The Stealth Bullet "Block" is a board that's a little bigger and thicker than the norm, This is Bullet’s (Steve Mackenzie) refined and slightly modernized template. This template already has a little bit of extra width compared to a lot of the Pro model bodyboards on the market, combined with a beefed-up slightly thicker finished core.
This board is ideal for anyone on the bigger side, but the extra volume would also come in handy for anyone on the smaller days.
Core - 1.9lb Polypro (Extra Thick) Stringer - 2 x CFT Stringer Rails - 55/45 Double Rails Channels - Graduated Slick - HDPE Deck - Wavecushion Air 8lb PE Tail - Clipped Crescent (Tail Piece) Additional Features - CNC Shaped, XFL Armour and Nose Bulbs. 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.
Slotted channels are a slender and deeper channel design with less graduation. These channels offer optimum control in bigger and heavier waves.
HDPE is a high density plastic. This plastic is hard wearing and very stiff. Whilst it will perform as per the norm, it is more prone to creasing when under heavy stress as for its high density properties.
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.
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.
