Ronix Carbon Air Core 3 - Type 8:12 Skimmer Wakesurf Board | Shipping Soon
A new responsive, thin profiled, skim outline masterpiece. A full-carbon construction with more drive and added snap while riding switch.
A NEW RESPONSIVE, THIN PROFILED, SKIM OUTLINE MASTERPIECE.
The skimmer of choice for the widest range of riders in the Ronix lineup. The Type 8:12 is quickly becoming a factory and team favorite. For the surfer looking to advance their riding and learn the fundamental tricks of skim style wake surfing. Shuv-its, three shuvs, or body varials are easy to learn on the Type 8:12 because of the parallel board outline. By increasing the width in the nose and tail, the shape of the board carries more top water speed and lands with a forgiving feel. Additionally, the overall rocker profile is low allowing for increased pocket speed meaning more saves of the wave and attempts at tricks. The Type 8:12 shape started in our 2023 Flyweight Pro construction. New for 2024, it gets the added benefits of our best-selling Carbon Air Core 3 layup. This includes increased rigidity for speed and stored energy for more pop. Kick your wake-surfing addiction up a notch. The best all-round, traditional-feeling skim in the line. A new take on a familiar skim feel that makes for a smooth transition into learning new tricks.

A fast, responsive style of board where the rider’s position is centered with a more balanced body. These sharp rail, thin profiled boards react quicker for people that don’t have a lot of time to waste. Preferred by surfers that like to have more feel with their board itself – and not just on fins. They can break free easier for 360’s on the water or shuvits off it. A more forgiving style of board when riding behind a steep wake because you typically ride this style of board at a shorter length (making it less likely to dunk the nose). Because of how speedy these models are – you can get away with a shorter, lightweight length.
For riders that like a little bit of everything. They want to generate power through their bottom turns, but still be able to leave the waterline quickly and easily. A growing style of wakesurfing designed for bigger airs leaving the wake but can still lock in for a proper cutback.
Toss some buckets with some smooth, linked turns inspired by your favorite saltwater surfer. Traditional surf shapes have a thicker profile and a mellower rail/bevel allowing a rider to pivot a turn more from their back foot and are best ridden with either a deeper fin, or multiple fins. Riders usually apply more pressure on the back half of the board and generate more force through a turn. Still very capable of doing tricks on and off the water – just with a fluid like feel.
