Description

Function :

The MOB is the GONG interpretation of hybrid shortSUP shapes.

Easy to surf and very efficient in slow waves.

2Taste models come with 2 Us box to plug a foil.

Introduction :

The Mob 2TASTE 7’2, 7’6 7’11, 8’3 and 8’6 are a variation of the same shape with different volumes, lengths, widths to adapt to the needs of all rider sizes and skill levels. You can take a size that is made to suit your weight or go a little bigger to insure more riding comfort.
The MOB shape is the GONG interpretation of hybrid shortSUP : boards made for all conditions and extremely efficient on mushy/average waves. The general characteristics of this shape also make it an ideal base for the discovery of SUPFoiling and an evolution within this activity.
These are boards designed for shredding (rollers, cutbacks, 360°s) in mushy, windy, choppy waves.

The MOBs are stable and ideal for those mediocre conditions that we find so often; currents, chop, wind with the  MOB= no problemo amigo. It also helps a lot when foiling because during the paddling and waiting phases, it will suppress those parasitic movements that may come from the foil.

The MOB 8’6 is an easy board for her size. Ideal for a surfer between 85 kg and 105 kg, also conviniant up to 120 kg for a rider with experience, and she’s accessible to SUPers with a competant skill level under 85 kg.

She’s a blast while paddling with her quick rocker, the lifted nose permits cutting through waves easily and she remains stable while waiting.

While surfing she can take off quite early considering her size. She performs fantastically thanks to her heightend natural acceleration. A Pro is going to be your rocket for those soft, mushy days. A competent rider is going to adore the instant speed.  An incredibly versatile board, and at ease with turns and tricks, perfect in mushy waves or shifty waves.

The pressure points are dispersed equally on the deck contrary to narrower boards that require 80% of your weight on the front leg. Hence the pressure points are easier to access for a novice on the CLOUD. The width at the tail procures you sufficient stability and enough power to shred mushier waves, all while requiring less technique than narrow boards.

Most explosive on less powerful waves and that’s the finest quality of the MOB.
