ACE HYBRID

  • Hybrid Core

    Honeycomb foam/paulownia hybrid construction resulting in an optimized strength to weight ratio.

  • 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.

  • Moderate Flex

    The Riders that like to have fun doing a little of everything will want a moderate or medium flex that allows for easier landings, buttery turns, and more forgiveness in all kinds of conditions. Found on the Ace Wood and Xcal wood.

  • Medium Rocker

    Medium rocker boards find the perfect balance between high rocker high performance and flat light wind rockers making the boards great all around boards with lengthened turning radius. Found on the Ace Carbon, Ace Wood, XO and Spectrum.

  • Quad Channels

    Strategically placed channels in tip of the board provide traction when riding and when loading for big air. These channels also provide absorption when riding through chop and during heavy landings.

  • H20 Recommended

    While this board can be used with any of the Cabrinha bindings, we recommend the H20 Binding to be the best pairing with this board.

  • Rails Channels

    Channels on the outside rails of the board to help with traction and grip when riding on edge, and to also aid with pop for freestyle tricks.

  • Single Concave

    A single concave that runs through the board, providing excellent grip but also a smooth ride.

Wam SLS

  • Grab Rails

    Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.

  • Cork Shock Absorber 2.0

    Cork offers excellent absorption characteristics and reforms entirely without leaving any visible dents in contrast to PVC. Therefore, it is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboards.

  • Responsive Flex

    Using bamboo in our surf boards, we take full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help us to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!

  • Innegra SLS surfboard

    Innegra is the reason for the predictable feel of a polyurethane surfboard, combined with liveliness, durability, dent resistance and incredible light weight. The weight reduction was achieved by replacing fiberglass with Innegra.

  • Light Team Construction

    We are using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that we no longer use a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!

  • Multibox

    All boards now come with our own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using our high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.
