You’ve heard of the Average Joe, no doubt – a high-volume, super-fun, undemanding shortboard model and one of Channel Islands’ best-sellers over the last few years. Perhaps you’ve had a go one. Maybe you enjoyed the fuller curves, the extra stability, the user-friendly design characteristics...

But maybe you weren't happy with average and wanted something a little bit higher performance? The Ultra Joe is the board for you: still easy to ride but helping you take your surfing forward with more critical lines and a rail-to-rail approach. It’s a souped-up and sleeker version of the Average, retaining the all-important fun factor but streamlining the template and updating the rocker profile.

The most noticeable changes are the narrower nose and pulled-in tail for reduced bulk, improved manoeuvrability and greater precision through turns. The subtle double-bump in the line with the fins is also new; there’s a little more exit rocker through the tail, too, and again this will aid performance.

The Ultra Joe would make a great first shortboard, providing good paddle power and stability while still encouraging progression; more experienced surfers, who should go as short as possible, will love it as a cruisey but performance-oriented small-wave board. If you tire of thrusting, the five-fin set-up gives you the option of a quad, which will provide superior drive, hold, and speed generation.

Features:

  • Construction: PU/PE
  • Concave: Single through the middle, double through the fins with a "vee" out the tail
  • Rocker: A very flat section through the middle but a fair bit more exit rocker than the Average Joe. On the whole though it's quite relaxed
  • Fin Set-Up: 5 fin
  • Fin System: FCS II
  • Nose: Hybrid
  • Tail: Squash
  • Rails: Medium-full – more refined and responsive than the Average Joe's
  • Rider ability: An everyday board for intermediates or a groveller for advanced surfers
  • Suitable Conditions: 1ft to 5ft
