Patrik T (Trailer) Wave

The Delta Quick Review: We don't get too many days in the waves, so when we do head to the coast we have make the most out of them. A T-Wave always seem to be the first board into the car as the Trailer Wave fin box set-up gives means it's always the perfect board for the conditions. If it's crappy onshore we can go with the fins closer together for a more pivoting turn that at least gets us a few rides. If things clean up a bit or the wind turns side-shore we'll usually take out the trailer fin for a more skatey feel where we can round out turns pushing through the white water. Then on those magic San Carlos days we can spread out the fins for more grip, and rail though high speed bottom turns. Of course some times we just want to ride in our T-Wave in the backyard with no wave's, and knowing that we can slip in a single fin for some extra speed just adds that much more versatility. You always hear about the one board quiver, but the T-Wave may be the one board that actually changes it's feel to suit different conditions.

Manufacturer's Info:

A shorter name and a refreshed look is the change, but the shape is still the one we like the most. Simply a board which does everything everywhere. The shape is designed independently from the fin setup and the rider just needs to decide which shape will fit his or her body size and riding level.

The fins can be tuned in many ways depending on surfing style and prevailing conditions. The trailer and twinzer fin setup ride and slide the best in head to mast high waves. Bigger waves are conquered with the Thruster setup while strong wind flat water sailing makes most sense with a Single fin. 

The Concept

Many people understand that smaller and/or lighter riders tend to have smaller feet and/or a lighter/lower leverage point and therefore they prefer narrower tails and they can also handle shorter boards. Taller and/or heavier riders with bigger feet and/or longer legs have a higher/heavier leverage point and tend to prefer a bit of extra board length and tail width to support their weight and power on the tail.

A similar principle also applies to sailing level. Pro’s who drive their turns over the front foot and steer with the back, tend to opt for shorter shapes so they can carve short radiuses and close the turn over the narrow tail. Novice wave riders focus more on their back foot and need added width in the tail to support the additional force they exert over the tail so they don’t lose too much speed during the turn. A little bit of additional length also helps novices to float around and tackle any white water.

Shape Details

Scoop Rocker Line

A balanced curve with zero flat spots throughout the whole bottom has proved its performance over the years. The result is early planing, smooth and controlled turns on the wave and in the gybes, combined with a comfortable ride.

Outline

A short and modern outline with a narrow tail ensures you will have the most wave riding fun in any conditions, from small messy waves to BIG point breaks!!
t-wave wide: Slightly longer than the Trailer Wave with a wider tail for even earlier planing and added support in the back strap. The wider tail is also more suitable for onshore conditions or even blasting on flat water in strong winds.

Rail Shape

Thinner at the nose to reduce weight, running into a harmonic mid section that allows the rail to dig into the water for carved turns when the rider’s weight is moved forward and more floaty rails when closing turns and steering the board over the back foot. Sharp, thin rails in the tail for optimum water release and grip in any turn.
t-wave wide: Thin at the nose to reduce weight, running into a thicker mid section compared to the smaller sizes to offer a bit more flotation support for heavier guys, ending with a sharp rail in the tail for optimum grip in any turn.

Bottom Shape

Slight vee in the nose area prevents it catching on upcoming waves/chop. Single concave through the mid section provides lift whilst also giving a cushioning feeling, which is softer to ride and allows it to plane earlier.

The sharper centre line is due to a double concave under the footstrap area that lets the board track better and the more negative rails have increased grip in the turns. Flat vee in the last 20cm of the tail releases the water quickly and smoothly and minimises turbulence for all performance aspects.

Deck Shape

Maximum volume provides flotation on light wind days, making the true excitement of wave riding in smooth glassy water possible. Slightly rounded deck shape provides the perfect balance between having grip under the feet for jumping and allowing the toe/heel contact with the board for wave riding.

t-wave wide: Slightly flater in the deck around the mast track compared to the TW for a more stable platform and similar deck dome to the TW around the strap area to provide the perfect balance between having grip under the feet for jumping and allowing the toe/heel contact with the board for wave riding.

Inserts

A variety of inserts in the front allow riders to alter the angle and position of the footstraps to suit their style and foot size.

Construction

A wave board is often used in stronger winds and/or wave conditions where it is normal to jump and crash. When landing jumps, the board will be exposed to high stress loads on both the deck and bottom. The most flexible and stress load resistant material to build a suitable board with would be pure glass, but this is less than ideal in terms of impact resistance – just look at used surfboards where dings, cracks and holes are standard. It’s inevitable that a wave board will experience some form of impact from a hard object – rig, rider or reef – at some point and this is where Kevlar excels. A pure carbon construction is too stiff for a smooth wave ride and just like pure glass, it is not the most impact resistant material. Kevlar is the right material to prevent damage from impact, but it is too soft to resist the stress load and so a full Kevlar construction would collapse within a short period of time. Our experience shows that a Carbon/Kevlar combination works best for the range of use of a wave board. With a 50% Carbon part the board is still flexible, but strong enough to resist the stress load, and the 50% Kevlar gives the resistance required to withstand impacts.
