For Freeride boards, we divide constructions into S-glass, and carbon. Each of these constructions can be made in light/regular/hardcore version.
is our most popular construction that works best for the majority of riders. It’s a Combination of S-glass, biaxial carbon and Dyneema fibers which are strategically positioned where their characteristics are most needed- X-carbon construction over the standing area, Dyneema nose and an additional layer of s-glass on the rails. It offers the best combination of strength, impact resistance and price.
S-glass construction is available in 3 versions:
LIGHT: our lightest construction where board weights can get under 5 kg. Suitable for wave riding oriented riders who don’t jump much.
REGULAR: most all-around construction. Combines low weight, high strength, and good impact resistance. Suitable for all types of riders and all conditions.
HARDCORE: our strongest s-glass construction, made for big jumps and heavy landings. Suitable for riders who jump a lot. Build to last.
If you need a responsive board then carbon is the right option. Strong for big surface area hits (landings) and extra stiff (be sure your knees and ankles will like it). We recommend these constructions for freestyle, slalom, freeride and bigger freewave boards, where lightweight and high-performance response is important.
Carbon construction is available in 3 versions:
LIGHT: Full high-grade biaxial carbon bottom and deck. These boards are perfect for all who appreciate light, stiff and reactive carbon feeling. More fragile than S-glass constructions and weaker because of high stiffness. Ideal for those searching for super early planning and high-performance oriented board that will be handled with care.
REGULAR: full biaxial deck and bottom with additional plain carbon reinforced deck, this construction is stronger than Light version and therefore better for boards that will be jumped more and ridden harder. Perfect for freestyle boards and slalom boards.
HARDCORE: Full biaxial carbon deck combined with s-glass and unidirectional carbon bottom. Super strong carbon board that can take some big jumps and flat landings. Ideal for HC freestylers who abuse their board in power moves.
Each product is good only as its weakest part. For this reason, we take a lot of effort to take care of every possible detail.
foam comes from a factory that is only 3 km away from our workshop. Together we developed and tested a special EPS foam that has the best characteristics for a windsurfing/SUP/paddle board. Due to the short travel distance of this voluminous, we are proud that we make a smaller negative impact on the nature that makes windsurfing a special sport.
We use highest grade divinycell foams in different density and thickness.
FOOT-STRAPS AND SCREWS
We make use of our own developed inox inserts that come with all of our boards. Over the years this system has proven to be 100% reliable and you won’t ever experience a broken screw or insert.
We use 4 screws per strap on the front and back foot-straps. We usually recommend 2 insert positions for back and front. More inserts are possible but usually not needed. Regular stance on wave boards is 42,5/45/47,5 cm, but all other options are possible.
You can also choose only one position as it saves some weight. And most people prefer just one foot-strap position anyway.
The board comes equipped with soft, durable and adjustable Flikka foot-straps. One important advantage of our custom boards is the flexibility to choose your own foot strap width. Regular is 15cm, but you can order a smaller or larger width.
You can choose white or black footpads with the option to have built in heel bumpers. There is also the option to choose white with tail-kick (no heel bumpers).
You can choose between a regular valve screw or a Gore-Tex valve. Both options work fine and it is up to your preference what your board will have. Gore-Tex valve breath air all the time, so the pressure is always optimal. It is recommended by the supplier to be replaced every two years.
