These lightweight epoxy constructions are 100% hand layups, and begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fiber stringer system, for high performance flex and twist. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fiber components are arrayed in the deck and rails for precise flex control and strength.
This board has come from blending the best bits of the Missing Link and the Saving Grace, hence the name “The Blender”.
I designed it primarily for flatter slower waves, with faster hollow sections, just like the wave in Riyue Bay in Hainan Island Off southern China.
This board still has high performance features, but it is wider all over, with a more relaxed rocker. The bottom starts with a single concave in the nose, flowing straight into a subtle double concave through the centre rolling out into big rolled V inside the slight double, making this board a dream to surf on the nose and tail, it really feels like easy surfing. It turns with flow and speed and will glide through any fat section with ease, and on the nose it just locks in.
An easy board to surf suiting all abilities and all conditions upto 4-5ft.
I first rode this board in the 2015 WLT in China, and finished 3rd in the world. So I can assure you this board works!
