“Longboard – from 8’6 to 9’6 the Fun Division Longboard has all the elements of traditional longboards and modern features with an emphasis on just catching a wave, big or small, and riding it to the beach, turning, walking and nose-riding. High volume equals loads of fun all day every day!”
|8’6||22 3/8||2 7/8||63.65|

LINEAR CARBON TECHNOLOGY
The Carbon Fibre placed along the centre of the deck acts in a similar way to a leaf spring providing storage of potential energy during bottom turns with a progressive release resulting in a smooth transition during top turns
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is typically the lightest of the three foams used in surfboard construction resulting in a much lighter board translating to increased buoyancy and floatation. Basically the lowest density or lightest board will float you the best! The advantage of better buoyancy is added paddling speed and increased manoeuvrability allowing you to ride a smaller board. EPS foam core is also less likely to deteriorate over time!
Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester as epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds) than polyester resin, which means a decrease in harmful chemicals in the shop and the environment in general. In fact, epoxy is a common household item, safe to use without a mask and with only moderate ventilation. Epoxy is lighter than polyester. Under most circumstances, resin makes up a large part of a completed board’s overall weight. Not only is epoxy lighter than polyester, but less is needed per coat. This ends up meaning a lighter surfboard – a big plus for most surfers. The biggest bonus However is the durability and strength of epoxy resin.
We recommend that when purchasing a board in LCT Technology to stay within your familiar volume i.e. if you were looking at purchasing a PU board at 40litres then you would also look at purchasing an LCT at 40litres as the displacement will be the same.

Through modern innovation we have removed large operating expenses enabling The Surfboard Agency to pass savings on to customers and in turn build healthy strategic partnerships in all surf markets.
The Surfboard Agency has positioned itself to provide a complete service solution and we specialise in providing a full turn key solution for surfboard supply from product development through to shipping and logistics! One of our key strengths is an exceptional working relationship with the Cobra factory in Thailand!
The Cobra factory over the past 40 years has established itself as premium manufacturer of composite products and due to the scale of their operation they have extremely high MOQ’s, lengthy drawn out and complicated product setup procedures and complex internal systems!
With a reputation for consistently high quality products Cobra traditionally have proven themselves difficult to work with and often fail at providing a full turn key solution for surfboard manufacturers and brands that simply don’t have the resources to successfully deal with a large scale manufacturer such as Cobra directly.
