Product Description

Vessel's 2017 “RPM” model is a fastest hybrid board on the market. These new models are even stronger than their predecessors and feature Vessel’s new Carbon Infusion Technology (deck and rail wrap) which helps disperse flex and control points where it counts. As a result, these hybrid boards paddle and catch waves like a funboard but perform like a competition shortboard - just watch the video!

This hybrid model combines the zippiness and glide of a fish with the rail gouging ability and bite of a thruster. The RPM is built for speed and named “RPM” because it's super fast with continuous power and drive. The RPM features a deep single to double concave running through the bottom which helps it glide over dead sections. The unique wide outline of this board makes it perfect for summer surf. The low rails provide bite and control, while the wide swallow tail loosens things up and lets the rider throw the board around.

  1. Awsome

    Posted by Guff on 23rd Oct 2017

    Board looks great and is a nice weight. Took it out in some average conditions and it catches everything I paddle for. I cant wait to get it in some good waves

  2. RPM is a Rocket!

    Ordered on Thursday, arrived in Melbourne on Tuesday! Amazing delivery time but then had to wait until Saturday to give it a test. Its a bit smaller and less volume than I have been riding, so it took a couple of waves to get used to it but WOW! It hooked in on the third wave and just took off. A great board at an amazing price.

  3. Great value and pretty good quality
