Technology

Built using the latest in EPS/Epoxy materials; the 50/50 technology combines a lightweight EPS core with High Grade Fibreglass Cloth Carbon Fibre Frame and Epoxy Resin:

Carbon Fibre Frame a parabolic carbon frame on the deck and linear carbon stringers on the bottom is designed to provide a controlled flex pattern! The familiar flex of the liner carbon stringers allows the rider to generate speed while the parabolic frame on the deck controls twisting through the front two thirds of the surfboard. With a highly responsive feel this layup allows the surfer to generate speed and drive with ease.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is a version of polystyrene foam typically found in the core of Firewire surfboards. EPS 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.

All 50/50 boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a refined carbon fibre frame, each board is hand laminated using epoxy resign and high grade fibreglass on the deck providing a very light board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!

Constructed using a 36gram EPS core, each board is hand laminated using Epoxy Resign and a combination of Biaxial Fibreglass on the deck and ultra light Vector Net on the bottom resulting in a durable board the feels super smooth in a wide variety of conditions!

Vector Flex has been engineered to maintain stiffness through the centre while increasing flex through the nose and tail utilising a combination of netting and fibreglass that has been designed to withstand high velocity impact resulting in a natural flex pattern and connection to the wave face that is lacking in other EPS/Epoxy surfboards!

Biaxial Fibre Glass has half its fibres aligned along the length of the cloth (0 degrees) and half across the cloth (90 degrees) creating a controlled flex pattern.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is very light and strong. EPS foam has more buoyancy and floatation increasing paddling speed and manoeuvrability.
Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester releasing 50-75% fewer VOCs into the environment.

XF Boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a high-grade timber stringer, each board is hand laminated using Epoxy Resign and Biaxial Fibreglass on the deck providing a lighter, stronger board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!
