All Indo Rockets come standard with 5 boxes so they can be surfed as a quad or thruster, but I prefer to ride all mine as quads these days.​

Developed from decades of surfing Indo's long, fast and hollow waves, the Indo Rockets are high performance rocket ships for when the waves get going.


And now with the FLV bottom contour, they are surfing better than ever. It's been a hell of a lot of work, taking more than a year of trying different rocker configurations to get the FLV Indo Rockets to where I want them to be.

But it's been worth it, with the latest IR's now having that beautiful smooth FLV glide under the feet, and the ability to turn much easier and faster off the top than the previous concave versions.

Many of my customers are surprised with just how easy these boards are to surf and with how fast they go. And while they're designed for faster and more powerful waves, their quick planing and ease of turning makes them a really fun, and surprisingly suitable board for smaller, softer waves. 


Over the last 12 months, the Indo Rocket has undergone an intensive overhaul as I've carefully integrated the FLV bottom contour into the design.

What made it such a challenge was that the previous concave version already surfed so well. The bar was already set high, but I needed the new FLV version to go even better.


So, for over a year now, I have been testing different rocker configurations of the Indo Rockets, trying to improve the beautiful balance of drive and ease of turning that the previous single into double concave versions already enjoyed.  


It took numerous builds, adjusting the rocker and the contours until I got it right, and my board rack is littered with versions that didn't quite cut it. But finally, after 12 months of intensive development and testing I can now say the new Indo Rockets are outsurfing the previous concave version.

They glide smoother and faster than the previous concave version, feel a lot freer, more responsive under the feet, and hook off the top significantly faster and smoother than the previous concave version.

If you want a seriously refined A level surfing machine, I'd head over to the order form. No matter how good or how new you are to surfing this board will make everything easier and feel smoother. A board that can be shredded or flow into effortless carves.
