. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.
Glassing specs: Boards 5'2" - 5'10" glassed standard with 4 x 2 x 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom. Boards 5'11" and up glassed standard with 4 x 4 oz deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)
Rail type: PSYCHO NITRO has full rails to reduce catch in less then favourable conditions.
CONCAVE: PSYCHO NITRO features a slight rolled vee through nose, running into a single concave under the front foot through to a double concave forward of the fins with a slight vee out of the swallow tail. This design allows for easy manoeuvrability while still giving the board maximum lift and speed.
