The Empire Duo PE + deck contours is a great beginner/intermediate board for riders who need a durable board to take your riding to new heights. Made with a PE core and 1x EFT Stringer, it will give you some flex for when maximum control of the board is needed. The template is prone specific with enough volume in the nose to support the shoulders and a smooth curve through the wide-point, transitioning to the tail for down the line speed. The deck contours improve backhand grip and the single EXT™ Stringer delivers a spring-loaded spine for more pop. This board is a premium quality PE bodyboard that's ready for action right out of the packaging.

EXT STRINGER - EXT Stringers are high-strength, epoxy fibre tubes for increased stiffness and board life. (Note: Stringers do not prevent creasing.)
Buzz-Tech process hot air lamination system thermo-fuses the outer skins to the core with calibrated pre and post-set rocker tension for optimum board recoil and projection.
CAD designed templates precision cut with CNC shaping machines for superior accuracy and consistency. Skilled craftsmen sand, trim, rail and roll each and every board for a high quality finish.
Graduated Channels increase the surface area of the boards slick bottom and channels that laminar flow along the rail/ hull for positive edge control.
Die-cut foam bulbs are positioned at each corner of the nose to enhance finger grip. They now feature a new, curved contour for an even better handle.
