Introducing Flexion EPS Core Technology™, now available on all of our shortboard models! Designed with a mixture of innovative quality materials and a focus on high performance surfing, our line of epoxy core boards is unmatched in both construction technology and rider dynamic. Flexion Technology™ offers the ultimate in speed, drive, and flex.
The key to the outstanding performance of the Flexion Technology™ boards lies within the combination of materials used during construction. For the core of our boards, we use an EPS – Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) – foam core that utilizes a high density foam stringer. For the bottom lamination and wrapping around the rails, we use a unique composite diamond ply material that has very high strength properties and a high impact resistance. This setup helps minimize torsional twist and gives a balanced flex from nose to tail with still remaining strong. The deck lamination consists of a bi-axial cloth, carbon fiber tail patches and center carbon tape further adding to the overall strength of the board.
Our structural design with Flexion Technology™ allows the board to have a balanced, light, and strong construction without giving up crucial flex which gives a surfboard a responsive and lively feel in the water.
Are you ready for your next surfboard addiction?
Meeting the demands of strength, memory flex, and being light weight, Flexion EPS Core Technology™️ reaches new levels in both surfboard performance and production. All Black Atlantic surfboards are designed and manufactured in the USA.
Flexion EPS Core Technology™️ is shaped out of EPS foam using a high density foam stringer, and built from specialized fabrics and composites. The technology delivers a strong board with high weight to strength capabilities, balanced flex pattern, and lively feel resulting in high end performance demanded from today’s surfboard.
We add a high density foam stringer to our blank retaining a nose to tail flex familiar to that of a standard PU core board which helps eliminate the EPS chatter feeling which non-stringered blanks are notorious for.
The lamination schedule consists of a combination of woven and bi-axial cloth along with composite materials. This is all combined with high quality epoxy resin that has a superior life span in both flexural properties and high UV resistance.
All boards built with Flexion Technology™️ will come standard with our signature color of black painted stringer and rail bands. Alternative colorway options are available and can be requested on custom orders.
