EASIER TO LEARN ON – MORE FUN TO RIDE
Our dual-purpose board: for kids to learn to windsurf on, for adults to blast and freeride on.
– New graphics that remove the yellow paint on the rails helping them look better for longer –
– Yulex Footstraps. The world’s first footstraps made with natural rubber –
The AtomIQ Duo compared to their predecessor has a slimmer shape that is more stable to learn on and more maneuverable and responsive to free ride on. They are 13% wider, which makes them more stable, with a more even volume distribution. They are using a crisp and stiff 3DX construction.
The AtomIQ Duos are also 20% thinner than their predecessor. A concept originating from the CarveIQ’s. The thin profile lowers the boards’ center of gravity, making the board more sporty, more stable, more controlled and more reactive.
FULL EVA DECK
The large soft EVA grip on the deck makes it comfortable and safe for kids. The grip without the cuts or rashes.There are also multiple footstraps inserts positions to allow for every level of sailing, from beginner to intermediate and advanced.
The new generation Drake Slick footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance. Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel and features strap-size indicators for easy adjustments.
MULTIPLE FOOTSTRAP POSITIONS
The AtomIQ Duo features footstrap positions for all levels of riders, from the entry-level inside positions to the outside expert positions. Together with the full EVA pad, this makes it the perfect board for the family.

It’s a really smooth ride and feels nice under your feet. The AtomIQ Duo can handle really light conditions and really windy conditions. In light winds, it’s easy to sail because it’s floaty and stable. It’s so buoyant you could even be an adult and use it.
When it’s windy, you can’t feel the chop. The board isn’t jumping around and it just feels like you’re sailing on a straight, flat river, in Gnarabup (Margaret River) for example, when I go out on my 3.6 Severne Synergy sail, I can go fast even when the conditions are rough.
And it’s also really fun for when you have friends – because lots of people can go on one board. We had 4 of us on it and we still didn’t sink.
FIN SET UP
The AtomIQ Duos come with two fin boxes and two supplied fins: a Drake Freeride Power and a Drake Shallow 41 centre fin. The Shallow 41 is a compact fin that helps kids and beginners stay upwind but can also be used as a tail fin for intermediates. It delivers as much power as possible in the shortest size, making it the ideal fin for learning.
The Drake Freeride Power is a CNC G-10 fin with a thin tip for speed and lift control. Its upright rake and thicker base provide maximum stability, low-end power and traction for all sail sizes. The swept tip promotes easy jibing and upwind capabilities.
Remove the centre fin, fit the plug in and you have a full performance freeride board.
The Atomic Duos are available in our innovative 3DX technology. 3DX stands for three dimensional biaxial glass microsandwich construction. Both deck and bottom are wrapped in 45 degree biaxial glass fiber wetted out with an expanding foam epoxy cured under high pressure. The biaxial glass gives a crisp, stiff feel with flex for choppy conditions. The foam epoxy creates a 2mm skin thickness for a microsandwich effect: tough and strong.
