What the Mark Richards website says about the Rocket:

‘The Rocket has become incredibly popular. It was developed in response to customer feedback for an all-round board that can be ridden in all types of surf, and fits between a thruster and a fish. It is the perfect board for the customer who wants to own only one board for surf in the 2 to 6 foot range.

Features:

  • a full pointed nose with more area than a regular thruster, but less area than a fish;
  • a low nose rocker for planing speed and paddle power;
  • a single-to-double concave bottom with a deep double concave and an accelerated tail rocker which results in s fast responsive performance;
  • a double bump wing swallow which retains the area under the back foot but reduces the area in the board for good holding power when turning.

 
Standard fin set-up is FCS thruster but it can be custom ordered with an FCS Twin Fin set-up with an FCS stabilizer fin, or an FCS Quad set-up.’

What people are saying about it:

“That’s my board @markrichardssurfboards, it’s my 5th MR in my quiver now. I got this one to replace my 3 or 4 yr old Rocket. Only difference with this one is 6oz glass and 1″ shorter than my previous board. Spray is different too. I was so stoked with how my previous Rocket went, that I didn’t want to change much. This board goes unreal, I got Bells @ 4-5 foot about a week before the Rip Curl Pro started, I was getting waves from Rincon thru all the way to the shorey. You’re onto a winner with this design ????????” – user rutcho8 on Instagram

“It goes like a Rocket too under @searlsey feet too!” – user rob_mack74 on Instagram

“That’s is the board dimension I need!!!” – user alexram1963 on Instagram

Available Sizes:
