This board will grovel when you need it to in those less than average days, you know the ones, those waist to chest high weak swell days.You get out the water and realize you just had an absolute blast flying down the line going mach 5 and turning on a sixpence,doing what a twinny does best.But wait…the waves have jumped up to head high and bigger on the set,now the board comes totally alive with a speed and flow you don t get to experience on a different type of surfcraft.This is when the small trailer fin comes into play.You can still come hard off the bottom but the projection is unreal.With speed comes maneuvers and precision rail work with a smooth style that only a performance Twinny can deliver.
Built using the latest in EPS/Epoxy materials; the XF technology combines a lightweight EPS core with Biaxial Fibreglass Cloth and Epoxy Resin.
Biaxial Fibre Glass has about half of its fibres aligned along the length of the cloth (0 degrees) and about half across the cloth (90 degrees) lending itself as a perfect option for creating a controlled flex pattern.
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 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!
