Fins: Thruster Fin Set Up (Bones and Shanks Fin System) - Fins Included with Every Board
The Bunsen Burner is our take on a high performance shortboard. It still has a nice high wide point so it'll paddle like a dream and makes this board a good option in small, weak waves. When the waves turn on, however, it has a nice pulled in pin tail so it'll still have some hold in hollow conditions.
It comes with a thruster fin set up, using the "Bones and Shanks" fin system.
This is the ideal board for the city slicker who is forced to surf quality waves between the flags, or even the ripping groms who aren’t quite ready for a hard board yet.
While this is not the ideal board for beginners we would recommend this for beginner riders weighing 30-45kg. If you are an experienced surfer up to 85kg, it should float you as well and work a treat!
The Mad Lab Range is what we’ve been working on for a while. We are pretty excited about this range as it has really allowed us to push the envelope, and lead the way as far as softboard innovation goes. With the final product, we’ve got a softboard that actually feels close to riding a fibreglass board!
As well as all the usual Softlite features, this series has a few on top of the rest including;
ROLLED PARABOLIC PE RAILS: This is one of the biggest advancement in soft surfboards. Each board contains 4 crosslink rails. These rails are then hand shaped, allowing softer rails near the nose tapering down to a sharp, harder edged rail at the tail. Similar to a regular shortboard, it allows if to be forgiving and not catch rails up front, but more performance and easier to turn off the tail. Similarly, to a stringer it also provides extra stiffness in the board. Previously, these features could not be properly executed properly on soft surfboard.
MESH INFUSED SLICKS: This is technology derived from bodyboarding, who lead the way in using EPS / HDPE Slick combinations. The Reinforced mesh is infused into the Dura HD Slick. This provides a frame of strength, which not only improves stiffness but also recoil, so making it easier to pump from rail to rail with the right amount of tension.
