At six inches shorter than your regular board, the Compact fits into every section of a wave imaginable; while at the same time has the stability and drive to deal with high wind and bigger wave conditions.
The vee bottom in the tail area allows for smooth rail-to-rail transitions, while the wider nose area in the entry of the board helps increase planning speed over flat sections. This maintains the low end that a rider would find in a longer board. Its narrow tail and reduced hip give it more control in high wind, which in conjunction with the bottom shape ensure the smoothest drive in the toughest conditions.
The Key to the Active Stringers strength is the stiff and ultra lightweight carbon I-beam through the center of the board. This prevents the board from over flexing and damaging the laminate when flexing beyond the working range. The secret to the Active Technology flex is the high memory polypropylene layer that allows the full biaxial carbon skins to flex and compress within the working range. The combination gives a perfect blend of maximum flex with maximum durability.
The Flytech III Bamboo comprises of a dual sandwich hi-density standing area, with a full bamboo sandwich deck, this ensures strength and lightweight in the standing area. The bottom deck features the innovative new Bioflex bamboo sandwich. The unique bias orientation and bamboo combination creates the most flex possible in a wood sandwich.
