Performance & Shaping
We originally set out to make a more durable surfboard with less environmental impact. We’ve achieved that. In doing so, we were also able to gain a whole new level of performance.
Our careful combination of superior materials – especially the use of our stronger, lighter and more buoyant foam – lets us make thinner and stronger boards that perform better. Because our foam doesn’t crush and powder under continual flexing, we can build flex into boards that won’t “go dead” after a couple of weeks of hard surfing.
We do not make “pop-out” or moulded boards. All our boards are hand-shaped by expert shapers. Our standard shapes are roughed out on a C&C machine first, and then hand-shaped. Over the years we have come up with standard shapes that work well for specific surf conditions and styles of riding. These shapes constantly evolve as we work to perfect them.
