All BWSURF boards are built in Europe at Apple Tree, where an innovative manufacturing process was developed to ensure very light and yet very durable kiteboards offering a bullet proof construction that withstands the fierce pressures during riding on the board, but at the same time offer good flex for the best performance in the waves.
Strategically placed patches provide a durable platform for your feet. These patches are made from a super high strength PET honeycomb foam that is radically different from any other honeycomb on the market today. The honeycomb is set into the deck of the board; it doesn’t just sit on top of the foam. The patches are sandwiched between fiberglass layers, together they form a very dent resistant layer and prevent the deck under your feet from denting marks.
XPS is like EPS so it only works with epoxy resin. But it is different that it does not contain the beads that EPS has, that’s why call it closed foam. It means it’s completely waterproof! So no worries when you ding the board. just keep kiting and fix it later. XPS is notoriously hard to laminate, but BWS’ fusion tech makes it possible! The core is fused with the skin, this gives an optimal bond between skin and core, virtually eliminating de-lamination.
