OverviewThe Simmer Helix is a modern freewave board that combines electric high wind freeride performance with the ability for exciting jumping and easy access turning in waves. Anywhere there is wind and water you can use this board to maximize your fun. The new Helix has a completely re-designed outline, with a compact but classic looking nose and a wider curvier rear section that ends in a cut away style v-form. This new outline maximizes a light and nimble straighline feel while also enhancing snappiness in waves, whether in single fin or thruster mode. Since the Helix is such an easy board to sail, it is the perfect choice to get into wave sailing. The Helix comes delivered with a Freewave single fin, but we also recommend a tri fin configuration as an alternative fin setup that enhances wave performance. With a single fin, the board is a fast and effective performer, that will give many freeride boards a run for their money. With the tri fin setup the board becomes a versatile freewave performer that combines amazing planing performance with the best possible jumping threshold and an ability to handle waves from small onshore slop to serious sideshore overhead lips. Our tailored fin selection, fin positions, and double or single back strap positions for each size complete the uncompromised convertible set up.
All 2020 boards feature a hot-coat paint finish. This process combines the colour pigment with the outer layer of a hard epoxy gel coat, this improves the board colour longevity, making it almost impossible to stratch off, it produces an extremely UV-resistant coating that ensures the boards colour resists fading in strong sunlight, all of this whilst saving weight by replacing the base coat paint, and two layers of top coat paint
The Electric Flex Technology
Our layup, construction, and reinforcement are all placed in where user needs and they all work in together to create the optimal stiffness to weight ration. The construction moves with you, rather and against you, which makes the board feel more lively in every movement. We call this technology Electric Flex. For our wave boards we use 45 degree carbon layup for maximum the strength and flex and for our flatwater boards we use 30 degree carbon layup for more vertical strength. Basically, flex and stiffness where its needed. The main features of the construction is the PVC Sandwich stringer. This is the spine of the board which absorbs and distributes the force from impacts throughout the boards entire construction. This eliminates unnecessary breakage as stress is shared between the entire hull, creating a much more durable construction. The stringer also helps to maintain the rocker curve during manoeuvres.

HELIX 106 / 116 STANDARD FIN SETUP // SINGLE FIN
Review• Courbe de rocker très rapide pour des vitesses élevées et un départ au planing précoce aussi bien en configuration tri fin que single.
• Outline doux pour de la prévisibilité lorsque l’on appuie fort dans les virages.
• Outline plus larges avec un arrière pincé pour des virages percutants et du contrôle dans le clapot.
• La moitié avant de la planche est particulièrement mince pour un ride vivant et de l’accroche dans les virages puissants.
• Double concave pour un passage de clapot plus doux et des virages accrocheurs, mais avec une section plate entre les straps pour un ride plus vivant.
• Shape optimisé pour un seul aileron.
