The Karmen FSP 6’10, 7’3, 7’8, 7’11, 8’4, 8’9 and 9’8 are size variations based on same shape in different volumes and lengths design to adapt to the needs of different sized riders. These boards succeed to the Curve Pro with many evolutions for better comfort and fluidity while surfing.
The Two main axis with which we have guided its development : the Bullet nose and simple concave hull (under the rowing position) then a double concave (under the front footsore position) and finishing with a V under the back foot.
The form of this type of nose allows us to push the useful volume towards the center while reducing the volume of the extremities (nose and tail). This new repartitioning of the useful volume creates a more fluid surfing with less inertia at the extremities. The Stability is better than with a point nose, hence you’ll be able to choose a smaller volume without worrying about falling when the water gets agitated. Another advantage of this round nose, it makes no mistakes at the time of take off, it doesn’t push the Board to one side when looking to dig, that crucial phase becomes less technical. It’s right between the point nose of a Curve SP Pro and the larger square nose of the Mob Pro : a forward outline that is tightened up in order to recuperate the lines for surfing despite the significant width.
The Karmen FSP are Boards 100% dedicated to radical turns : rollers, top turns, slashing, driving cut backs and airs in solid driving waves, tight turns are on demand.
This is THE board for those who want to surf aggressively while maintaining fluid paddling and comfort. The 7’11 is perfect for the surfer weighing less than 75kg and suitable for one up to 90kg.
Comfy while waiting period and paddling, her strong rocker and the deep concave under the feet limits parasitic movements. Her kicked nose cuts through the waves and chop easily, her row is moderate and drops into wave easily due to her speed.
While surfing she dominates the sketchiest drop ins almost by herself! Two or three strokes and it’s on, the rocker absorbs the slope and she locks in ready for some wicked bottom turns. The double concave insures a perfect hooking and secures good footing.
The thin tail and the Vee under the back foot offer serious handling precision and some magical projections. She’s built to collect turns!! Once you start pumping your legs her speed and flexability explose, she’s a very aggressive board at ease in all conditions, even in hollow and steep waves. The faster and strong the wave…. the more at ease she is. A dynamique surfer will exploit her even in the sloppiest of wave conditions without even having to push her hard.
She was born to snap it off the lip, pull off rollers and to lay down some sick carves. The rail to rail is instictive, very close to a regular shortboard, she loves getting vertical and kissing the lip, she’s a REAL high performance board !!!
