Who is Johanne Defay?
Johanne Defay is not only one of the best surfers in the world but she’s also an inspiration to many women and young girls. She joined the SmoothStar team back in 2017 and is known for her dedication and hard work ethic to training and getting strong. Johanne is born and bread from a the tiny island in Reunion Island but competes under the french flag.

Thruster D Technology
The 31″ Johanne Defay model comes with the new SmoothStar Thruster D technology. The Thruster D is the latest in precision engineering from Smoothstar that gives surfers the ultimate surf feeling with much more hold.

What’s the reason for the deep concave in this surfskate deck?
The deeper concave enables riders to hold the rail more than other models and helps maintain compression through the turn, just like surfing.

 

Why is the Johanne Defay model very popular with SmoothStar team riders?
The reason for team riders loving to go for the Defay model is the diversity of styles this board offers. With the deep concave and wider tail it means that you can push harder through your turns, just like you would do when you’re surfing.

Is the Johanne Defay model for women only?
No! All of our models are suitable for both men and women. This particular pro model has been closely developed with top surfer Johanne Defay, but all men likes to ride it.

Why do people like riding the Johanne Defay with barefeet?
Because of the deep concave of the deck, that allows you to feel the heel to toe movement more when you’re riding bare feet.
Like when you’re surfing, people do not use footwear and the surf trainer is made to bring you the closest feeling to surfing. The grip tape has been created to enable you to use the board without shoes and make the feeling painless and gripy.

Smoothstar Surfskates

Smoothstar Surfskates Story of SmoothStar Surf skates For more than 14 years SmoothStar has been known to Australian Surfers as one of the best surf training products, outside the water. However, unless you have tried a surfskate SmoothStar, it is very hard to understand why it feels so similar to surfing. Trucks from SmoothStar replicates the surf feel because the front truck has a special turning device called the SmoothStar Thruster. This Thruster makes the front of the board loose so the board can turn and drive off the back trucks – the same as you would with surfboard rails and fins… you get the feel is “rail-to-rail” surfing on land. SmoothStar surfskate  Thruster invention is protected by patents. The turns are not sharp, floppy or stiff – they are “Smooth” but as radical as you want them to be and that is why we call it “SmoothStar”. About the SmoothStar Thruster Our Thruster is specifically positioned between the front trucks and the deck of the skateboard. The Thruster has a spring within the aluminium casing that provides resistance and reaction to the riders turning movement and wave. This spring enables the board to turn way beyond the ability of a normal skateboard. The combination of the springs tension and inside steel bearings enable for smooth transitions from rail to rail. This enables the rider to compress and push off each turn to generate speed and surf flow. Once the rider is pushing off from rail-to-rail, this creates a “self-propelling” motion, removing the need to push off the ground with the foot.
