SPECIAL AGENT

  • Wood Core

    We use a premium “A-grade” Paulownia wood core which is vertically laminated to optimize strength, reduce weight and allow the board to flex more naturally and freely. Found in all 2019 models.

  • Carbon Fiber

    Customized double 45 degree bias Carbon Fiber is a lightweight and durable laminate that maximizes performance by stiffening the flex pattern for increased response and explosive pop.

  • ABS Rails

    ABS is a tough hard wearing composite material which bonds very well to epoxy. This is used during the lay-up process ensuring a smooth, durable and consistent ride. All twin tip rails and insert blocks are made from ABS material.

  • Geometric stringer

  • Y strap config

  • Position Indicators

  • Hydrofoil

    A unique design of lifting surfaces to allow boards to rise above the waters surface and move with minimal drag and maximum efficiency.

  • Hybrid Carbon Technology

    Lighter weight construction for stiffness, manoeuvrability and glide. The stiffer the board, the better it will pump and the more responsive it feels. A light yet durable epoxy composite laminate, with a balanced carbon and e-glass fibre layup is wrapped around an EPS core. High-density closed cell PVC reinforcement around the foil track mount, leash plug and foot strap inserts spreads the load. An ultra-lightweight double bamboo reinforcement layer under the standing area adds greater impact resistance and rigidity.

  • Integrated PVC structural stringer system

    The DropBox foil mounting tracks are embedded into a high-density closed-cell PVC block. Two high-density PVC stringers are glued to each side of this block, distributing the load lengthwise, and the full system connects the top and bottom laminate skins for maximum support.

  • DropBox adjustable foil mounting track

    Speed-dial your foil setup. Simply drop your foil pre-assembled with screws and t-nuts into the track, slide it backwards, then tighten the screws to fasten. Our unique structurally-integrated DropBox has a longer track for a wider adjustment range, allowing you to precision-tune the foil set up for your rider weight. A measurement guide next to the track aids correct positioning. Industry-standard 90mm track spacing means the DropBox is compatible with most foil systems.

  • Steep bevelled rails

    Help with touchdown recovery and water release.

  • Corduroy deck grip with tactile & visual stance reference

    For a more intuitive and direct connection to your foil, grippy longitudinal corduroy with centre-line ridge allows fast, easy tactile foot placement. Tail kickpad with cutouts on the Swell for your feet while prone paddling. Transverse markers on the deckpad provide a visual reference, giving you confidence to adjust.

  • Compact outline with generous nose volume

    The shorter the board, the more effective it is for pumping, the less swing weight, and the more aerodynamic and manoeuvrable it is when riding up on the foil. The reverse shear of the deck and downward curve in the nose allows for greater control over the board, even when fully submerged on water starts. The extra nose volume was added on top so the boards could be cut short without losing stability and allows you to ride a board 6” shorter. The volume in the nose also stops you nose-diving when you’re paddling into a wave and helps keep the water off the concave deck.

  • Cutaways and tapered tail

    The sharp release edge on the tail allows for an earlier take-off, while the cutaways and the way the tail tapers reduces the volume in the tail, helping to bring the board’s centre of buoyancy forward, right underneath your stance. Having the centre of buoyancy directly underneath your stance is essential for finding that sweet spot on the board where you can remain without shifting your weight back and forward. The wedged tail shape reduces the overall length and improves the pumpability of the foil. Every movement counts to staying up on the foil.
