Exocet Kona 10’5”

Jun 18, 2009

V: 145 L: 320 W: 65
To figure out the Kona 10’5” we have to ditch our conventional thoughts of what a 145-litre board should do. At 320 cm in length it looks like a longboard, but with no centerboard has shortboard performance. We find the 10’5” really came to life when matched with our smaller test sails (5.7 m2). It planes easily when powered and reaches a reasonable speed with a minimal amount of effort. A lot of this can be credited to the duck-tail, which makes for a unique feeling as if the board shrinks in size once planing. What is truly shocking is its carving ability. Providing you maintain enough speed to keep the duck-tail planing, the 10’5” rips through jibes as if on rails. With this new-found confidence in its carving, we take the 10’5” out for some lightwind wavesailing and find ourselves having way more fun than we should in the waist-high crumblers. exocet-original.com
