Earlier this year we released 12 prototype Zero Slot Hull Channel boards, and they Sold Out within a matter of minutes, so this time we've bumped it up a little to 12 boards per size!
We've also mainly offered the option of 42" on lots of our Limited Edition boards, so this one is available in 41.5"and 42.5".
The Torus Channel is an evolution of our Zero Slot Hull Channel.
Once again, we have continued with a variation of the Planing Hull Theory, whilst being mindful of the drive and hold required on a bodyboard.
On the Torus Channel, the wider points of the channel are at the nose and tail of the board. This allows water to be welcomed into the channel, then squeezed through the narrower centre point at greater speed, before released through the slight concave in the tail at a reduced pressure, much like the Venturi effect.
This channel shape also allows for increased lift around your shoulder & elbows while still allowing plenty of hold through your hips.
Because we still want the ability to surf slabby waves on this board, we have combined this channel with our Vax Trax Rail Technology for some extra rail hold in steeper sections.
Construction-wise, we've kept it pretty practical with PP Core / Stringer / Mesh / Surlyn Slick combo. This makes it very durable and pretty ideal for year round use in most Mid-climates depending on you preferences.
Fun Fact: If you were to continue drawing the lines of the channels beyond the board, they would eventually loop back into themselves to make the Torodial Shape.
