Manufacturing Country - Indonesia
Understanding this bodyboard's technology
Lightweight fusion foam compressed at 1.9lb offering instant recoil, enhanced stiffness and compression strength. This foam is 100% waterproof and ideal in mild to warm 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.
Single to Double Concave
The single to double concave tracks water early with a high single concave that flushes out into a quad concave bottom. Catching the water early and redirecting out to the final four concaves maximises the riders power and speed.
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 8lb NXLPE(Indo)Decking
Wavecushion decking is a 8lb decking foam. Much like the PE core, the PE decking is soft and flexible. Unlike the PE core, PE decking is used on all top end boards as for the flex and softness which allows riders to create a foam memory. Despite being soft and flexible PE is still extraordinarily durable.
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.
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.
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.
Short for“computernumerical control”, CNC machines allow shapers to cut boards perfectly to the mm. CNC machines offer the sharpest possible finish to bodyboard manufacturing.
Manufacturing Country: Indonesia/ Broady
The Broady bodyboard factory started in New Zealand in the 80’s but relocated to Indonesia in the early 2000’s. With two of the industries leading shapers at the helm, the Broady Factory uses CNC shaping, buzztech heat lamination and purpose built Aku Shaping in order to produce high performance bodyboards for most of the world’s leading brands.
