Let’s face it. You need to update your quiver of boards to include something for the summer time fun, or just for mediocre conditions in general. Chances are, you’ve got a step up in the closet collecting dust that you bust out only a few times a year, and you’ve got that high performance magic slipper that makes you feel like a gyrating spastic goon unless the waves are perfect. What you really need to do is get yourself a board that’s going to allow you to smooth out your surfing and really maximize the amount of surfing that you can actually do in mediocre conditions. Think about it, having the right type of small wave board will not only motivate you to surf more, but also improve your surfing because you’ll be able to really surf, not just hop around like a spazz, in a diverse array of less than stellar conditions, and most of all, just have more fun! Right here, we highlight three great boards from the Summer Jet arsenal that will have your summer time surf sessions poppin!

The Peeping Tom is a great board to have if you want to have fun surfing in mediocre conditions! With this board even the most weak and poor quality waves become fun. It paddles and glides like a fish, but it can still jam in the pocket like a shortboard. A great Summer time board, and a great addition to any quiver. The quad set up gives the board a great loose feel that is essential for making the most of small waves, while still maintaining drive when the board is on rail. If you want a board that can ride waves that you would normally need a longboard for, and you’re a fan of the glide of a fish, but don’t want the clunkiness, then this board is a must have! Comes standard as a quad. Large fins recommended for this board.
With the boar, weak, blown out surf becomes fun. It has low rocker, single to double concave with V out the back and a wide tail. It paddles great, gets into waves early, and crosses flat spots like it has a motor. This board is higher volume than a standard board and paddles better. Can be ridden any dimensions but the standard is 2 inches shorter, 1/2 inch wider, and the same volume as your standard board. Works great as a quad.
The Particle Accelerator is an ultra fast small wave board with a wider nose, low entry and exit rocker, a double concave out the tail, a wing swallow tail, and some really cool looking black rails. The wing on the tail allows for the tail to become narrower without having to add curve. This maintains that straight line that you want in the tail for the added projection, while pulling in the tail for added pivot in the pocket. All these things come together to make a super fast high performance small wave board!
All summer jet surfboards are designed on computers and cut on a CNC (computer controlled) shaping machine. Then they are all finished by the same shaper, Bill Gieger, an expert in the field, with over thirty years of shaping experience. This way we have compete control over every detail of the design of each board. We use the best materials made, including; US Blanks, Aerialite fiberglass, Silmar resin, and FCS II fin boxes. Standard on every board are carbon fiber reinforced rails on the tails, a 4oz patch on the bottom around the fin boxes, and a glossed and wet sanded finish, all intended to make the most durable boards possible. The standard bottom on our boards, unless otherwise noted, is a single concave in the middle of the board, going into a single concave with a double inside it between the front fins and ending with a slight double concave “V” at the tail. This bottom gives the best combination of lift, or speed, and control. Each design has different amounts of concave and “V” but the basics are the same. You can change anything you want.
