The Smoothie is a high-octane performance longboard built to excel in powerful, hollow waves. The pulled in tail fits well in the pocket, providing control through turns, while the increased rocker lends itself to high-performance surfing without compromising the ability to nose ride. While this board can be ridden in virtually all conditions, it is Ben’s go-to board in substantial surf when conditions get proper.
These lightweight epoxy constructions are 100% hand layups, and begin with an EPS foam core with multi-component carbon fibre stringer system, for high performance flex and twist. Proprietary designs employing internal carbon fibre components are arrayed in the deck and rails for precise flex control and strength.
The core shield PVC shell provides flexible protection to increase the longevity of the boards without compromising flex and twist characteristics. With a substantial amount of carbon fibre and fibreglass in the deck, bottom, and rails, these boards will outperform and outlast traditionally constructed polyester comp boards.
“When the waves are good, this is the board I turn to, every time.” – Ben Skinner
