“When something isn’t broke, there’s no need to fix it. That said, Britt Merrick and Dane Reynolds still felt a few slight refinements would make an already epic board that much better. And it did: The merits to this update can be seen in Dane’s new surf film “The Electric Acid Surfboard Test.”

 

A big fan of single concave, Dane asked Britt to take out the vee from the original Neck Beard, creating single throughout. This changed the rocker landscape some, but in a very positive wayenhancing its wave entry, down-the-line speed, and overall control. They also widened the tail block 1/2″ and added a slight hip, resulting in increased responsiveness and maneuverability.

 

Dane prefers the Neck Beard 2 as a tri-fin, but those that like quads may notice added down-the-line speed. It comes with a five-fin setup to get the best of both worlds.”

 

Introducing Spine-Tek!:

“(Channel Islands) are proud to announce our collaboration with Shapers Australia to launch SPINE-TEK; a precision engineered stringer spine utilizing a unique composition of fiberglass and resin. SPINE-TEK is based on the principles of elastic energy, to flex under pressure and then return the surfboard back to its natural rocker, providing surfboards with a more lively and responsive feel.

 

Performance through innovation, SPINE-TEK is a world’s first with its unique fiber-based composition, delivers optimal flex based performance through the principles of elastic & kinetic energy. Through this process the surfboard loads up on energy and then releases, generating additional drive, speed, power & flow.

 

Weighing a mere of a pound and installed in the surfboard deck, SPINE-TEK replaces the traditional heavier timber stringers and is virtually break free.”

 

More Details…

“The SPINE-TEK concept focuses the importance of flex to provide increased efficiency to turn (the ability to redirect body mass faster and at more acute angles).

 

The result is increased efficiency (the way the board moves through water), the Spine helps a surfer achieve greater output from less input; a lighter amount of force required through the bottom turn to create more acceleration for the top turn.

 

Some surfers will simply push/try harder (use more force) to achieve a more powerful response (bigger turns, more pop for punts etc). Maximizing this efficiency is also a way minimize surfer fatigue and maintain energy.

 

A critical component is the ability of a product to be able to change shape (distort) and then return back to its optimal form (shape) with force. The SPINE flexing is loading up on energy (this load process is ‘storing energy’ =  Elastic Potential Energy). When the board responds back to its natural shape (the boards rocker curve), this stored energy is converted to Kinetic Energy (the energy of motion). In simple terms, the surfboard loads up on energy (potential) and then the boards springs back with energy (kinetic). In surfing terms.. Speed, Power, Drive, Flow.”
