After years of shaping, testing, racing and creating world-class watercraft, Raaphorst took all of this cumulative knowledge into the shaping bay and what came out was the Bayonet 14.0 and Bayonet 17.1. A sleek, narrow and super-fast downwind board that worked amazing in sub-twenty knot conditions and increased top end speed in all conditions.
This board does not have F.A.S.T. for 2019. As many downwind races in the 14.0 class are fixed-fin, we opted to leave F.A.S.T. off to make sure the board is as light as possible. This board features a higher bow volume, lowered deck standing area and balanced outline. The board has a balanced outline and wider tail to enhance rail-to-rail stability.
