Eye Symmetry | Rapture 5'8" Yellow Crackle Rail - GhostFlex
The Rapture is a squashed down version of a traditional round square thruster designed to have minimal surface area to volume ratio. The Rapture has a smooth, relaxed rocker with low to medium lift in the nose and similarly low to medium tail lift. The foils of the board are quite unique and are designed in a way to maximize volume distribution throughout the shape. The entire deck of The rapture is almost flat, finishing with a bevel edge which runs along the entire length of the rail from the tail to the nose. This reduces the rail volume and maintains sensitivity in the board during rail to rail transitions. The creation of the hard edge at the rail also has another effect on the boards performance during critical maneuvers. The edge provides a flat surface for the water to shear off which reduces drag, thereby enhancing speed and performance. The Rapture is the ultimate small wave performance board for radical surfing.
GhostFlex is the name given to our stringer-less EPS lamination technique. Its name is derived from using only standard fiberglass and innegra glass (white in colour) hence on a clear board it is impossible to see any re-enforcement material at all! I believe that shaped performance boards have a great natural flex made by the shape of the board in the foam itself…I’m talking about the outline and foils of the board. GhostFlex honours this natural flex. It is composed of a custom made double bias fiberglass x innegra cloth, which is laminated on both sides of the board and cut inside the rail, following the curve of the board. To compensate for the lack of material on the rail we laminate a 100% innegra glass tape and then cover the entire board in a single layer of fiberglass. The result is a uniform lamination, which has no weak points, so therefore resistant to breakage as well as very high compression strength. Another benefit of Innegra glass is that it dampens the effect of chatter found in a lot of EPS boards making the board feel more smooth to the rider whilst also providing the lively feel from the EPS core.
