Lib Tech - Lost Puddle Jumper HP
The new outline of Lib Tech's Puddle Jumper HP Libtech enables you to surf even more like a normal board-a very playful board that is easy to paddle and ride yet still allows more radical and quick turns than all other PJ models.
"If you are one of the thousands of surfers that enjoyed the Puddle Jumper Series, the PJHP allows you to take your small wave surfing to the next level." ~Matt Biolos
The Puddle Jumper HP is a souped-up, slimmed down, refined Puddle Jumper. It features a pulled in nose with the wide point brought back, and a narrower, pulled in tail block.
It is easy on the eyes, sleek and refined under the arm, and its smooth foiled lines deceptively hide its significant volume with built in speed to spare. Stand on the tail of this thing and simply go to town, up and down, round and round, like you have a motor in small surf. The tail, with its foiled rails and deep vee, holds in and gives confidence at high speeds. The overall rocker, generous width and deep central concave generate small wave squirt like you would expect from a Puddle Jumper.
This board features a concave bottom that transitions to vee in the tail. The wide outline makes for easy wave catching and down the line glide and stability. The concave bottom adds lift and an increased rail curve, which allows radical top to bottom surfing. The straight rail line & vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and hold in during hard carving manoeuvres.
Thirty years in the making Lib Techs new phase 3 ECO-ISO construction pushes performance, durability, environmental materials and process to new levels. At the heart of the board is Nitrogencell foam that is loaded with nitrogen and has engineered elongated cell structure for maximum compression strength and energy return. Nitrogenecell will not absorb water and is 25%-40% recycled material and we recycle 100% of the offcuts into new foam.
Hexzylon Fiberfoam surface skin greatly enhances ding resistance break strength while adding a silky-smooth ride. Basalt fiber chosen for it is high strength properties and vibration absorption is placed directly beneath the Hexszylon adding strength and performance. All this is fused using a unique resin matrix that bridges the gap between polyester and epoxy, the best qualities of a new polyester with the lifespan of an epoxy.
Sizes listed as FCS II have fin boxes that are FCS and FCS II compatible.
