The Breeze boards will help you turn any lightwind day into a great session. Designed to perform as lightwind/ freeride board for anyone and an all-round freeride board for heavier riders the Breeze boards will simply help you to ride more.
The Breeze is built on our lightweight Supremo wood core. We reinforce the deck with Torsion-X tape from corner to corner to ensure every Breeze retains the lively feel of our smaller boards. Basalt Fiber Tec gives the Breeze controlled and progressive damping to ensure that it never becomes a handful even in choppy water and gusty winds. A Step Rail underside with a subtle Double Concave allows you track like an arrow and provides extra lift with minimum drag to get you planing earlier and heading further upwind than any of your friends.
Discrete Insert Wide allows for extra wide stance set-ups to help you to drive the tail of the board and we offset the inserts towards the heel rail to make it easy to crank the Breeze over to get perfect pop whenever you decide its time to take to the air.
The 145cm and 158cm Breeze boards will provide you with more time on the water, helping to make those sub 10 knot days a reality for every rider who prefers a twin tip to a directional board. The 158 is a particular favorite of schools and beginners due to its extra floatation. Light wind specialists and heavier riders alike will find the Breeze boards offer the perfect mix of lightwind/freeride performance and ease of use. If you want to smash the lightwind barrier ride the Breeze and go below 10 knots.
