Turning hard in the pocket and releasing on demand, it excels in carving, has fantastic upwind drive for onshore riding, and is versatile enough to pop strapless freestyle tricks with ease. The Carbon Innegra Futurelite system maximises strength without compromising flex or responsiveness. Our full deck grip with front and rear kicks gives maximum comfort and control. Commit to the wave and have the confidence to charge.

PAULOWNIA WOOD CORE
Lightweight and impact-resistant, paulownia is highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratio of any wood in the world. Ultra-lightweight, with high impact resistance, paulownia wood form a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin.
The flex characteristic of every twin-tip board is determined by the multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variation and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine-tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in the conjunction with the rocker line, plane shape view, and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.
DUALSHOCK EVA INSERTS
Under the main impact, areas help reduce denting around the heel. Our solution to reduce over-engineering, keeping the boards lightweight while retaining required flex.
Compatible with both FCSI and click-in keyless FCSII fins for more speed & drive, quicker acceleration, and more response from your board. Easily change your fins and tune your ride.
