FEATURES Old world designs come back to life once again with the Bonza. In contrast to the Hipster Twin, however, which is all about looseness and tight rail turns, the Bonza is a stark contrast that wants to draw out your turns at speed. Bringing an elegant drawn-out hyper-speed rail game into your surfing. ✓A relatively full nose into smooth outline curve feeding into a wider area pintail. This provides a smooth balanced and stable platform to start with.
✓Its bottom shape is what marries up to this perfectly. A single concave nose that leads into a deep double concave that runs from the midpoint out through a fairly heavy V in the tail.
✓The deep double concave creates a flat rocker out the tail of the board whilst maintaining rocker curve on the outline, which marries up with the outline curve through the tail.
✓So it has a smooth carving outline which contains and creates speed when on the front foot driving down the line and then rocks around on its tail outline when you step back on the back foot.
✓And when that flat rocker and five fin system fits into the speed spot of the wave, the speed and acceleration are unparalleled. As a thruster, it has the same speedy sensations, but with a more traditional fin gripped driven sensation.
RECOMMENDED FINS Fins included.
CONSTRUCTION: Biax Carbon PVC Performance
Using a full PVC sandwich construction method, the Biax Carbon PVC Performance is our lightest and strongest technology available, with the use of a full biaxial carbon deck, to inject energy and reflex into the board. The biaxial carbon is a 45 degree-angled weave that provides stiffness with a quick flex and reflex response, providing the crispest feel imaginable.
The lightweight EPS cores are CNC-cut for maximum precision and accuracy before being hand laminated and vacuum-bagged with a full 5mm high-density PVC foam which forms a hard shell around the lightweight EPS foam. Australian pine wood is used in the standing area to further prevent heel dents while the nose, tail, and leash plug insert are reinforced with additional carbon patches. It is the strongest, lightest, most durable construction on offer, proven over the years.
This used to be for custom orders only but moving forward, it is replacing our Parabolic Carbon PVC lay-up, integrating into the entire range for the full wrap PVC boards, and shaving a couple of hundred grams off the scales.
