The BioDiesel adds to Roberts' Diesel class of boards a design that’s part race-ready performance and part efficient daily driver. They started with the Turbo Diesel’s rocker, outline, & foil and tuned it to create a high performance board that excels in average middle of the road surf. The BioDiesel is reactive in the pocket with another gear for creating and maintaining speed.
First they looked at the Turbo’s rocker and knew that its ability for catching waves, accelerating off the bottom, and arcing off the top made it a keeper. So, they kept its rocker profile and then lowered both ends on the BioDiesel to make it an even better paddler and have more drive in waves that aren’t that very steep or fast.
They then widened the Turbo’s outline from the middle through the tail so that the BioDiesel generates and maintains speed more easily with some added-in glide for flatter faced waves. One final feature they considered was the Turbo’s racy tapered medium rails. By carrying those over to the BioDiesel, it has that performance feel and easily gets on rail to take advantage of all its speed.
There is a $175 shipping fee on this board.
