Science welcomes the 2021 range with a fresh new pro-model, the Shayden Shrader! This young gun is one of Australias best riders rising amongst the Port Macquarie rat pack, his smooth style and control is clearly portrayed in his signature model.

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/ CFT Stringer
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 vent 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.
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 tri-crescent is a clipped crescent tail with small complimenting compressions were the tri-quad meets the tri-crescent. The tri-crescent works to further engage the tri-quad and maximise speed and control.
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.
The contours are the slight indents in the deck of a bodyboard. Their job is to help you lock into the board as best as possible.
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
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.
