This board features a slightly wider, thicker template with a high wide point. This provides extra surface area allowing greater speed and manoeuvrability in smaller, everyday style conditions.
KINETIC CORE (PP)
A lightweight core that is fusion formed, delivering incredible flex properties, including instant recoil, enhanced longitudinal stiffness and awesome compression strength. It is also 100% Waterproof, ensuring it stays nice and light throughout your boards life. Ideal for anyone in mid to warm climates, and extremely durable for those who surf a lot!
2 x STRINGER
2 filament composite fibre tube inserted into the core of the board to greatly increase stiffness, recoil and durability.
This a high density, closed cell thermoplastic found on the bottom of the board. It increases performance, while also greatly increasing durability by protecting the core of the board.
The preferred Deck Skin of our Pro Riders as it has less effect on natural flex of the core. Also provides a little more grip than IXL Deckskin.
The most popular bodyboard tail. The clipped crescent tail provides the perfect mix of hold, drive and responsiveness when you need it, in all types of conditions
These are contours found on the slick side of the board, near the tail and close to the rails. They are designed to give you rail control and making the board less likely to side-slip.
55/45 TOP CHINE RAILS
The two IXLPE Rails provide extra strength, while a single Top Chine rail provides some old school flair.
The 55/45 Rail shape allows a touch more rail to be in the water, allowing for greater control.
Deck & Nose BuLBS
Deck & Slick side bulbs on the nose of the board to provide extra grip in critical situations.
As a general guide, a bodyboard should go to the rider's belly button. apart from that, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to choosing the correct size board. Generally bigger boards are faster, but not as easy to control, and generally suited to smaller waves and beginners. On the other hand smaller boards are a bit harder to generate speed, however, have greater control and are ideal for bigger waves and more advanced riders.
As a guide, please refer to the table below. If you're a beginner, you are probably best suited to a size in which you fall in the lower end of the weight range. ie. 40kg beginner woudl be best suited to 38", not 36".
