SUP CONSTRUCTION

Carbon Fusion

Carbon Fusion (CX) is a multi-layer sandwich construction that's formed through the use of several vacuum bag processes. The goal of this construction is to build a light-weight, strong and performance orientated board. Consisting of two layers of carbon, multiple layers of fibreglass and unidirectional carbon tape applied to a medium density EPS core, the vacuum bagging process is done after each layer is applied to ensure the maximum bond is formed, without an excess use of epoxy resin. This process produces a superb product that will more than meet the requirements of paddlers who want to push their performance.

Molded Epoxy

Molded Epoxy (MX) construction delivers structural integrity through the high pressure molding of multiple components. The components being; a medium density EPS core, 5 layers of Fiberglass (3 x deck, 2 x bottom) and a special epoxy resin that’s mixed with carbon strands. Encapsulating the whole board, and forming an outer skin that bonds through to the core, this combination of materials is fused together for over 4 hours under constant heat and pressure. The result is a very durable, well weighted board, and the high pressure molding process ensures that each board is identical to our specifications.

X-1 Epoxy

X-1 Epoxy is a simple and effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core. The EPS core is cut directly from the shapers files, and once custom shaped, is glassed in the traditional hand layup method with multiple layers of woven fiberglass imported form the USA. This versatile construction is lightweight, affordable, and is particularly suited to manufacturing SUP's. X-1 Epoxy boards are most popular for their subtle flex and memory recall properties, which translates into a board that feels light and responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions.

X-2 Epoxy

X-2 Epoxy is a multi-layered sandwich construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and sheets of thin wood veneer wrapped around a nigh density EPS core. This construction method produces a light, extremely reliable SUP that's particularly strong on the deck. The durability and strength of X-2 Epoxy boards make them ideal for SUP's, surfers who like to travel or are new to surfing. X-2 Epoxy boards feel solid under your feet, perform incredibly well and maintain their appearance for many years.

Inflatable

Our Inflatable SUPs are made with the toughest river rafting technology. These boards will withstand years of abuse but are soft on the body and easy to get around on. The 1000 denier PVC will hold up to and from the beach, in the surf and on the river. The best part of the Inflatable SUP technology is that it preforms well in all conditions. Cruising on the lake, drifting down stream and of course surfing the local break. All of our Inflatable SUP should be pumped to between 15 and 20 PSI.

Soft Skin

Soft Skin was developed for surf schools and beginner surfers who required a safe, durable, easy to ride surfboard. Soft Skin is essentially a thick Polyethylene skin wrapped around the deck and rail of the board, combined with a soft slick bottom surface that keeps novice riders safe in the event of impact. Using a vacuum construction process eliminates peeling or bubbling and allows Soft Skin boards to withstand the toughest of treatment, while providing many surfers the opportunity to safely catch their first wave.
