PRIDE Answer PP SDC Bodyboard

Pride Bodyboards The Answer PP SDC 

Ever wondered why PLC rips so hard? Here's the Answer. 

Pierre-Louis Costes hasn't changed the outline of his board since he signed with us in 2011. The reason is simple: he found the perfect one for his riding. He has won 2 World Titles and more than 15 world tour events on this template. The Answer is a narrow, thin, and pretty straight bodyboard suited for those who seek speed and control, with a relatively low volume.

This version of the Answer comes equipped with the latest Kinetic Polypro Core is an advanced bodyboard core that is lightweight (1.9 lbs PCF) and fused together to create a nucleus that offers exceptional flex properties, such as immediate recoil, increased longitudinal stiffness, and impressive compression strength. It is used by all professionals today.

Single to Double bottom contour increases lift and speed in smaller conditions by optimizing water flow beneath your board. It has become the current standard for highest-quality bottom contours.


  • Pierre Louis Costes Signature Template
  • SDC SYSTEM- Line Contour Deck- read below for more details.
  • 1X CFT STRINGER- High-grade filament wound composite-fiber tube rod placed inside of the core of the board for increased board strength and spring-like recoil.
  • Parallel Channels 
  • 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.
  • REACT MESH - Diamond shaped mesh weave fused between the boards core and slick bottom skin for enhanced stiffness and recoil.
  • 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.
  • NOSE AND TAIL BUMPERS- Extra padding along the edge of the board to give extra strength and durability, making your board last much longer.
  • Line Contour Deck
SDC- Single to Double Concave= Water Flow Maximized

Some very basic fluid mechanics principles have been adapted to our case by our Pride Lab engineers. “When the water flow goes from a bigger section to a smaller section, the flow speed decreases and the pressure increases.” “Using this principle as an analogy to what happens below our boards (if water is coming from both side of the board), if the perimeter of the concave narrows, water will encounter resistance at the end of the concave creating a pressure which push up the board creating more lift. As a result, having a concave will add a greater sense of lift. Which also means more speed in smaller conditions." The Double Concave is coupled with the classic deep Hull channels.
