Tom Carroll Loose Leaf 9’6 x 29.5 x 4 1/4 = 130 Litres
DESIGN: Inspired by Tom Carroll’s lust for riding waves with no limitations. The overall design focuses on providing control through efficient water flow, and remarkable response through specially designed bottom curves and a more refined outline.
PERFORMANCE: Highly responsive with just the right amount of control, this board is ideal for those adventuring from the intermediate to advanced end of their wave riding skills.
CONTOURS: The unique bottom contours reduce rail volume and drag without sacrificing wave riding sensitivity. The deep double concave displacement hull allows free flowing water movement through the underside of the nose and enhances a positive connection to the wave face on steeper drops. Subtle concave through the centre leads into a pronounced spiral vee out the tail, which provides quick turning capabilities and effortless roll from rail-to-rail.
ROCKER: Moderate nose lift combined with a smooth rocker profile out through the tail allows this board to accelerate quickly off the mark and fit in the most critical parts of the wave at multiple angles of attack. The rocker has also been designed to allow forward movement when paddling into waves, and easy turning when driving off the tail zone.
FINS: Versatile 4 + 1 set up comes with the new FCS II TC SUP quad set for ultimate pivoting and turning response. The 6″ TC Paddle Surf single fin can be used with either the quad side or rear fins providing a more controlled feel.
CARBON VECTOR TECHNOLOGY
Carbon Vector (CV) construction delivers unmatched performance by harnessing the flex characteristics of epoxy and the strength of carbon. CV combines a stringerless, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a distinctive carbon fiber webbing, (positioned on the bottom and around the rails).
The carbon fiber webbing serves to evenly distribute tension across the entire surface area of the board to produce a lively, yet controlled flex pattern with remarkable memory recall. The biaxial fiberglass on the deck serves to add strength and also help prevent delaminating. CV boards feel fast, light and highly responsive in all conditions.
Created by GSI to compliment a range of board models and designs, this construction has proven to have superior flex properties over our other board technologies by up to 20%.
