Understanding this bodyboard's technology
1.3lb Polypropylene is a lighter density than the standard 1.9lb Polypropylene. This lighter density offers higher levels of flex and recoil and thereby control. Perfect for cold climates or for the control freak.
High volume cores have a higher compression of foam and density through them which allows for higher levels of buoyancy. This can in turn transfer into more speed and less flex.
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.
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.
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
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.
