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.
Graduated channels are a slow rise channel which redirect waterflow to create lift and allow the rider a better grip on the wave.
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“computer numerical 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.
