Flex is the ability to adapt on a given moment for a particular matter on a specific task.

Flex value

FLEX IN A SURFBOARD: Is the ability of the surfboard to adapt to the shape of a wave with a specific surfer on a particular moment.

MEASURING FLEX: To measure flex you will need a static surfboard with the weight of a surfer. The lighter the surfer the more flex the board can have.

FLEX VALUES: Since measuring flex is difficult and extremely important for a custom surfboard, we have created Flex Values. Lightweight surfers can use more flex (8-10) while a heavier surfer 200 lbs or more would want to be in the (1-4) Range.
