It has been a busy few months for our epoxy glasser SelSurf with huge orders of Karboloads coming in. Sel and Hylton are doing a great job keeping up with demand and ensuring the boards are coming out looking insane. Keep up the good work boys!
Karboload is the only carbon/epoxy glassing layup out there where its two unique attributes, Parallel Performance (on the deck) and Y-Flex (on the bottom), work seamlessly together to best utilise the performance attributes of carbon. Our Karboload boards utilise carbon in this layup to best enhance it’s potential and flex/recoil properties. It is also the only tech to effectively manage this across all three planes of a surfboards flex: longitudinally, torsionally and transversely, but more importantly in the right places along the board.
Speed and response through rail transitions and turns is even and smooth and directly hinges off the surfer’s foot pressure and centre of gravity. A major bonus is it is not an exclusive small-wave tech. Our testing has shown it maintains performance above 4 foot with the correct manipulation of flex through different fibreglass layups.
Importantly too, the carbon is utilised on the outer layers of deck and bottom- so that it is truly in tension when the surfboard flexes (in internal carbon laminates, the amount of tension and therefore energy feedback, decreases parabolically towards the centre of the core as the surfboard flexes).
