New Joistik Surfboards models for Summer 2012 have just landed at Cooly Surf in Coolangatta. These include the new Protag high performance shortboard aswell as some grovellers and step ups. Come down to the shop and check out the Protag and Renegade models. These are what Australian Junior Champion Thomas Woods is currently riding around the Gold Coast. All of these models are also available to order as customs.
2011 saw the Protag become our best selling high performance model by some distance in Australia and Japan. It has also become the favourite model for pros and teamriders and has become the go to board for competition surfing and punting. The feedback has been fantastic. These boards are great in all conditions and will help take your surfing to the next level. The Protag favours speed and drive with explosive release off the tail, along with good recovery over the front of the board when landing airs due to the slightly wider nose. The rocker is slightly relaxed up front and adjusted in the back half to complement a smaller wave face, which together with tweaks to the rail line and an increase in concave depth, provides suitable drive, responsiveness and release in small waves.
