Channel Islands SPINE-TEK is a collaboration with Shapers Australia. The Spine is a precision engineered stringer that is created from a unique composition of fiberglass and resin. A little bit of science become involved through the principles of elastic and kinetic energy in order to form natural flex patterns. The CI team riders were used in the development faze to assist the shapers in finding a method that found the boards best possible flex pattern.
An ideal combination was found to allow the surfboard to load up with energy during flex and then release the energy when required, helping with drive, speed, power and flow. The Spine only weighs a quarter of a pound and replaces the traditional heavier timber stringer. Inside this EPS construction youre now getting a board with the benefits of EPS and natural flex the SPINE-TEK provides.
