We have a flex testing machine that can gauge the recoil of a board. The higher the number - the more the board will want to react back to its original rocker line. While the smaller number means the board will be softer and more compliant on rails.
TIP/TAIL FLEX 64
CENTER FLEX 58
For the rider that wants the whole board to bend for the most surface area on a rail and knows the board won’t have a rigid fulcrum point that will help with the snap back.
Several of our boards are made out of a similar wood – but they differ in the grain direction. Sometimes the goal of a board is to have a softer mid section so we have the wood running horizontally and vice versa for a stiffer belly. The same goes for the ends of the board. No two wood board series are made with the same grain layup.
The most durable non-stick base material we have ever tested on features, and has increased glide speed on the water. Our exclusive base was formulated from a powder by heating the material in a sintering furnace above its melting point until the particles bond to one another. A higher purity compound that preserves its bond overtime. No obstacle is safe at cable parks with our jib friendly base material.
An earlier arc with a mellower degree will have a smoother, more consistent glide up the wake. A rider will be able to carry more speed up the transition and land tricks farther out into the flats. Not quite the straight up snap of its counterpart, but a rider will have a faster, more predictable, effortless take off.
