The Evolution Continues

The new ONE-XT leash is raising the bar with 40% more strength and 40% more stretch. It is constructed using a new production technique and has a unique formula in the urethane cord allowing for superior stretch and memory retention.

Its packaging also minimises leash kinks, reducing the stretch on the urethane pre-use. The ankle or knee strap has vertically moulded neoprene panels for extra comfort. With no weak points the one piece leash is the “Worlds Strongest Leash” compared to competitor brands. For ultimate comfort and reliability check them out in-store. Currently available in 6ft and 10ft at Classic Malibu.

BOARD OF THE WEEK – THE V_FLEX

V-Flex Longboard

 

Just as our fashion is taking a trip back in time, so are the longboards. Amongst the progressive logs  and performance longboards the Old School style is back. With a Classic mid 60’s template, low slung hips and pinched rails the V-Flex has that “Old School feel” allowing excellent pivot from the tail. A touch of “New School” is added with the V-Stringer that tapers out towards the nose giving greater flex and nose-riding capabilities.

If you’re looking for your next log, check out the V-FLex for a great nose-riding and trimming single fin board to accompany the quiver. Meets the new “logger” competition criteria.

 

Typical Dimensions:

Length:       9’3″

About:
All my life I have been hearing impaired (my left ear does not hear and still the right has a hearing aid). I have no water proof hearing aid either, which often interests people due to the significance between hearing and balance. This, however, does not affect my balance when surfing.

OUR TEAM

The Powerhouse Model

Nic Jones by Ian Borland

Powerhouse ModelPW SHAPING BOARD

The powerhouse is a new model developed between team rider Nic Jones and shaper Peter White from Classic Malibu. bringing together the best of high performance surfing with unbelievable noseriding capabilities.

The board retains quite a curvy rocker through the rails, however, the full length single channel running through the bottom of the board straightens the bottom line in comparison to the rail line. This allows the board to keep its manoeuvrability to a maximum while increasing speed through turns and trimming through slower sections. The channel runs from nose concave and blends into the double concaves just in front of the fins, 7mm in depth and 180mm in width. Despite its performance characteristics the board offers great tip time for riders who want the best of both worlds. Being glassed extremely light adds to its responsiveness.
