Julian Wilsonʼs AIR 17 is a specially designed model that Julian and I have been working on since 2013. Julian is now riding boards that aren’t like anybody else’s – he’s taken design theories and thought processes and run with them. Having such a polished, technical surfer who is incredibly knowledgeable on board design proved invaluable time and time again while designing the AIR 17.
One of the key elements to this new model is a larger sweet spot through the central part of the board. Iʼve also made the AIR 17 thicker under the front foot by redistributing the foam slightly forward, with a deeper single to double concave than the Monsta allowing you to enjoy quick drive and acceleration right from take oﬀ. The overall combination of softer rails, a ﬂatter rocker through the middle (which allows it that larger sweet spot), deeper concaves and extra curve in the nose and tail make a PERFORMER SERIES model that will give you a fast and forgiving ride.
AIR 17 was built to work for all types of surfers in all types of conditions – if you want to find as much speed as possible in the waves you surf every day, from weak onshore rubbish to overhead perfection, then this is the board that will take you to the next level.
All stock boards have FCS2 plugs, futures plugs are available via custom order.

More spring. More speed. More acceleration.
Combined with the complex layering process, the lightweight nature of HYFI translates to a staggering transfer of energy from surfer to board, without the typical “chatter” associated with standard EPS construction. Our Hybrid Fiber Diamond Exoskeleton serves to maintain the explosive life of EPS, yet reduce any unwanted bounce, meaning it stores energy and releases it only when directed. In short? Unbelievably responsive.
