Much more than an icon and a best-seller, the Mitu Pro Model is first and foremost Mitu’s board, and this means one thing: the board is always at the top of its game, year after year, just like the man himself.
- 100% dedicated to strapless riding
- Excellent in waves AND 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 are no shortcuts when he is testing. His approach is fueled by a lot of curiosity and an acute ability to analyse how the board works. 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 has to fulfil the dreams of what Mitu needs, it rips in all conditions.
The MITU PRO CARBON is available in 5 sizes from 5’2 to 5’10 and makes the most of its ultra-light carbon construction to create the ultimate strapless board with crazy potential where the light weight of the board will bring your tricks and surfing to a whole new level.
The MITU PRO CARBON takes advantage of an improved rocker line where the single concave is combined with a smooth and rounded kick accelerating towards the tail. This new tail rocker provides a more intuitive entry in the turns and a better hold when putting the board on the rail. The end result is an improved feeling when riding the waves, getting as close as ever to a natural surfing feel.
Combined with thin rails towards the rear, the fishtail offers the best combination between planing, stability, turning and pop.
This unique mix of planing, stability and manoeuvrability is what makes the MITU PRO MODELS so unique and versatile.
The largest sizes have a bit more emphasis on the planing ability and general stability, while the smaller sizes have more focus on manoeuvrability. 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 carbon fiber and some deck stringers for durability, we have designed some boards that will fulfil the most demanding riders.
Equipped with three Futures boxes, the boards come with a set of F-ONE FLOW RTM fins.
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.
