White flax in the blue room

20.07.2015

The latest in innovative technologies from Bcomp sees a range of natural fibre fabrics launched for the construction of surfboards, and other boards designed for water sports.

A dark object absorbs all wavelengths of light and converts them into heat. The object - for example a surfboard - gets hot and the applied surf wax is melting. To avoid this effect and to give the shaper more freedom in optical design options, Bcomp has developed a white version of the low twist flax fabrics - the so-called ampliTex® SURF.


Flax fibres are fully sustainable, making them the perfect choice for eco conscious surfers who want to ensure that pursuing their favourite hobby will have the smallest impact on the environment possible. Not only are surfboards made with these new technologies much lighter than a traditional surfboard, cutting the potential weight of the board by up to 30%, they are also wonderfully smooth and shock absorbing.

The ride gets dynamic with a lively flex pattern that delivers balanced but reactive pop out of turns and high stability down the line.

This naturally engineered composite material opens new ways in matter of performance and design possibilities.
