The Pro WAM is the ultimate high-performance all-rounder. The fuller outline makes the Pro WAM slightly more compact than most traditional squash tail shortboards and is the key to its unique do it all abilities. It has excellent handling in light winds and smaller waves while still retaining the impressive high speed and sought after big wave performance that riders love. The Pro WAM excels in most conditions from small to large waves. It is the one board does it all board for all your travels, being capable of handling all sorts of conditions. The subtle grab rail, optimized volume distribution and double concave deck complete one of the most impressive surfboards in the Duotone range. This season also as a 5´6 version for lighter riders.
LIGHT TEAM CONSTRUCTION
For 2019, we are using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that we no longer use a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!
Using bamboo in our surf boards, we take full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help us to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!
All boards now come with our own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using our high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.
CORK SHOCK ABSORBER 2.0
Cork offers excellent absorption characteristics and reforms entirely without leaving any visible dents in contrast to PVC. Therefore, it is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboards.
Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.
Technora is a para-aramid fibre with excellent technical properties for high performance kite surfboards. It’s high-tensile strength, good fatigue resistance and long term dimensional stability make it an ideal fibre for use in areas of boards that take repeated impact. We have oriented the Technora fibre in a way that does not affect the overall feel and flex of the board and have slightly altered our overall layup in order to not add any additional weight to the boards while still taking full advantage of the superior strength of Technora to prevent cracking and breakage.
