Tristan Roberts Realest Radial Flex SDC Bodyboard
The Realest is Tristan Roberts (2019 World Champion) Pro-Model.
Realest: adjective - term created by Tupac Shakur to describe a state of being honest, truthful, raw and respected.
A word that suits both Tristan Roberts and his riding to perfection, also inspired by his love for 90s hip-hop.
This model, equipped with Radial Flex & Single to Double concave, mesh & surlyn slick has more volume than other pro-model in our range. It is also the most advanced technology allowing the greatest speed, durability and projection.
- Tristan Roberts Signature Template
- Core- POLYPROPYLENE (PP) Radial Flex- read below for more details.
- SDC SYSTEM- Line Contour Deck- read below for more details.
- SURLYN® Slick Bottom- Surlyn is a unique, rubber like combination of ethylene resins and other copolymers invented and manufactured by the chemical geniuses at DuPont. Unlike rigid plastics, Surlyn has amazing flexural stiffness that allows a board to conform and contort to the curve of the wave when controlled by applied pressure from the rider. When the torque is released, the dynamic memory properties of the Surlyn deliver instant recoil, projecting the board onto the next section. Surlyn is so strong that it is used as the cover for golf balls due to its unique abilities to resist cutting and abrasions from golf club impact. Surlyn is the slick of choice for high end bodyboards.
- REACT MESH - Diamond shaped mesh weave fused between the boards core and slick bottom skin for enhanced stiffness and recoil.
- 1X CFT STRINGER- A high-grade filament wound composite-fiber tube rod placed inside of the core of the board for increased board strength and spring-like recoil.
- Clipped CRESCENT TAIL- The clipped crescent tail is the most popular crescent tail option. This tail will perform when driving, turning, carving and releasing. Clipping the tail allows the rider to maximize their drive and maintain control through the outer concaves and clipped areas.
- Tail Piece
- Realest Deck Contours
- 55/45 Double Rails
- NOSE AND TAIL BUMPERS- Extra padding along the edge of the board to give extra strength and durability, making your board last much longer.
Radial Flex Meets Single to Double Concave
We’ve coupled our most advanced technologies to bring you the most high-end board ever made.
The Radial Flex® has been developed by the Pride Lab® in order to distribute the structural weight of the rider ideally on the board. It also allows to keep some flex under the elbow, where you need it the most, while making it stiffer on the lower two thirds of the board.
The Single to Double concave has been designed to maximize the water flow under your board – which gives you more speed. The combination of both gave birth to the most functional and effective board on the market. The Single to Double concave has been adapted to perfectly fit the Dynamic Arc® shape while maximizing both technologies’ amazing properties. We thoroughly tested the board throughout the year and it’s working magic.
