Construction has various impacts on your surfboard including flex, drive and response
Flex is the ability to adapt on a given moment for a particular matter on a specific task.
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.

1 = Most Stiff & 10 = Most Flexible
We construct every board with a custom combination of resin distribution & carbon fiber placements
