Our Core is Pacific Albus Wood. Vertically laminated. Can be compared with Poplar species but lighter and stronger. Bottom Glass: 600gr 0’ X 90’ Biax. Top Glass: -45’ X +45’ 420gr Biax. Centerline rocker strip of glass on the top. This stops any reverse flex.
Flex of the board is engineered. There is a ridge in the middle of the board on the deck peak of the core thickness taper. This keeps the rocker flatter between feet while riding and focuses the flex in the tips where it belongs , acting the same way as pre-stressed concrete does.
Sidewalls are poured urethane shore A 95 durometer hardness. WILL NOT SOFTEN IN HEAT like competitors using cheap Chinese Urethanes. This adds extra durability, protecting the wood against perforation and water infiltration due to shocks on the rails. Compared to ABS, urethane also helps having a better flex along the board rail. Fin holes are also poured urethane.
Single concave throughout with pressed channels in the tips. Rocker is between 41 and 49mm depending on the size of the board. The outline is from many years of experience and feedback. A compounding curve through the standing area into the tips. Softer edges right at the tips for better release in turns and carves.
The flex of the board is engineered. There is a bump in the middle of the board on the deck peak of the core thickness taper. This keeps the rocker flatter between feet while riding and focuses the flex in the tips where it belongs. The shape of the board makes it very versatile and user friendly as the rails taper at the tips and outline become straighter in the foot area. This allows for maximum bite and edging capabilities while remaining all round for any type of condition. Comfortable and smooth easy ride, it requires minimal effort. The flex and the pop of this board make it an all-purpose weapon, comfortable in freestyle and freeride riding while also being a hard hacker in the waves
