“Battle of the Paddle Edition Race.”

Brian Szymanski designed the Race BOP specifically for smoother ocean conditions with cleaner swell, and for in-and-out surf race events like the Battle of the Paddle (BOP). It features a flatter rocker, flat deck, piercing nose for wave penetration paddling out, and a square tail for stability when riding swell coming in. Team rider test results show the 12’6” Race BOP to be faster than our 12’6” Race boards in flat water and small chop. The Race BOP Edition will be THE board to beat at BOP events and a great all round race board for experienced riders.

Our Brushed Carbon wave boards are up to 3kg lighter than our AST technology. The board construction ultra-light, flat-weave biaxial carbon and medium density high quality PVC sandwich foam wrapped around a light density EPS core. The first board construction in the world to utilize an ultra-light carbon fiber that is flat-weaved for total mechanical efficiency.

Glass Epoxy technology features a light-weight EPS core and uses layers of three-dimensional 400g glass mat wetted out with an expanding epoxy resin system that creates volume within the skin as it cures under pressure. This creates a thick, stiff, durable, yet light-weight sandwiched laminate. A half-deck wood layer improves rigidity and deck impact resistance.
