Tossing out the "no nose" theory of the past, I kept the outline up front wide and curvy as well. The round tail encourages flowing turns, and rolls tight in the pocket. The rocker is low throughout (for speed and glide) , but with an aggressive acceleration in the tail. The rail rocker "hangs" lower than the center line in the rear half, creating a radically deep concave and curvey rail line through the fins. This makes for extreme lift, and fast tight arc'd turns out of the tail.
The bottom rail is tucked all the way through the fins, so you can get it up on a rail and not slide out too easily. Riding this board is the most fun I have ever had in typical waist to chest high Trestles surf. I couldn't recommend it more. Ride it short n wide for the full effect!
HYDROFLEX SUPERCHARGER TECHNOLOGY
With Hydroflex Supercharger Technology, the flex of the board can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of compressed air within the surfboard. The board comes complete with an adapter and pump that connect to a valve on the board. By connecting the adaptor and pump to the valve, you can pump compressed air into, thus stiffening, the board… giving it less flex. To allow the board to have more flex, you simply press down on the needle in the valve with your finger to release air out. This allows the surfer to find their own optimal level of flex for the conditions, as opposed to boards that do not feature adjustable flex. A fringe benefit is that the outward pressure expels any water that might otherwise be absorbed if the board is dinged or cracked in the water. The boards are made from stringer-less EPS blanks and epoxy resin, but with a patented 3 dimensional glassing. The glassing anchors the fiberglass and epoxy resin laminate into the foam core, creating a root like structure, which greatly increases bonding strength and prevents delaminating. Advantages include…. Optimal flexibility and acceleration, high strength to weight ratio, no delams, and fewer breaks and buckles, completely customizable shapes and glassing, easy to repair and recyclable.
*The original Hydroflex pump is equipped with a custom pressure gauge and is included with the board for no extra charge.
