Width: less than the width of your shoulders
Bottom Contours: Single
Rocker : Performance
This B2 is a custom shaped parabolic of eps (epoxy) construction; faster, lighter and tougher!
The parabolic rail causes the board flexes off the rail (as appose to twisting from the centre); providing more drive through turns, whilst the epoxy makes it tough, light and durable.
These boards are hand shaped from a parabolic railed eps blank by ‘US blanks‘ (a very tight knit polystyrene foam) and glassed with ‘Resin research‘ epoxy resin. As far as i am concerned, these are the best materials available
Please note: this is not sandwhich construction; but glassed traditionally. The difference is in the flex; the board feels more like a traditional board under foot, sitting well in the water. The only differece between this and the traditional material is that it is faster, stronger and lighter.
This board loves a good wave!! A narrower template through the nose and tail aids control whilst keeping the board light and responsive. This combined with the rounded tail leaves a board that will smoothly handle anything that’s thrown at it. Designed for solid surf.
These boards will be shaped with 50/50 performance rails
