Understanding this bodyboard's technology
1.2lb D12 PP(Taiwan)
Lightweight extruded foam compressed at 1.2lb offering a light and flexible bodyboard. This foam is 100% waterproof and ideal in all climates.
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.
The quad exhaust uses two outer channels in the space of one. The two outer channels redirect water flow in order to maximise speed in the power pockets of the wave. The central raised area allows the user to maximise drive.
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.
Cellu-Cushion 8lb PE(Taiwan) Decking
Cellu-Cushion is a 8lb decking foam. It offers strength and ensures you get a longer lasting board. The design allows your body to lock with your board when riding, ensuring the board is comfortable to ride and hold.
The clipped crescent tail is the most popular crescent tail option. This tail will perform when driving, turning, carving and releasing. Clipping the tail allows the rider to maximise their drive and maintain control through the outer concaves and clipped areas.
Mesh is a diamond shaped wire like plastic that runs under the slick of a bodyboard. Mesh creates a durable reinforcement between the bodyboards slick and the core making it stiffer, stronger and less likely to crease.
Nose bulbs are a slightly raised area of foam on the nose of the board which create a comfortable spot to grip the nose.
