THE ULTIMATE ELITE RACER FOR OCEAN AND FLATWATER SUP RACING
404 JUMP HULL DESIGN
The first feature most paddlers notice on the JUMP, is the precisely placed concave. This feature reduces belly drag and encourages planning during acceleration. This allows for a very smooth, very fast, and very stable sprint. Hard rails under the standing area and strategically placed Tail Rocker allow the JUMP to have increased stability when racing at high speeds without creating the normal excess tail drag most boards encounter during the natural pitch caused by acceleration. The sharp nose entry on the hull combined with increased reserve buoyancy above the waterline makes for a clean and efficient entry and still allow the board to rise up and over small waves with ease (JUMP). Unlike most other race boards, we have designed in the Raised tail Platform to prevent water from back filling into the cockpit during normal step back buoy turns. Staying dry and accelerating quickly is one of the reasons the Jump has been so dominant in long distance and technical races
UPGRADED DESIGN FEATURES of the JUMP
Narrow nose entry at water line and increased reserve buoyancy help the Jump easily rise up and over waves without losing speed or momentum.
Harder rails at the tall feel more forgiving in side–chop and creates a more Stable release.
A refined standing cockpit with more dug-out rails helps utilize the full width to give you more standing stability and easier rail control
Redesigned center drainage system gives you 50% faster drainage speed

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN PICKING YOUR CORRECT RACE BOARD MODEL AND SIZE
While developing the measurement for rider volume displacement, we realized that the true water line for any race board is not only determined by a rider's size, but also the size of the waves they would be riding in. Therefore we developed race boards that work for different sized riders and different sized waves
There is a common misconception that total volume is needed to calculate your desired board size. Unfortunately, total board volume alone is a very poor determining factor for board selection. Instead we calculate your Rider volume displacement and predict water conditions to accurately show a board's true water line. Using your boards true water line and your experience level, we can accurately suggest different sizes and models that will provide maximum efficiency for you and the paddling condition If a rider is under the suggested rider volume displacement, then the board hull will still perform at maximum efficiency. However, if a rider or water conditions exceed the predicted size, then they will not be riding the true waterline, and the hull design will not be used to its maximum potential. At 404, we are the first and currently only board company to suggest a board model and width based on your Rider Volume Displacement, measured skill level and predicted water conditions. We calculate your Rider volume displacement to accurately show a board’s true water line when riding. Using computer simulation, accounting for the natural pitch and roll of the board based on predicted water conditions (Surf, Flat, Upwind, Downwind), we can accurately determine if the paddler will be riding the designed part of the hull to maximum efficiency. This information is what is used to determine a rider’s optimal suggested Board model and Size.
The suggested width of a board is another poor measurement when it comes to board selection. When selecting a board to ride there are many other factors one should consider. First off, the width measurement of the board is not always taken in the middle of the board and is rarely ever taken in the same place. Instead, the width is taken wherever the single widest point of the board may be. Therefore, this measurement tells you very little about the board, its performance, or its stability without several other key factors. Second, most boards do not perform the same at different widths unless careful consideration is put into rider volume displacement, rail transition points, and board rocker locations. Although wider boards are inherently more stable, it is important to know rider volume displacement in order to properly adjust the hull to perform at maximum efficiency.
Each of our board models come in multiple width options. Since we design each HULL to function at a particular depth, we do not just widen our boards. We carefully redesign each width so that the Hull Design works with the board rocker, rail height, and true water line from the rider volume displacement measurement.
