Stretch says: With the high speeds these boards are meant to perform under, flex becomes uncontrollable and sketchy. We build our boards with 3 layers of structural foam and a carbon fiber internal frame. This makes the board very strong with torsion and flexural values being very little to none. We vacuum press the cores together and then hand shape the rails, bottom contours and fine details. Outer skins are then vacuum bag laminated onto the board before it gets sanded and then painted. The construction we developed for these boards allows us to build them 1 ¼” thick, thinner than any other tow-board. This lowers the center of gravity while affording the rider to smoothly penetrate the water. Our rocker for the tow-in board was highly influenced by our windsurfers, where both types of boards show urgency in utilizing and maintaining high speeds. The core in these boards is always pressed before it is hand shaped so that we consistently achieve an extremely accurate rocker. The full tail on these boards allows the rider to surf with the rear foot closer to the tail. By utilizing an efficient surface area in the rear of the board, one can surf faster without the lack of stability and still turn like a shorter board. All of our tow boards come complete with the external weighting system for the varying conditions found in huge surf. By building the boards as light as possible and then incorporating modular lead weights to the center of effort (between the rider’s feet), the board is allowed to react much quicker to dynamics in the wave face. This gives the rider a smoother ride and the feel that a light board would have while riding in much more powerful conditions. Tow boards come fully equipped with pads, straps, weight, custom art and hand foiled G-10 fiberglass fins by Curtis Hesselgrave.
With 363 liters, the Searcher is our largest SUP and is incredibly versatile. It’s perfect for heavier riders and will float virtually anyone…and their dog. The displacement bow cuts through chop and boat wakes. The round rails and performance rocker line make it perform much like a race board, but much more stable. Going on an expedition? The Searcher has 4 sets of tie-down inserts in the tail and 3 sets in the nose so you can take everything with you. Also for 2016 we’ve strategically placed 5 RAM mount inserts to give you the option to turn the searcher into the ultimate fish catching platform.
Comes with 8″ JL tracker fin.
The flawless rocker line and shape characteristics translates into effortless downwind runs. The 28″ width makes this board very forgiving for any size rider and allows the rider to get on a glide easier and to stay on a glide longer. Flat bottom from front through the center is a very low drag bottom shape that blends into a “V” in the tail for effortless rail to rail responsiveness.
Comes with 8″ JL Tracker fin.
