Pocket Series: When it comes to high performance SUP surfing, there is no better board offering than the Blue Planet Pocket Series. With a template and rocker line inspired by high performance shortboards found in the islands of Hawai’i, these models will help you bottom turn, carve, snap, cutback, perform floaters and get barreled like a pro. The pulled in nose allows for fast turns from the tail and speed down the line, while the squash tail contributes to drive and loosens up your turns on the face. These boards are deliberately kept narrow to minimize drag while maximizing rail to rail responsiveness and surf performance. Like all Blue Planet models under 10’6, the Pocket Series models come with a Futures/US Center 4+1 fin setup allowing you to fine tune performance to your preference and home break. For those looking to get top level surfing performance out of their SUPs, look no further than the Blue Planet Pocket Series which features the following models: 7’6 x 26.5 Pocket Ace, 8’2 x 28 Pocket Friend, 8’8 x 29 Pocket Knife, 9’0 x 30 Pocket Power and the 10’11 x 28 Big Gun.
