OCEAN RODEO JESTER

Length: 5’1” / Width: 18” / Thickness: 2” 5/16”

Fin set up: Quad or Tri / Volume: 17.6 litres

The Jester is dubbed the ultimate trickster of the OR line and it offers amazing levels of control for strapless manoeuvres and freeride carving. The insert-free deck is framed by a very parallel outline and follows a flat and more centred rocker line. The Jester comes complete with with a full deck pad for some amazing grip everywhere you need it and five premium fins for Thruster or quad configurations. Ocean Rodeo’s exclusive construction incorporates a very durable UV-stable cap film top sheet and a glass sandwich construction with bamboo veneer inserts in the critical impact areas. The oval shape and parallel rail outline and the thin profile give the Jester easy upwind drive and very balanced swing weight. This board is smooth and comfortable and very stable and reactive underfoot. It’s easy to rip through chop and hold an edge as its deep concave provides ideal cushioning and control through the bumps. Amazingly balanced and ready for quick chop, the Jester provides some extra swagger for any technical strapless manoeuvres. Not as comfortable or slashy in bigger surf, the Jester is quick driving, fun and easy to track with while on edge. The tail is narrow and thinned out enough that it can still paste some small wave faces and carve some tight turns but its true character is cruising on edge and looking for the timing to punt some strapless airs. This is an easy board for any level of rider to enjoy freeriding but it is also a high performance new school, freestyle board that more advanced level riders will appreciate.
