What do you reckon? Looks good to me.

I’m really excited about this board, especially after making myself a few over the last 4 months! Super fast and fun in all kinds of waves, and I promise it will make the crappy days way better😄 “Official” description here— The Funformance design that will give you another reason to get into the water all summer long. The Astro Pop is designed to give you some extra spark and easy paddle in weaker, slower waves, while still keeping a performance edge and super fun to ride in good surf. Built off of the Astro, the retro fish weʼve been making for years, the Astro Pop has a more pulled in nose and tail, with a little wing to help pull in the last 4 inches of the tail which creates a lot of curve in the outline, adding maneuverability without sacrificing any speed. The bottom has a deep double concave running through to vee off the tail which makes the board get up on top of the water in even slower, weaker waves and still easily tip over onto the rail at high speeds. A mild beak nose helps keep the thickness up into the nose, but itʼs not overly chunky, more like a daily driver type board but with easy paddling aided by the flatter entry rocker. We recommend the Astro Pop as a quad, for speed, but it comes stock with a 5-fin setup to maximize versatility. Ride it short as you want (mine is 5ʼ5) and about 3⁄4ʼʼ to 1ʼʼ wider, with a thickness that gives you a bit more volume than your everyday shortboard.

Looks like FCS . I can make fins for that :-)

Jon does seem to like area reduction from the wide point


This really adds to the "ease" of riding - simplest way of putting it .

FCS like CI didn't offer JJF enough $$$ or didn't live up to his expectations.

Jon says " The bottom has a deep double concave running through to vee off the tail which makes the board get up on top of the water in even slower, weaker waves and still easily tip over onto the rail at high speeds."

There is no future without the past. You are right.

It's gotta similar vibe as your Modfish , but with a more pulled in tail outline . I like the little wing

Hi guys--- I am happy to report we have been getting lots of great customer feedback on the Astro Pop!
I think the design is great for getting speed in crap while still letting you carve around in decent waves. I took a 5'5'' Pop to Bali last month as a back-up plan for the smaller days, but ended up kind of addicted to it even when it started picking up.
I still have not tried it as a tri-fin, but expect that would add snappiness without too much reduction in speed.
I will try to put up a few better shots of them when we have (if I can figure out how on here) I know that airbrush kind of plays tricks on the eyes and throws off the outline viewing a bit

Good stuff, Jon.

Looking forward to more photos/info.

I can see a 5'10 coming as a replacement for my wing swallow Nugget.
