TECH

WE ENGINEER OUR PRODUCTS

We back our tech with engineering.

All boards are designed by professional engineers using the latest technologies and materials. Finishing is meticulously performed by hand, resulting in boards that ride the way they should.

FULL WOOD CORES

All boards feature an AA grade FSC certified full Paulownia wood core as this provides the most consistent flex pattern. Cores are initially machined using our CNC machine and further finished by hand.

ENGINEERED POLYMER SIDEWALLS

Sidewalls are hand poured using our special blend of flexible engineered polymers. They are poured in one step to eliminate joins and seams and create a water-tight edge. We add carbon on selected models to increase stiffness, toughness and impact resistance.

CARBON POLYMER FIN MOUNTS

The fin mounts on the entire board range are reinforced with our engineered carbon polymer for added stiffness, strength and durability. This material ensures that water cannot penetrate the core and provides a more positive connection between the fin and board.

FIBREGLASS CONSTRUCTION

Fibreglass boards are constructed using triaxial glass fibres applied by hand. We also use biaxial and unidirectional fibres to change characteristics such as board stiffness, flex and weight.

AEROSPACE GRADE CARBON FIBRE

Carbon fibre boards are built using aerospace grade carbon fibre. These boards are stiffer and lighter than fibreglass boards, resulting in aggressive pop and more response.

PREMIUM TOPSHEET AND BASE MATERIALS

As standard, our boards feature premium carbonium topsheet and base material with eye-catching sublimated graphics. We do all our graphics in house so design options are endless.

316 STAINLESS STEEL SCREWS

Footpads, fins and handles include 316 A4 grade stainless steel screws as standard. This grade of stainless steel works well in salt water environments as it features enhanced corrosion resistance.

ERGONOMIC FOOTPADS AND STRAPS

These footpads have built-in toe grips, arch support and a shockpad in the heel. The footstraps can easily be adjusted on the go and the unisex design caters for all adult foot sizes.

CARBON STRINGERS

We use carbon stringers in some of our fibreglass boards to increase longitudinal or torsional stiffness.

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS (FEA)

We use FEA to gain an understanding of how our cores flex, allowing us to optimise core thickness and placement of composite materials.
