Specifications

  • A hybrid wakeboard for air-tricks and riding over obstacles we developed specially for girls. Our efforts resulted in a fast board allowing for aggressive edging.

Specifications

This is basically a ladies’ TAD board.

In comparison with its male counterpart, it has a different core profile and carbon reinforcements.

We’d like to introduce to you our new hybrid board. We aimed at developing a wakeboard for air tricks as an addition to the Nip wakeboard that was designed specially for riding over obstacles.

We had to find the delicate balance between aggressive edging, great manoeuvrability, perfectly controlled turning and explosive pop. In order to achieve these characteristics we narrowed the outline at the tips which, in combination with the large channels on the bottom, offer quick edging and surgically precise turning. These two, large, asymmetrical depressions at the tips work as fins when turning.

In the middle of the board, there are two longitudinal, sharply cut channels that help stabilize the board when landing after a jump. Their special 3D profile pushes the water in front of and behind the board along its longitudinal axis thus ensuring your stylish landing after a trick.

Dragon Fly has a lower core profile and a carbon reinforcement in the middle.

Girls’ needs are often overlooked which means they have to ride on boys’ boards. We wanted our Dragon Fly wakeboard to have identical performance to TAD while carrying a lower load. We optimized the Dragon Fly’s stiffness by changing the profile of the core and adjusting the position of the carbon reinforcement.

In comparison to TAD, this board has a softer centre for a more controlled edging and softer tips with high pop.

Features

3d machined woodcore
The core is CNC machined with an accuracy of 0.1 mm. This accuracy allows us to fine-tune the riding performance of our products.

Hydrodynamic bottom contour – wake specific
The profile of the 3D shape is designed with a view to its hydrodynamic properties needed for air tricks and park riding.

Quadraxial fibreglass
Quadraxial fibreglass is woven from fibres with 4 different orientations. We have it custom-made so that we're able to fine-tune the board's flex and torsion by choosing the correct weight and thickness of the individual directions of fibres.

Lite Carbon power stringers
Reinforcements from uni-directional carbon fibres improve the flex along the long axis of the board. Their position, weight and width help to optimize the performance.

Rubber dampened edge
To improve shock absorption and increase durability, we use VDO anti-vibration rubber on the joints of the base and the ABS sidewall.

Asymmetrical sidewall
The sidewall is sanded in the 90:10 ratio where on its upper side the profile of the core gets thinner towards the edges to allow for quicker and tighter turning.

Slide base
The sintered slide base was specially designed for wakeboarding and has a hardness of 9.2 × 10⁶ mol.

Bombproof inserts
The inserts are placed in beech stringers passing through the core. Moreover, they are reinforced with quadraxial carbon fabric.
