WE WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT SURFBOARDS

Each of the 31 pieces used to construct our surfboards are new materials to the surf industry. 30 years of experience crafting and riding high performance environmentally friendly composite surf, skate and snowboards went into designing our unique Waterboard process, materials and shapes. Each fused homogenous surf structure is handcrafted in the USA with a focus on performance and environmentally friendly manufacturing and materials. Only stainless steel fin screws remain the same. Waterboarding is now fun and healthy.

Details:

  • LIGHTWEIGHT POWERPOP AIRSPRING CORE

    Our exclusive closed cell alloy formula will not absorb water, is springy like a trampoline, contains up to 50% recycled content, and uses ozone friendly blowing agents. All offcuts go back into the process of making new blanks. This is a new formula that didn't exist a year ago.

  • NEW LVR43 HIGH REBOUND MATRIX

    Instead of toxic industry-standard polyester or old-fashioned epoxy, we use a new chemistry that has higher elongation, extreme ding resistance, and responsive rebound.

  • 2D2D VOLCANIC ORGANIC BASALT HONEYCOMB TECHNOLOGY

    Strong, light, lively, impact resistant, resists heel dents, additive free, volcanic organic pop. Damn Difficult 2Ding!

  • LIB TECH LEASH PLUG

    Leash plugs feature anodized 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum pins and a super light fiber-composite cup.

  • ELASTOMATRIX PERIMETER DAMPENING WEB

    The metallic fibers on the rails are rubberized to give the boards a silky smooth ride even in choppy conditions, and are Dang Difficult 2 Ding (2D2D).

  • MO BOX SYSTEMS

    Micro Option adjustable positioning, chemically and physically integrated, FCS™ compatible.

  • MAXIMUM INTENSITY LEADING FOIL M.I.L.F. FIN SYSTEMS

    Each board includes 4 adjustable fins featuring 2 M.I.L.F. Technology side fins, 1 Lib Standard Trailing fin, and a special bonus Spinfly Trailing fin.

  • Are the fins adjustable?
    Yes! Industry leading 5 /8ths of an inch fore and aft adjustable positioning, chemically and physically integrated, compatible with Pro Box, FCS, and all FCS dual tab style fins. Start by positioning fins in the center of each micro-option slot. SCREW 6 TIMES BEFORE SURFING. You can fine-tune for wave conditions or your surfing style. Bring fins closer together for looser surfing, spread fins apart for longer arcs, or play with asymmetric fin positioning just because you can. This waterboard comes with a bonus spindly trailing fin which is fun for extra glide speed in small waves, spinning and flying. *Always claim any spinning activity whether intentional or not*

  • Is it epoxy or polyester?
    Instead of toxic industry-standard polyester or old-fashioned epoxy, we use a new chemistry we call LVR43 HIGH REBOUND MATRIX that has higher elongation, extreme ding resistance, and responsive rebound.
  • What is the core?
    It is a brand new core called, LIGHTWEIGHT POWERPOP AIRSPRING CORE. Our exclusive closed cell alloy formula will not absorb water, is springy like a trampoline, contains up to 50% recycled content, and uses ozone friendly blowing agents. All offcuts go back into the process of making new blanks.  This is a new formula that didn’t exist a year ago.
  • What are your surboards made of?
    We have completely redesigned the surfboard manufacturing process from the bottom up. Our new process shares nothing in common with contemporary surfboards and snowboard manufacturing. Over 30 intricate pieces go into each board, yet only the 10/24 stainless fin screws are status quo to the surf world.”“With our new process called “Isotropic Fusion” we are building super ding-resistant boards that have high energy return (liveliness) and a silky-smooth timbre even in choppy surf. We have a new foam chemistry, new fibers, new vibration dampeners, a new matrix, new fin boxes, our own fins, even our own lightweight leash plugs, and much friendlier manufacturing methods that have eliminated sandpaper, tape, paintbrushes, dust clouds and toxic solvents.
  • Who shapes them?
