Product Description

With a name like The Boss it’s no surprise this surfboard will have a big influence in any line-up when it comes to catching waves. Essentially, it is designed to be an affordable, user-friendly longboard that’s spec’d appropriately for easy riding with an emphasis on stability, control and smooth turning.

OUTLINE: While not too dissimilar to other longboards on the market, The Boss has a very balanced outline, with loads of surface area up front for surfers more capable at nose riding, a parallel mid-section which creates a huge standing zone, and enough taper in the tail to break a line and turn smoothly.

ROCKER: Nice and low through the entry makes for fast paddling, which equates to more waves, tick! Relaxed through the middle, but with enough curve to promote a nice turning arc on the wave face. And finally, there’s a little extra lift in the tail to make turning easier for surfers moving up in their abilities.

CONTOURS: While most performance longboards have complex concaves for rapid movement and response, The Boss has a more simplistic soft vee in the entry and middle, running into vee/double concave through the tail. This is designed to help promote smoother rail-to-rail transitions on a longer board, yet still provide control in steeper sections, and deliver a feeling of pivotal sensitivity when turning right off the tail.

FOIL: Designed with plenty of volume through the nose and tail, and also out towards the rails, providing added stability and making this board simple to ride, regardless of your skill level.

PERFORMANCE: This is the perfect entry level longboard due to the volume allocations, the ease at which it rides, and of course the price. However, more savvy surfers will tap into the true versatile nature of this board and its reliability across so many different types of waves. If you’re a traveller, or just like having one dependable longboard in your quiver, this is it.

The X1 construction offers the strength, flex and performance advantages of epoxy at a very affordable price.

Technical Info

Technology

X1 Epoxy

X-1 Epoxy is a simple and effective construction using epoxy resin, woven fiberglass and a lightweight EPS core. The EPS core is cut directly from the shapers files, and once custom shaped, is glassed in the traditional hand layup method with multiple layers of woven fiberglass imported form the USA.

This versatile construction is lightweight, affordable, and is particularly suited to manufacturing SUP's. X-1 Epoxy boards are most popular for their subtle flex and memory recall properties, which translates into a board that feels light and responsive, and offers reliable performance regardless of the conditions.
