Vacuum Lamination. We apply our proprietary high-end vacuum lamination process developed on Maui, formulated to withstand even harsh water impact, without effect on hull integrity or stance area. Adapted from the Ginxu line, this technology offers peace of mind in all water conditions.
Carbon Monocoque. The deck and stance area are integrated into the hull via a Carbon Monocoque. By bonding the carbon to the core through vaccum lamination, we ensure its superior material qualities get translated into the body of the board, creating a supremely light and stiff hull.
Carbon. The entire board gets vacuum laminated in Plain Weave Carbon. Additionally, the deck receives Uni-Directional Carbon coverage for ultimate structural strength. Lastly the padded stance area is reinforced with Biaxial Carbon, providing all the benefits of high-end non-crimp fabrics.
