The launch: The fastest board in the Science Template Series
A straighter template designed to be exceedingly fast through all sections with the simple aim to Launch you as high as humanly possible.The Launch also holds a strong rail in deep hollow barrels where driving speed is a must. Aim for a section, be it down the line of a deep pit or towards a lip to accelerate you skyward, The launch will get you there very quickly.

Core: Kinetic Polypro Core (PP)
KPP is a state of the art engineered Bodyboard core. A lightweight core that is fusion formed to create a nucleus that delivers incredible flex properties, including instant recoil, enhanced longitudinal stiffness and awesome compression strength. 100% Waterproof.
Deck:Wavecushion Air 8lb PE Deck
Stringer: Single Stringer
A stringer is a hollow, filament would composition fiber tube used for board strength and instant recoil.
Slick: Surlyn Slick Skin
Top end, the finest grade authentic Dupont Surlyn slick skin. Surlyn exhibits rubber like properties for superior projection.
Channels: MS Channels
Gradual entry but its surface area remains constant through-out the water flow.With water flow when you increase surface, going from flat bottom to concave (channel) this creates drag and slows down the board. With the MS Channels two things occur.
1. Smooth Entry into the channel.
2. No drag producing added surface area.
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.
55/45 Double Rail
Nose Bulbs (Raised nose grips shaped into the corners of the Surlyn or HD bottom, ergonomically formed for fingertip control)
Slick Mesh (Diamond shaped plastic mesh weave, laminated between the core and the slick for improved stiffness, recoil and lifespan)
