Like name suggests, we've combined the favourable elements from both a Performance Fibreglass Boards & and Entry Level Softboard to create a selection of board that stays true to our core values of Quality, Performance and Safety.
Put simply, the construction consists of a Stringered EPS Core, wrapped in Fibreglass Cloth & Epoxy Resin, which is then encapsulated by a traditional Softboard deck skin and slick.
Detailed Construction Specs:
24kg Density Moulded EPS Core
This core provide unhindered strength and enhanced durability while retaining light weight characteristics. It also has the most buoyancy and floatation of all surfboard cores.
Each Hybrid Board contains a stringer which acts as a backbone to the EPS Core. In the smaller models (6'0 and below), we use a light-weight Fibreglass Stringer, while the larger sizes (6'2+) we use a Solid Bamboo Stringer for increased strength.
Each Softlite Hybrid Series board contains 3 layers of 6oz Fibreglass set with Epoxy Resin on the Deck Side. (Standard Shortboards usually 2 X 4oz or 6oz)
On the Slick side contains 1 layers of 6oz Fibreglass set with Epoxy Resin. (Standard Shortboards usually 1 X 4oz or 6oz)
On the deck side this is encapsulated by a 5mm IXPE Deck skin for extra strength, durability and traction.
On the slick side, this is encapsulated by a super High Density PE Slick Bottom for protection, speed and durability.
Futures Fin System
We use an industry standard Futures Fin Box. This allows quick and easy fin installation and removal.
It is compatible with all Futures Fins making it easy to change fins to suit conditions or alter board performance.
