CARBON WRAP is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the need for a standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-defines the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled.
Ultra-light EPS cores are ‘wrapped’ with strategically positioned carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins.
The carbon the ‘wraps’ from the bottom, around the rails and onto the deck. This unique method creates the Carbon Wrap’s lively flex that loads and releases, resulting in next level speed and drive.
Running along the rails, onto the deck, the carbon acts as a rear foot power point, increasing drive and control with an additional patch to minimize pressure denting. Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are encased with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and our exclusive carbon deck inlay, which is strategically positioned to add fast re-flex memory under the surfer’s stance and allow subtle, natural deck caving around the arch of the front foot.
By tapering the carbon into long, pointed ends, the flex blends out naturally towards the nose and tail. A full layer of 45 degree X-Glass encases the deck. The X-Glasses flat, bi-axel weave dramatically adds strength without rigidity, or excess weight and allows the board to maintain flex while alleviating crease points created by standard, 90 degree fibreglass. The 45 degree weave radiates foot pressure outward, directly connecting the foot to a longer section of the rail, adding greater edge control.
