Our focus with the Compact is to develop the ultimate all-round wave board to perform in real world conditions.
The outline features a relatively far forward wide point which has improved the drive through the bottom turn, while the more pulled in nose has ensured you do not lose any of that classic Compact throw around factor.
The V bottom in the tail area allows for smooth rail to rail transitions, while the wider nose area and flatter entry rocker and tail rocker of the board (compared to the Converse), helps increase planning speed over flat sections, maintaining the low end of a much longer board.
The Patented Active Construction has proven itself as the absolute benchmark in surf constructions, with the lightest weight possible achieved through the Active Stringer and Flexible Carbon Sandwich Construction.
If you need one Wave board to perform in any conditions you throw at it, the compact is the board of choice.
The Patented Active Construction has proven itself as an essential in surf constructions, with the lightest weight possible achieved through the Active Stringer and Flexible Carbon Sandwich Construction. Its key feature is the ultra-lightweight carbon I-beam through the center of the board. This prevents the board from flexing excessively and damaging the laminate. The secret to the Active Technology flex is the high memory polypropylene flex zone, which works with with the flexible bi-axial carbon skins to flex and compress within a safe range.
