Shape

Can we choose each detail on our board or are they standard models?

Each model has its fundamental characteristics, generally the rocker, the concave and the proportions don’t change. On the other hand, length, width, thickness and the profile of the rails can be adapted to each surfer. We have created a « size chart » make it easy to spot the proportions of each shape.

Can you really do custom made boards with preshapes done on a machine?

We work with a software that has been created to draw boards, therefore we have the possibility to create and change each drawing. This allows us to study and change each detail to make custom made boards without any constraint. Rocker, outline, thickness, rail profile, concave… each aspect of the board is studied and optimized. To complete our drawing software, we have a machine that is shaping the entire board, rail profile and concave included. Thanks to that we can, at the same time, offer a tailored shape and keep great consistency in the production.
