ZEN, maximise the simplicity.
Our lightest board now is stiffer and comes with reinforcement plates in the standing area. The fixed fins make the board toolless and easy to prepare for on water action.
Reinforcement plates in the standing areas and increased Dropstitch thickness in most models increase rigidity.
By carefully nesting the reinforcements we offer the lightest board we have ever produced.
The large soft thruster-fin set up is a proven and durable tracking solution.
