The Jet is my flagship shortboard model. An innovative hybrid shortboard designed for U.S. East Coast conditions, the Jet is designed to do the brunt work generating speed for you so you don't have to spend all your time on the wave pumping to just stay on the wave face. The Jet is designed to allow you to focus on your maneuvers rather than trying to make waves or sections. As soon as you lay into the first bottom turn, the afterburners are on.

The Jet features the "Jet Tail": a brand-new DaveySKY Surfboards innovated tail shape. The Jet Tail has a squash tail base and a wider platform for max lift and speed, with signature triple-axis winglets directly from the rail line into the squash tail to give added bite and grip to overcome the incredible lift when it's time to crank out some maneuvers. In addition to the Jet Tail: single-to-double concaves subtly fade back to single behind the rear fin and out the tail for extra power and response off the tail, a wider nose outline and a relaxed rocker profile with just a touch of flip in the nose make surfing less than stellar waves fun again, and feel like they have the power of bigger, more powerful waves. Really a must have for the year-round shortboarder that bridges the gap between the summer series grovelers and performance shortboards.


Origin Nose / Origin Tail

The OR, or Origin Rocker, the Jet was designed with. The OR rocker is the best all-around choice for making the most of the full wave range the Jet was designed for. Being the fastest of all the rocker options, it also makes it the best choice for those looking for more speed. Beginner - Advanced surfers.

Origin Nose / Accelerated Tail

The AT, or All Terrain Rocker, is designed to keep much of the utility and wave catchability of the OR rocker but enhance the off-the-tail performance of the Jet. The same nose rocker as the OR keeps a nearly identical paddle power & wave catchability while the accelerated tail rocker loosens up the board a bit and tightens its turning radius, enhancing its in-the-pocket performance capabilities. Much like All Terrain tires, it's designed for technical applications across a wide variety of conditions for those looking for a balance between utility & enhanced performance. Intermediate - Expert Surfers.

Accelerated Nose / Accelerated Tail

The XP, or Extra Performance Rocker, is designed to enhance the upper wave limit & performance of the Jet. The accelerated nose & tail rocker suit the board best for the upper end of its wave spectrum & even increase it slightly, offering easier late/steep drops & better control in bigger, hollower, punchier conditions. A great option for those who prefer surfing a slightly shorter/stubbier board in bigger conditions. Intermediate - Expert Surfers.
