More than an icon or a best-seller, the MITU PRO MODEL is first and foremost Mitu MONTEIRO’s own board and this can mean only one thing: the board just as the man behind it remains firmly at the top of its game year after year.
- 100% dedicated to strapless riding
- Excellent in waves AND for freestyle
- Intuitive and playful in ALL conditions
- Available for everyone! (3 construction standards x 5 sizes = 15 boards to choose from!)
Mitu is very meticulous and involved when it comes to his Pro Model. There’s no shortcut with his testing. His approach is fueled by a lot of curiosity and a very fine analysis on how the board operates. Totally focused from day one, he invests all his experience into the tests. Offshore, side-off, onshore, Ponta Preta, Kite-beach, surfing, jumping, the board must tick all the boxes to be this all-in-one ripping machine.
With the compact outline, the deep single concave remains the DNA of the MITU PRO MODEL which is known for its easy planing, sharp acceleration and great directional stability. The bottom features a channel at the front of the board to help while landing fins front.
The maneuverability is really impressive and takes advantage of a much refined rockerline. Travelling back along the bottom of the board, the concave fades progressively towards the back marking a rounded kick in the rockerline which further helps making the turns smooth and effortless.
Combined with some thin rails at the back, the fish tail remains the best compromise between planing, stability, turning and pop.
The range includes 5 sizes from 5’2 to 5’10 with the smaller ones having more focus on maneuverability and speed control, while the largest sizes have a bit more emphasize on the planing ability and general stability. All share the same shape features with their specific outline to make the most of the wave’s energy.
The MITU PRO CARBON uses the HD foam carbon construction where the use of carbon fiber allows a lighter structure and therefore a lighter board to bring your strapless riding to the next level. Mixing HD foam with 45° bi-axial carbon fiber and some deck stringers for durability, we have designed a board that will fulfill the most demanding riders.
Equipped with three Futures boxes, the board comes with a set of F-ONE FLOW RTM fins. Taking advantage of its light weight combined with its amazing shape, the Mitu Pro Model is probably the ultimate strapless board.
This sandwich construction (high density foam + fiberglass + carbon) provides the boards with a strong resistance and a lighter weight.
The carbon fibers are laid +45° and -45° onto the board therefore avoiding any fibers at 0° to preserve the flex of the board whilst achieving higher mechanical performances. This construction improves the weight/resistance ratio of Carbon Series models which clearly feature among the lightest and best performing boards on the market.
As the strapless discipline develops and grows, so does the demands it puts on the new boards.
With higher jumps and tougher landings, the stresses applied to the boards have migrated towards the rails and we have reinforced some of our constructions with lateral deck stringers to make the boards more robust in these areas. These stringers are not full depth to keep the flex and feel of the board.
RTM technology stands for RESIN TRANSFER MOLDING. This process uses a closed mold to produce accurate composite parts.
The resin is injected in the mold after it is closed, with the dry fiber having been placed inside beforehand. The closed mold injection allows for great shape accuracy and the epoxy resin used make the fins stronger and more responsive providing a sharper feel on the water.
