MOJO 2016 Models

Up to this point the re vamped Pipedream label has concentrated mainly on smaller wave five finned fishes. The introduction of the Mojo is a slight departure from this norm with an accent on higher performance and increased versatility. It is true that with the 5 fin combos on the market today boards have a greater range of wave sizes they can tolerate. The Mojo is certainly a leading design in this vernacular and is capable of being nursed in double overhead and still lively in waves as small as 3 ft. Sporting the tried and tested Bourton Cathedral Hull the Mojo will paddle well above its weight guaranteeing an early in and will allow one to surf in either extremes without having to suffer an overdose of foam. Combining a con vee bottom shape and healthy tail lift the wider and flatter nose entry softened with the lifting power of the hull, the Mojo is one of the rare designs that give great paddle AND great performance.

The evolution of the Mojo continues, and market forces are putting pressure on refinement and reduction of volume. Being an EPS core this design can shed some volume and indeed its hydro-dynamic paddle attributes support this leaning as well. The new 2017 model has shed on the average of 4 litres to make it a highly refined high performance roundtail five finner capable of ripping shreds with the right rider on deck. The rails have been lowered even more to facilitate the extra buoyancy of the foam, so as to allow longer driving turns and more vertical spontaneity.   What I am trying to achieve with the new update is to encourage well above average surfers to embrace this design, but not to leave the average guy in their wake because the paddle in these things is still more than enough for those a little slower to their feet.
I have moved across to using stringers in my new Mojos meaning I can go a little lighter on the glassing to keep the weight akin to an accepted EPS standard. Having said that the deck has in strategic areas 4x4x6 glass set diagonally, so combined with a stringer the board for its light weight- has some strength laterally and dent wise. Fin system also has gone with the times sporting the new FCS11 system.

The new 2017 Mojo has one layer of 4oz set diagonally on the bottom with 2 x 4oz diagonal on the deck. Additionally it has a 6 oz carbon ribbed wedge set from nose to tail. This pad is placed where there is the most foot work. As mentioned above the new Mojo employs a stringer for added lateral strength. All Mojos have a black rail spray. More colours will be coming in the future.

5.10 X 20 X 2 5/16 = 29.06 LTS

6.2 X 20 ½ X 2 7/16 = 32.69 LTS
6.4 X 20 ¾ X 2 ½ = 34.7 LTS
6.6 X 21 X 2 9/16 = 37.24 LTS
6.8 X 21 ¼ X 2 5/8 = 39.61 LTS
