Pioneering Material Science and Nanotechnology in the Art of Shaping Surfboards.

We are pioneering surfboards specifically designed with the fact that new materials and processes play an ever more significant role in today's shaping of surfboards. We specialize in using modern techniques in nanotechnology, biological and chemical process engineering. This highly interdisciplinary and largely international team has been developed to meet the particular challenges of this complex and cutting-edge field of research and development in high performance surboard manufacturing as outlined below: 

  • Transfer of energy from the surfer to the wave (or wave to surfer) with minimal dampening.
  • Proper flex and store/release energy repeatedly, reproducibly, with no attenuation.
  • It should flex only in the right place (torsional, longitudinal and lateral flex)
  • Light weight producing less “shift mass” underfoot, less energy needed for the board to respond
  • Waterproof and tough outer skin (ding resistant)
  • Fast on the water (low coefficient of friction)
  • Easy to paddle out, but not to ‘floaty’ to duck dive.

The unique combination of materials science engineering and the ancient art of Hawaiian surfboard shaping to produce high performance boards for your needs... is our goal.
