Designer Comments: “The ‘X’ is the maximum volume version of the 6’5” Superfused EPS. Designed for versatility to accommodate a wide range of board styles from Fishes to Big Guy Shortboards. The manufacturing process ensures uniform density and fusion throughout, thus allowing the shaper to use the maximum width of the blank if necessary. “ At 3” max thickness, this blank is identical to the previous version with 1/4” additional thickness along the entire length. Designed for high-performance Shortboards up to 20-1/4” in width, and will also accommodate small Fish models due to the extra thickness. An ideal blank for machine shaping.” ERIC ARAKAWA
