Fringe Pro All-Around Thruster
Keith Teboul: “The Fringe model has been completely redesigned, rocker, foam flow, rails, construction.
A full vee bottom with double concave creates an effortless glide with a smooth rail to rail turning. Drivey when you need it more pivot when you push.
A quick paddler and very stable ride.
Rockers offer a nice smooth entry with subtle slow smooth constant curve between the stance and a bit of tail release to allow the board to finish the turns. This along with the vee makes for a quick snappy respon- sive ride.”
An easy to ride squash tail performance board offering great stability and smooth paddling. The smaller Fringe sizes are fun and easy fish outlines. These boards are all about getting the maximum out of small or not so powerful wave sessions. A fuller outline for ease of paddling and catching waves, and a narrower tail allow for quick accelerating turns. As the line evolves it moves into fuller and wider outlines on the bigger boards. These are all about getting your first shorter board that is forgiving enough to finish rides. It’s a great all around board for learning and progressing your surfing. The Fringe is as at home in punchy waves, clean point breaks or mushy beach break.
Controlling the flex in boards is the future and thank- fully with FLEX•XTM that future is now, transmitting the energy of the rider into the board and out towards the rails allows for both quicker and snappier turns with more direct projection. Keith developed a layup for the stringers that allows the back half of the board to flex more and quicker, allowing for a more sensitive and snappy feeling board. Last but not least FLEX•XTM makes the board stronger and less prone to breakage since it works as a double stringer.
Available in 5'6", 5'8", 5'10", 6'0", 6'2", 6'4", 6'8", 7'0", 7'6", 8'0" feet.
Keith Teboul: “I am most excited about the new construction I have developed here in Hawaii. I call it Exo-Skeleton wrap. Basically we shape the foam to spec. We then wrap the deck of the board in our patented Flexx geometry with a uni directional carbon. The bottom has a uni direction carbon as well centered for ultimate strength. This construction allows the core to flex to its limits and yet not break because of the layout of the Exo-Skeleton wrap. The layup and carbon all work as one monocoque to create a smooth reactive flex through the whole board resulting in a quick smooth fast surfboard. The ultimate in modern technology.”
EPS Core and Epoxy resin. Revolutionary FLEX•XTM stringer technology. The FLEX•XTM Dynamic Stringer Concept has been developed by Keith Teboul. While both shaping and riding experimental surfboards he realized that the flex plays an overwhelming part in whether you have a magic board or not. He set out to find a way to precisely control this flex and apply it where and how he wanted it to be. With FLEX•XTM Keith achieved just that.
