The Mob is a Shortboard that is easy to surf and renders high-performance in soft, mushy waves.
The shape of the Mob gives you a modern style (rollerblades, cut back, 360°, air) in soft, mushy, even windy and multi-peaked waves. This compact and buoyant shape is full of dynamism and relaunch: a real turbo and a delight in the punchy waves.
Paddling, it’s a sure hit with its fast rocker. Its raised nose allows you to pass the waves easily. And it’s easy when waiting for waves with its wide extremities. This is what allows you to go down in length and have a responsive and playful Board.
In surfing, it takes off early for its size with its wide back end that the wave will push forward. From the first pumping you will feel that it is very efficient thanks to its high, and natural acceleration. A pro will turn it into a rocket out of it and score on the soft days. An intermediate will love this instant speed to make the most of getting through the sections.
It is a Board with a wide range that will be comfortable in curves as well as in tricks. The supports are evenly distributed between the two feet, unlike the narrow Boards on which you have 80% of the weight on the front leg. This tail width also provides you with more stability and power to rip soft waves; while being less technical.
More explosive in less powerful waves, it is the trademark of the Mob.
The Mob FSP 2X are a variation of the same shape in different volumes, lengths, widths to fit all sizes and levels. You can take the size most suited to your weight to crush it or oversize it for comfort.
We offer them in 5 sizes: 7’2, 7’6, 7’11, 8’3 and 8’6.
These Boards are equipped with an innovative technology called FSP 2X for the best weight / strength / performance ratio on the market. The gain is significant since it is on average 15% lighter than the 2019 FSPs. The addition of a biaxial fiber greatly strengthens the board, so no concessions have been made on the exemplary strength of the FSPs, on the contrary. It is by designing a new finishing technique, as close as possible to our prototypes made in our French factory, that we have succeeded in saving weight. We work with tinted resins to avoid as much as possible the paint that loads the board unnecessarily. Paint integrated into the resin, your board is enhanced with nobility and durability.
The MOB FSP 2X are equipped with the 3D Function pad 2020 which is more resistant and provides maximum comfort and grip. In addition, we offer them with 4 FCS II Boxes. The highest standard on the market. You will be able to have the perfect Quad set-up to accentuate your surf style and have access to a catalog with the highest of quality Fins.
Rocker : intermidiate between a short and longboard : exceptional maneuverability and speed in small waves.
Rails : Thin and soft for that real surf feeling.
Volume : generous without excess : early take offs and great performance in smaller/medium conditions.
Outline : wide at tail, stable center, a medium/high wide point and a nose close to that of a longboard.
Tail : fish diamond nose, wide : Stable, exceptionally fast edge to edge and plenty of rebound power.
Nose : diamond nose to augment weight bearing capacity and bouyancy on flat water.
Innovation is at the core of our Boards
Technology FSP 2X SUP :
3D Shape on modeling software.
Preshape by numerical control for total reliability.
Shape control by traditional templates, finishing of the last mm 100% by hand.
100% Epoxy Board and EPS foam blank : solid and lightweight.
Deck, hull and rails in PVC sandwich under vacuum : incomparable strength and incredible dynamism.
Deck: integral PVC/Fiberglass sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz biaxial fiberglass, fiberglass reinforcements on sensitive areas.
Hull : integral PVC/Fiberglass Sandwich composed of a high-density PVC foam core and 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass and 1 layer of 6oz biaxial fiberglass, and fiberglass reinforcements on the sensitive areas.
Rails : the PVC Sandwich structure completely covers the rails : increased structural strength, very good shock resistance (paddle dings).
Carry Handle integrated in the PVC sandwich top : limits settling, avoid breakage in the surroundings.
Hot coat dyed in the mass : nobility of the process, weight reduction and solidity of the finish.
Custom Mat finish, hand-made, for weight reduction and a better glide.
The FSP 2X Technology is easily repairable when new in case of a ding. The PVC foam of the sandwich is waterproof and prevents water from entering on everyday shocks or dings.
This Techno offers, at an affordable price, the incomparable strength/lightness ratio of full vacuum PVC Sandwich.
Two possibilities :
1/ You want the Board to rip everything apart in Longboard waves, but without having to use a Longboard. The Mob has this speed resource to perform in soft waves like an Alley would do in hollow waves.
So, you have a physical and technical level at the top and you will take it without excess volume to be able to move it violently.
2/ You’re pretty cool. You don’t feel like Longboarding, but you want a Board that works in soft waves, the Mob is for you!
You may also want a Board that can do everything, not too technical if you don’t ask for verticality, compact so it fits in the car, very stable when rowing and surfing, and with a modern look.
The Mob allows for high performance in a very specific wave range. But its big plus is to allow everyone to surf a small Board without any difficulty.
Unlike its flat counterparts, the Mob has rocker. It is not complicated at the take off.
Going from zero to 100 in a few meters in soft waves : that’s her strong point.
The Mob is all about acceleration. So, it’s the ideal Board for riding in soft waves.
Its « rectangular » but harmonious outline, without excess, gives it great stability. But it also naturally orientates it towards the so-called horizontal moves : snaps, airs, floaters, 360°.
You can of course pull rollers on it, but its specialty is to take speed to burn it in a forceful move. It is not to gently ride mellow on the face of the wave.
The 7’2 is easy for those under 70 kg and technically performant for those under 80 kg.
The 7’6 is easy for those under 80 kg and technically performant for those under 90 kg.
The 7’11 is easy for those under 90 kg and technically performant for those under 100 kg.
The 8’3 is easy for those under 100 kg and technically performant for those under 110 kg.
The 8’6 is easy for everyone, certainly too easy for the lighter riders.
Quiver Partners ?
We like the Mob on the low beach: in the small waves, in the chop, in the mushy waves. That’s where it outperforms the other Boards.
So, obviously, it’s going to encroach on the Longboards. But a Longboarder can also want to be compact from time to time. He may encounter waves where there is little room to move, surprise sections to be dealt with as an opportunist. The Mob will then impose itself!
The Quivers that go well, from small waves to big waves :
Mob + Fatal + Karmen or Alley: this is the quiver of the pure ShortSUPer.
Mob + Fatal : it’s the Quiver of the ShortSUPer which likes compact boards.
Never Stick + Mob + Karmen : it’s the most vast quiver in feelings and ranges of use.
A 12’0 + Mob + Alley : it’s also a huge Quiver in feelings and ranges of use.
The Mob will complete a surf Quiver quite easily by its performance in small waves. But one will often hesitate to take it because it is the program of a good fish like the Pie or a Matata. A surfer will certainly want to spend time on his surfboards rather than on a SUP.
What kind of Fin mounting ?
This very wide tailed Board is only available in Quad, a very fast mountingfor who like to use the thighs to push it hard.
All the classical mountings work, no monstrous gain in performance when going to exoticism. A good set of rigid Performers will be perfect. Switch to Carvers if you want more directional stability (control).
Especially no Reactor.
Toledo and Wilson are great, Fannings are more powerful for the same size. But these Fins are only sold as a Tri Fin set. To be completed with retail Quads Rears.
Take your recommended Fin size or just above. No less. You’re going to need grip to exploit it.
Reminder of the recommended FCS II Fin sizes :
XS for those under 55 kg / 120 Lbs
S for 55 kg – 70 kg / 120 Lbs – 155 Lbs
M for 65 kg – 80 kg / 145 Lbs – 175 Lbs
L for 75 kg – 90 kg / 165 Lbs – 200 Lbs
XL for those over 85 kg / 190 Lbs.
Note that before the shape, it is the material of the Fins that make the performance. Keep in mind that the stiffer a Fin is, the better it works. Yes, a pro needs good Fins, but an amateur also needs to go fast because speed is the basis of all manoeuvres.
Never go shorter, except when Kiting.
A surfer who wants more speed, to make more beautiful curves, to surf more cleanly, to work on his speed gain, will take one size above the recommended size.
In a mounting that mixes sets, consider that the sides do the grip and acceleration; and the backs do the pivot, drive and some grip. So, focus on Laterals in front that fit your need for power and speed.
Flat inner-sided quad rear Fins have more grip and less glide. A stronger grip, but a Vmax and a mania one hair below the curved inner faces (20/80 for example). Go for the flat sides despite everything.
And too big quad backs totally block the handling of your Board, giving you the impression that its tail « floats » too much in the curves. Hateful. Better too small than too big.
How long should my Paddle be?
Your size no more and no less, ideally in Pro for the weight. You can take a little shorter if you are oriented on a radical use. Some people cut it to the height of their eyebrows.
Which Leash ?
Take the length of your Board : 7′ or 8′, even 9′ on the 8’6.
Less shoulder size, a reduced diameter (6mm) will help you gain a lot of speed. Above that, you must have 7mm minimum.
Check its condition before each session and change it every year. This is your lifejacket.
4 FCS II Glass Flex Fins for Quad mounting.
4 lateral, forward and back, high resistance FCS II boxes, placed into PVC HD for Quad mounting.
3D Function Pad 5 mm : “Inteligent” deck coating concieved to deliver a different feeling under foot to differentiate zones with comfort and total adherence.
Leash plug Concrete Fixed at tail to never lose your board.
Integrated central Carry Handle on the board deck.
GONG SUP MOB FSP 2X: 769 €
We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.
We sell simply without an intermediary thanks to the internet : direct from Shaper to Surfer at the LOWEST price..
If we sold this board in a surfshop, it would cost 1539€ (taking into account traditional margins that we should offer to distributers and stores).
The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.
These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.
We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.
If it’s available online: it’s available 😉
Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.
Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.
The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.
However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.
As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.
It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:
All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.
We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.
The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.
We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.
Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.
We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.
Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.
Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.
The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.
For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.
We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.
Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.
In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting 😉
We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible 😉
Preserving the environment is a top priority. That’s why we are doing everything possible to reduce our environmental footprint.
The first thing is to sell quality products that will last, be repairable and will please you for a long time.
The second thing is to sell for less. Most of the pollution coming from a Board is in its use (the km driven to use it) and in the countless environmental damages you have to do to pay for it. Each euro spent is a sum of damage related to your life quite simply: eating, working hard etc… By reducing the price of our products, we significantly reduce your ecological footprint on this item.
For our shipments we use:
Flexi-Hex: ecological packaging of very high resistance.
Paper Craft Scotch Tape.
Final packaging made of high-end cardboard.
All this for:
Reusable and recyclable packaging.
An almost total reduction of single-use plastic.
Maximum protection and impact resistance thanks to the innovative design of Flexi-Hex honeycomb (35mm thick).
Tracking of your parcels :
The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.
If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.
We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.
We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.
For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.
For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.
Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.
Reception of your Board:
Upon delivery, simply open and inspect the condition of your Board in the presence of the carrier. A complete email explaining the procedure to follow will be sent to you when your order is shipped.
In spite of our requirements and all the care we take in packaging and protecting your Board, transportation hazards may occur. Even if it concerns less than 2% of everything we ship around the world, a Board can suffer a more or less important transportation shock.
But in any case, don’t worry, just refuse it, and a new Board will be shipped back to you.
You can choose to return your products if:
You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
You want to change an item.
You have refused your package.
For each situation, contact us by email to help you.
