Who is the Jobe Ventura aimed at?
The Jobe Ventura 10’6 has a user friendly shape but with the added bonus of offering more performance when needed.
With any hard sup you need a rocker line suited to the task and this varies for each and every shaped board so there’s no one simple line. With the Jobe Ventura, you get a constant soft rocker line, that helps improve flat water experience, whilst giving manouverability when in small waves.
Jobe Ventura has a classic profile shape with a rounder nose and tail that offers up a level of stability, whilst maintaining a good speed if on the flat. That said it also makes it really easy and relaxed to enjoy surfing this board in smaller conditions.
For anyone going out in choppier water, they’ll find that the width is a real bonus as it locks the board down to a super stable platform. If you’ve come from a world of inflatable paddle boards you’ll definitely notice the extra connection between water and paddler.
On the deck we have got front bungees that are handy for packing the flip flops under or a small waterproof bag, but if you fancy doing some nose riding this could easily be taken off so you don’t trip over it.
Much like other hard boards, you’ve got thinner rails so you can feel more bite when on a wave, but with a board of 10’6 you really need to move about and learn to adjust your standing position to really get the most from it.
The single fin design on this board is deliberate as you don’t need side biters so a decent tool-less centre fin is provided to give a classic longboard feel.
Keeping the board looking pretty is something else we’ve considered so you get a rail saver, which will stop you bashing the rails up.
Our bamboo SUPs are made with the latest construction methods and techniques. The core is made of the lightest possible EPS foam which is the main reason for the board’s weight.
We laminate the core with a 4 ounce fiberglass layup than bamboo and on top of that fiberglass again. This results in an 8 ounce fiberglass layup on the top and bottom and even double that amount, 16 ounce, on the sides.
This makes the boards sides super strong and durable! Add to that the special railsaver tape that comes with Jobe bamboo SUPs, and there you have it: a super strong and ultra-light SUP-board!
