Our 3-dimensional wood core CNC milling gives us unsurpassed accuracy in determining the areas of thickness in a board's profile. Flexcavation create strategic machine arcs and channels on the top & bottom of each board which activate areas of flex and help maintain strength and integrity in each board. Less is more and by milling flex patterns and channels into specific areas of the core we create the desired ride without adding unnecessary features or materials.
Paulownia Woodland i-Core
The core is really just that - the heart & soul of a board. It determines many of the riding characteristics even before we start experimenting with different layups and space age composites. All our boards use vertically laminated Paulownia Woodland i-Cores from nose to tail, rail to rail, because of it's consistent energy, snappy response, and unsurpassed durability. You won't find any notches or irregularities in our wood cores. The Paulownia Woodland i-Core produces lively pop season after season.
Sandwich construction can be a more labor intensive process vs. traditional compression molded foam wakeboard construction and it shows our commitment to work towards manufacturing progression for the enjoyment of wakeboarding. The process of stacking layers of composites allows us to experiment with combinations of materials, different rocker lines, variable flex, and board control. The result is a more durable, consistent, lively, and exact outcome of the shaper's intended design when compared to their traditional foam or hybrid counterparts. We use sandwich construction exclusively for our entire line of wakeboards.
NEW Nylon Base
Engineered by one the world's leading suppliers of durable plastics, our NEW Nylon base offers the lightest weight solution for visual applications while still holding up to everyday riding abuse. Nylon bases offer the fastest catch-free glide possible and extreme visual clarity. Nylon is superior base composite vs. other traditional wakeboard base like PBT or TPU.
Tapered Tip & Tail
This is our standard in core profiling. We use an even core thickness between our binding inserts to create a more abrupt response off the wake. From the outside of the inserts moving towards the nose & tail of the board, we mill a more lean core profile. We believe this thinner profile in the tip & tail creates powerful snap, insanely soft landings, a more controlled board response in the park, and an overall more versatile wakeboard.
