Understanding this bodyboard's technology
China PP Lightweight beaded foam compressed at 1.9lb offering mild rigidity and enhanced buoyancy. This foam is 100% waterproof and ideal in all temperatures.
Carbon Fibre/ CFTStringer
Lightweight filament wound carbon composite rod offering rigidity and durability.
This rail setup leaves less of your rail in the water and offers the rider less contact with the water and therefore better drive and speed throughout all conditions.
Slotted channels are a slender and deeper channel design with less graduation. These channels offer optimum control in bigger and heavier waves.
The contours are the slight indents in the deck of a bodyboard. Their job is to help you lock in to the board as best as possible.
Surlyn plastic is thin and durable making it the most popular top end slick. Surlyn plastic will bend and stretch before it creases or snaps. This is a must have for intermediate through to advanced riders.
Wavecushion decking is a 8lb decking foam. Much like the PE core, the PE decking is soft and flexible.
Bat tail bodyboards are less curved in their profile, have a much wider finish and employ a‘W’looking tail. The overall idea of this concept is to provide more surface area to land on, more release through the tail shape and more speed through the emphasised hull. These tails can be a lot harder to control however, as for the limited hull area.
Manufacturing Country: China
Most, if not all, entry level bodyboards come out of China. Mass produced for Summer, these bodyboards are made for beginner level bodyboarding in the shore.
