2018 Infinity Production Lineup
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:42:40 PM »
*Disclaimer:  I’m an Infinity dealer and friend of the company. *

While I was out in soCal last week, Infinity held a 2018 product launch for their dealers. They also had their team riders there to talk about the input each had on specific models, ranging from surf to racing.

All I can say is WOW. Dave is constantly pushing the envelope on creativity and new designs. I asked him how he comes up with these design enhancements/innovations and his answer was: “Dude I literally fall asleep dreaming about board shapes.”  I believe it.

The SUP surf lineup is staying pretty much the same but there will be some new constructions offered, including an eco-build. They’re adding two inflatable Wide Aquatic models. The raceboards are where you will see the biggest new additions and changes. Super impressive and interesting designs. He listens to feedback from everyone, not just his top team riders. There’s some really cool stuff on the horizon for them.

I’ll post more specifics about each race model once I’m able to. Stay tuned.

My apologies to everyone who disturbed my worthless imput and/or didn't recognize humor attempt. PDLSFR  I'm sure all your 1290 posts extremely valuable, maybe you should stick to the topic and not be forum police and scolding other members with your comments.

I am glad you got out to the PPG's Johnny!

Good to hear that Dave is dream shaping..... real stoke in Mr. Blur.

Mr Big has a board I can actually try..... since most of his are 105 L, I am stoked that he has the 9'6 "New Deal" that falls in my wheelhouse, so I may pry his hands off it long enough to give it a run.

it happened  ;D

I am a sucker for DW even if our season is really short....beside the Downtown Flat deck is a lot sexier than the dugout :-)
At this stage I do not have $$$ for any anyway, and it will be several months (if they do) before making their way up North.
But yes if money was not object that would be of interest too. I could actually just get the first three in the picture in reasonable width :-)
