"The V3 Rocket is an extension of the Rocket Collection. Released in 2014, it quickly became a retail standout and a custom order favorite. From the average, every day surfer, to the traveling pro, almost all who rode a V3 were stoked. Word spread, and popularity grew. From Matt Biolos’ 6‘0’ x 41 liter “go-to” board all year long, to Luke Davis winning a WQS on a 23liter 5’4” the diversity is clear…it’s a great all around hybrid design for just about any type of surfer. News Flash! Nate Yeomans just won the Oneill Cold Water Classic on a stock 5’9” V3-Rocket!" - Lost.
When ridden as a quad, the narrower tail is freed up, allowing the surfer to stand a bit further forward and still remain loose and free in small surf. The nose outline was also pulled in a bit, in the 12-18" area, netting a more elliptical, catch free, overall outline that fits into curvy wave faces better than Rockets of the past. A more freed up and quick reacting outline that handles a wider range of waves, even powerful and well overhead, but still easy to paddle and surf in small or crowded conditions. Inspired by the positive performance feedback from the "Grocket" version (with single wing and pulled in swallow) that we released years ago. The "Grocket" was, and continues to be, a custom order favorite. Like the Grocket, The V3-Rockets higher performance characteristics in relation the other Rockets (and their wide tails) makes it the "fishy" board for guys who don't ride fish!
