The Jaco is an all-around or hybrid shaped board that is great for flatwater paddling and can handle some surf. The nose is a rounded planning hull designed to provide maximum paddle power and to glide or plane over top of the water as opposed to cutting through. The Jaco comes in several sizes to accommodate different riders as well as intended use.
The Jaco has an EPS foam core, 3 layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin, dark and light wood veneers on the deck and bottom for added strength and appeal, a carbon fiber reinforced deck in the standing area of the board and a layer of Kevlar around the rails from nose to tail. The carbon fiber deck reinforcement helps to reduce pressure dings from heels, knees, etc. that can form over time. The Kevlar rails add an extra layer of strength on the rails where most impacts occur. It comes with 3 removable fins, plenty of bungee tie downs for your gear, a deep center hand grip for an easy grab and carry, maintenance free vent plug and a camera mount on the nose to catch the action.
Price and availability vary by size. Pricing increases $25 for every 6 inches in length.
