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 riderless contact with the water and therefore better drive and speed throughout all conditions.
Bodyboards with ribbed channels enhance rider stability. Ribbed channels are not as wide as regular channels. These channels are only small, but the ribbed effect, similar to the quad concave concept offers the rider higher levels of grip in the pocket of the wave.
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.
Full Crescent Tail
The full crescent tail is the most control-oriented bodyboard tail. This tail will perform when turning and carving. Using the full length of the crescent allows maximum mobility and water flow.
The tail piece is a separate piece of decking that goes on the crescent tail. Done for aesthetic purposes only and as oppose to rolling the deck all the way down over the tail.
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
Bodyboards that come from Indonesia come out of Nick Mesritz’s factory. Nick Mesritz is the owner and shaper of both NMD and VS bodyboards and has more than 20 years experience in shaping, testing and creating wavecraft.
