The EPIC are HB's flagship models with cutting edge shapes, fresh colour ways and proven performance capabilities, just check James Kates and his surfing.....
The Raw curve has been taken from one of our most popular signature models. With the input of the HB Core Team, we’ve dialled in the dimensions for prone riding in medium to heavy surf, with the developing rider in mind.
A core model from yester year, the RAW has returned to the 2019 lineup. The new Spec’d out model features the new REX stringer system, 60/40 dual layered rails, RAW graphic print as well as upgraded deck skin and deck blubs for extra comfort. This board was designed to be the workhorse, designed for longevity through punishment.
CORE: PP (1.9lb polypropylene)
STRINGER: RX STRINGERRX (Resin Extruded) stringers are formed via the latest in Pultrusion technology. Slightly heavier and sturdier than our EGF stringers, RX stringers are used in our Tech, Epic and Raw ranges featuring HD slicks. (Note: Stringers do not prevent creasing – please check for stringer placement when drilling leash plug).
SLICK: HD – HIGH DENSITY SLICK SKIN with Mesh
Hard wearing, high-density slick bottom skin for improved board stiffness and speed.
DECK: Wave Cushion Air PP Deck
8lb. non-crosslink Polyethylene outer skins. The premier skin for high performance bodyboarding.
RAILS: IXLPE Inner Rail/ Cellucushion Outer Rail, Double 50/50 rails
