…Lost Puddle Jumper HP (SHOP NOW) is a new, refined version of the super popular Puddle Jumper, fresh on our racks for Summer 2019. The original Puddle Jumper outline has been tweaked slightly in this HP version. By pulling in nose a touch, shifting the wide point a little further back while reducing the size of the tail block. The reason for these changes is to allow you to ride this shape less like a hybrid and more like your everyday shortboard.
The rails have been slimmed down particularly in the tail, which when combined with the deep vee out the back helps with grip and hold. It also gives you more control and confidence in it on rail at high speeds. The HP keeps a very similar, flat rocker to the original Puddle Jumper. This same rocker combined with the generous width and deep central concave gives you plenty of lift and squirt in smaller, softer waves.
The result is an ultra-fun, playful board that retains most of the paddle power, speed and glide of the original – yet allows for quicker direction changes and a more responsive feel underfoot. The new HP shape also gives you a lot more pivot off the back foot – meaning that you can take more of an up-and-down approach to smaller wave faces while still enjoying the motor-like feel of the original Puddle Jumper.
If you’re on the hunt for a small wave weapon for the coming summer, something fun to ride in less than ideal conditions or just a nice easy board to surf generally – The Puddle Jumper HP is definitely worth keeping on your radar. Come and check them out in store or grab one from us ONLINE
