FX1 Construction is lightweight, strong, dent proof, and has a natural flex pattern to ensure performance in a wide range of conditions. When you have a board that has very strong impact resistance, usually it will have stiff flex patterns that feel chattery on the face of a wave and be hard to control, especially at higher speeds. The FX1 construction method rivals the compression strength of sandwich construction epoxy alternatives but adds a better natural flex pattern to allow for ease of use in a wider range of conditions.
The main core of the surfboard is super fused EPS foam, then it’s cut in half and inserted with a PU foam central flex dampener which gives you a core that has liveliness to it and loads of flexy spring. This is then wrapped in two layers of glass on the bottom of the board using a unique tiered lap which gives you unreal flex recoil and a tensile strength 20% stronger than a standard 4oz cloth. A sandwich laminate of 4oz and innegra cloths are used to form a layer over the deck of the surfboard to give you a compression strength completely unrivalled from any other hand glassed surf board on the market
The board is laminated with an epoxy resin that contains a bio content of 48% and is finished with a 240 grit dry sand finish to ensure it has optimum strength to weight ratios. The FX1 offers you a construction that will perform in a large range of conditions, remain strong, light and feel new forever, while being an eco-friendlier option compared to a standard construction surfboard.
