X:BREED FOIL

  • Y strap config

  • Cork dampening

  • 3 fins

  • Position Indicators

  • Bamboo Sandwich

  • Hydrofoil

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

Astra

  • Enhanced edge control

    Phenomenal rail hold for easy upwind tracking and confident boosting, a result of the balanced harmony engineered between outline, rocker and flex.

  • Dynamic flex

    Ride in comfort, with precise edge control for carving. The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.

  • Lightweight, impact resistant eco core

    Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios. Ultra lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance, Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.

  • Durable ABS rail

    For long-lasting, impact-resistant performance.

  • Ergonomic handle

    Lightweight and ergonomic TPE material with ultimate grip when wet.

  • Integrated grab rail

    Integrated into deck shape to provide easy grip for board-offs.

  • Recommended with flex bindings

    Soft cushioning with just the right amount of grip underfoot. Pure-comfort seamless KnitFlex inners and triple-density GripFlex footbeds are combined with customised size and stance adjustments for a locked-in feel and dependable support. Sold separately in sizes S/M or M/L.

  • Hybrid basalt construction

    The heart of this board is a light and strong Paulownia wood core. We’ve orientated the e-glass and unidirectional basalt tapes in the laminate layup to optimise the loading of the individual fibres, resulting in a unique construction method with superior performance. Made from natural molten volcanic rocks, basalt fibre provides a lightweight structural reinforcement that is stronger and more responsive than e-glass. The basalt UD tapes contribute to a board’s lively feel and lower weight, delivering more pop without adding an unnecessary amount of stiffness.

  • Medium-high outline curve with NEW tip shape

    Delivers easy carving through turns and always provides optimised grip.

  • Progressive rocker with pulled-in tips

    Early planing and great low-end performance, with greater control when overpowered.

  • Single concave to quad channel tips

    Absorbs impact by breaking the water surface tension, and ensures stable and predictable landings.
