Proxy Epoxy Ridiculite

ideally suited to waves slightly overhead and under

Shaper's Note:

The unique construction of the “Proxy Ridiculite” series (Ultralightweight reinforced w/ carbon stringer patches) yields a board that self-adjusts its rocker to fit the changing curve of the wave. This ‘suspension system’ creates increased torque and drive leading into, and following out of, maneuvers. This construction is ideally suited to waves slightly overhead and under. The future of surfing is boards with self-adjusting rocker that form-fit to the curve of the wave, making your second, third u0026amp; forth maneuvers bigger and more powerful; even though the wave may be losing momentum, your board will be gaining speed.

Instead of using standard fiberglass cloth in the glassing process, a combination of S-glass and a specialty woven unidirectional carbon stringer matrix is employed. This board layup exhibits increased / enhanced flex characteristic; while the structural integrity of the board’s break strength is kept intact with use of strategic carbon reinforcement

1 >> proxy epoxy composite :::

High Impact Hybrid Foam Core  // [a lightweight (lighter than teamlite Proxy epoxy) foam that yields a higher compression strength and has very limited water absorption if dinged]

2 >> S-Glass :::

S-glass is the highest-grade fiberglass available and will make any board significantly stronger.   It is available in 4oz. and 6oz.

3 >> Hybrid/Epoxy resins :::

engineered for maximum break strength, as well as a “loaded” rebound response characteristic, we use a unique blend of resins that yields an ultra-white uv stabilized aesthetic

RIDICULITE – fright-light, crazy flex, ultimate performance, about twice as strong as a poly

TEAMLITE – ultralight, crazy flex, ultimate performance, 2-3 x stronger than a poly

MIDDLEWEIGHT – best strength to weight ratio, 3-5+ x stronger than a poly

SUPER-DUTY – indestructo, 5+ x stronger than pretty much any board out there

Care for your Proxy surfboard simply consists of keeping it watertight; ie. If you do get a ding, just allow it to dry out and then repair it with epoxy resin specifically made for surfboard repair; or if you take it to a shop to repair, make sure you let them know to use epoxy resin. That’s it. Also, use the same common sense care you would for a polyester board, just don’t leave it laying in the sun. If you have any questions, let us know. 

“You can feel it bending into the face of the wave when you push through turns and it has so much thwang in the lip. Perfect for all kinds of different waves as an everyday board.” – Nick Rozsa
