BOARD INGREDIENTS

THE ENDLESS PURSUIT OF LIGHTER, STRONGER, AND SNAPPIER
MAGIC CARPET

We are always sourcing new fiberglass materials trying to find that perfect weave that allows just enough resin to bleed thru and adhere to our Magic Carpet

DIAMOND GLASS

Fiberglass made in the shape of a diamond – helps transfer the energy of the board from the tip to the tail as a rider travels up the wake. Our secret concoction absorbs more energy before rebounding it. A lightweight diamond shaped woven construction offers less swing weight and increased feel on the water from the board.

PAULOWNIA WOOD

Made from renewable trees – a cable friendly Paulownia timber delivering a snowboard influenced kick off the wake, and unique ollie and press on rails.

MOD POUR

An ultra stiff, lightweight, super saucy core – this demanding alternative foam is made from our exclusive blend of atoms. The highest strength to weight ratio we have ever tested – setting the standard of the most refined recipe of foam out there.

MUTE CORE

A wood board without the noise of a wood board. We added poured urethane throughout the tip and tail of the new Bill board. The result is a core that dozes thru the water more than its foam counterpart – but without the chatter of wood.

FLEXBOX

As a company owned by riders we have constantly listened to the needs and requests from the rider. We came to a point where not everybody is happy with one traditional flex zone because of their personal riding styles. So we analyzed how a broad range of riders ollie, flex, and release off the water or features. We created one board shape and construction made with two entirely different pressure points. The result was Flexbox 1 and Flexbox 2 available on the most advanced park board – Kinetik Project.

M6 INSERTS

The Euros have it figured out. A higher thread count means more hold at a shallower depth. So now we can go to thinner profiled boards with a shorter insert without sacrificing boot lock down. The result is boards with more feel and contact on the water. Available on every series.

 

LOW FRICTION BASE

Developed for the most amount of glide speed in high-end boat boards. 

AIR CORE 2.0

In addition to having the least amount of swing weight she packs a mean punch in the lively department and has more contact and feel for boat riding than its predecessor with the addition of I-Beam.

KRYPTO CABLE

Different fibers are brewed up and then woven together to make a stronger compound. The Krypto Cable surrounds the profile of the board and is fused together with our core. Combined with our monocoque laminated glass, this cable makes the sidewalls the strongest part of the board – not the weakest. Available on every series.

SPEEDWALLS

Vertical poured urethane creates more top water speed and a durable bumper from those floating menaces at a cable park.

MONOCOQUE

A wrapped glass from the bottom to the top so the flash line is no longer the weak point of the board – and is now the strongest. A more durable construction and a torsionally stiffer ride. Available on an abundance of everything at the Ronix plantation.

SINTERED BASE

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.

NU CORE

The world of wood. In short, most of our boards are using a variation of foam – foam has more life to it, and more feel.  But sometimes we are making boards that are so thin – in the case of the El Von Videl Schnook, Bill and Kinetik Project – that if we stayed with wood there isn’t a resistance point.  This point is what allows a board to rebound back out of a press or to start an air trick.  With the Kinetik Projects using Flexbox it is even more magnified – our riders didn’t have the ability to control a press using a foam core based on how much more you can exaggerate a press using Flexbox.  In short – sometimes wood is good – these are 3 series where that is the case.

I-BEAM

A second piece of glass wraps thru the core creating an additional strength point.  So you have a rigidity unlike anyother core we have made still with the dampening qualities of fiberglass.  The result is the snappiest construction with softer landing than any carbon board out there. The holeshot response of carbon – the feel of fiberglass.
