Stripped back to its original form, the M1 focuses on the traditional elements of board design. Clean lines and a perfectly balanced template gives you the options of riding close in the pocket or driving down the line looking for the ramp.
We’ve introduced NRG+ and Tension Tech to our base M1 model. Giving riders a true balance in flex and recoil. Listening to our customers, we found a need to develop this model in the most positive way to offer Bodyboarders chasing slabby waves a product that can do it all.
CORE: NRG Core – 1.4lb Polypro (PP) Core
NRG CORE: Developed using cutting edge expansion cell technology the NRG Core has been specifically formulated to duplicate key performance characteristics found in original Dow cores. By incorportaing the latest advancements in calibrated cell fusion the NRG core posesses excellent recoil & projection properties. The core is 100% waterproof. The construction contains a single S10 stringer combined with deck and slick mesh. This creates constant rebound memory giving great responsiveness and projection throughout the board.
STRINGER: Single Stringer
A stringer is a hollow, filament wound composition fiber tube used for board strength and instant recoil.
DECK: 8 Pound PE Deck Skin
5mm 8 pcf Wave Cushion non crosslink polyethylene deck and rail skins. The premier skin for high performance boards
SLICK: SURLYN Slick Skin
Top end, the finest grade authentic Dupont Surlyn slick skin. Surlyn exhibits rubber like properties for superior projection.
CHANNELS: Graduated Channels
Graduated contours increase the surface area of the slick and channels the laminar flow of water along the rail/hull for enhanced edge control.
TAIL: Crescent Tail
Classic 40 degree radius curve cut, for rider control, comfort and quick release. The tail blocks are precision cut for maximum drive out of the bottom turns.
ADDITIONAL FEATURES: Graduated Channels, Nose Bulbs, 55/45 Double rails, Nose & Tail Bumpers, CNC Shaped
TECHNOLOGY: Tension Tech is a top mesh sub sandwich layer. It consists of a sheet of mesh sandwiched in between the two layers of 1.5mm IXLPP (crosslink polypropylene). This allows us to produce a much thinner core without sacrificing strength, resulting in an incredibly strong board with excellent recoil. Combined with Polypro, this makes an extremely stiff board, perfect for tropical locations. We have been using this technology mainly with PE and NRG boards, allowing us to get the best properties from both the PP substrate, and the softer NRG or PE core.
