Quick Overview: “Astron Zot is a shorter wider thicker version of the All Round Nugget design.”
Astron Zot designs are completely unique in all aspects; the plan shape is a beautifully balanced ellipse, which blends with the thickness balance, combining with perfect rocker curves, flowing into the loaded dome located under the back foot for maximum control.
These features blend into the softened bottom rail, with a 60-40 balance; the softened bottom rail runs right through the board into the tail area, providing the board with greater holding qualities on hollow waves, eliminating the need to add extra fins.
The softening or opening up of the bottom, allows the rail to hold on steep walls giving the board a wider range of performance advantages, such as, more overall control, which eliminates catching of the rail forward and giving the single fin support, cancelling the need for any extra fins to be added; this, then allows the single fin to operate properly, doing very short quick arcs, carving from rail to rail, with constant flow and speed, with no catching or bogging of the rails.
These subtle changes have increased the board’s performance possibilities greatly; this allows the single fin to perform with greater control by the surfer, while carrying out the manoeuvres easily; where other fin combinations struggle to perform and make it difficult to control the multiple reactions, caused by the contours and release factors of the board.
Astron Zot designs are for wave size 1’ ~ 6’ in any conditions, their performance capabilities have to be experienced to be believed; very quick with fast positive reactions, short arc, up beat , FUN surfing.”
