FEATHERFLASH® is a Hollow Carbon Fiber Stringer inspired by one of
natures most elegant designs, The Feather. The Idea combined with
the passion, has sprouted a new paradigm in stringer construction
that makes one of the sweetest feel for the surfing feet . After
15 fun years of looking to improve the relationship with waves,
the natural change was to make a board that satisfied the craving
for more speed...
The shape of the feather’s Core has proven to keep the profile optimally for thousand of
years...Can’t go wrong with nature! FeatherFlash® is a balanced receipt for the Magic Flex Range,
it keeps accelerating shred, after shred, after shred... the more you push the more it gives back,
never out of profile, never dead. Goes as fast as you can, Faster than speed!!!
Wood Stringers really added a magic touch to surfboard making, its fairly variable properties
made impossible to have a constant “Snappy” flex range. Most of the magic was in nature’s
hands: Grain Orientation,Moisture Content, Knots, Age Provenience...
Carbon Fiber properties are more desirable than wood: After flexing it is the Quickest material
to go back to its Original Shape maximizing the EnergyTransfer(good memory).
It can be flexible like black bamboo or stronger than steel, it depends how it has been
layered, specific flex patterns can be reproduced fairly close, it looses very little of its Memory
over repetitive cyclic loads, it will be happily snappy for years, it buckles less...
