Description

Program

Inflatable surfboard type funboard, compact and dedicated to small waves.

Presentation

The GONG SURF INFLATABLE COMPACT is perfect for “summer” waves.

It paddles fast for its size because it is thick. When you take off, you just have to plant the tail a little to start in three paddle strokes. Its surfing qualities are surprising with a one third very wide rear to accelerate, which naturally generates a lot of speed. And paradoxically, it turns really well thanks to its small size, which is very playful. For an inflatable board, the surfing performances are amazing.

It’s the ideal board for soft waves, but also for hollow shorebreaks which require a small board to slide down the slope gently. Its range of use is therefore really wide and will cover most of the summer sessions.

Safety is a key argument on this range of inflatable boards. Storage is obviously an asset, but the protection of the inflatable against impacts for both the surfer and the board itself are a real plus.

A truly original board for an unbelievable pleasure without the constraints of a rigid board!

2 boards from 5’0 to 5’6 for all sizes. With the surfs GONG Inflatable Compact, you have a board at the forefront of modernity, solid, dynamic, of high quality, and all this without breaking the bank thanks to our online sales system (direct sale from the shaper to the foiler, without intermediary).

  • The 5’0 x 55L is intended for intermediate levels with small to medium builds.
  • The 5’6 x 62L is intended for beginners with small to medium builds but also for more advanced and heavier surfers.

Shape

GONG was the first brand in the world to produce inflatable surfboards. Our know-how is therefore a reflection of our experience. But we don’t stop there because we are constantly innovating to make these boards as efficient as possible. GONG Inflatable Compact surfboards have a refined shape, unique in the world of inflatable, with a real affiliation with rigid boards.

These boards are reassuring by their generous width and volume allowing easy and fast take-offs even on the softest waves.

Their straight outline on the tail will boost acceleration. That’s why these boards perform in cool waves, without having to step up to a longboard. You just hop on it, give a little push and it bursts.

Its small size associated with a round and short nose ensures maneuverability and reactivity.

The very flat rocker at the rear third allows for a rapid speed gain with a good conservation  of it on the soft sections of the wave.

The rails are round in front and hard at the tail which provides progressive grip while holding firmly in hollow sections.

It’s the inflatable board combining maneuverability and speed!

Equipment

It’s a revolution in inflatable surfing: GONG innovates by adding FCS II boxes !!!

The most practical and top-of-the-range boxes in the world are finally available on our inflatable boards. With our patented inclusion system, you have access to FCS II performance, the best fins in the world, and all without a screw. Frankly that’s awesome.

GONG Inflatable Compact surfboards are equipped with top-of-the-range pads, with a good cover and refined profile  which bring a maximum of grip.

Its rigid but foldable rear rails make it a digest of new technologies, providing performance without compromising the compactness of the inflatable.

There is no shortage of essentials, such as the stainless steel ring on the back to secure your leash.

Construction

These boards are equipped with the best inflatable technology: high quality materials are used such as the Dropstitch Mirasol produced in the best factories in the world.

These boards are made up of double PVC layers welded to the deck and the hull ensuring a rigidity that conventional technologies can’t compete with. The rails are also reinforced to ensure you have a durable board that is highly resistant to impact and abrasion.

Another benefit, not the least: it’s possible to repair these inflatable boards yourself, simply and thanks to the use of repair kits included in your pack. For all other requests, we keep all components in stock. At GONG, our boards are repairable from A to Z.

 

Your benefits are clear:

1. An efficient shape created by one of the leaders in the world of surf.
2. A construction ensuring rigidity and dynamism associated with the benefits of the inflatable.
3. A reliable construction proven on thousands of boards.
4. Full Option finishing with the best equipment available.
5. An incredible price that can only be explained by our direct relationship with you.

Buying guide

For whom?

All those looking for something cool and carefree. A board that is super easy to store, solid, and reassuring.

This shape is short, therefore more technical. It’s ideal when you have a little surfing experience and know how to place your stance.

What’s it for?

Perfect for progressing and having a blast in waves that require acceleration.

This is a shape dedicated to soft waves or with long mellow sections. Its wide tail maintains speed and the small length of the board gives incredible responsiveness.

Some will also love this shape for its style of gliding, including in hollow and faster waves, to play with this reactivity.

What size?

The 5’0 x 55L is intended for intermediate levels of small to medium builds.

The 5’6 x 62L is aimed at beginner to intermediate levels of light to medium builds but will also suit bigger builds of good level.

Understanding the GONG range

All GONG inflatable surfboards are easy, practical and strong. You will progress quickly and really have a good time on these boards. But there are different programs and styles:

  • Shortboards: ideal in waves that push a little.
  • The Compacts: hyper reactive boards perfect in soft waves.
  • Longboards: a lot of comfort and stability for small waves and noserides.

What accessories?

A leash, a poncho, a good wetsuit and go !!!

Shipping

Availability:

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 ?

 

Pre-order:

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:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. 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.

 

Delays:

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.

 

Shipping Fees: 

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.

 

Any questions:

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 ?

 

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.

 

Delivery:

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.

 

Returns:

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 our contact form to help you.
