The Carve Up, 17/02/17 - video

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

This week on The Carve Up the lads welcome Nick Miles from X-Core Reactor Blanks onto the show. Nick talks about the move away from the central stringer on surfboards and how his unique tech works. The blanks are getting a run by Channel Islands, Simon Anderson, and Greg Webber, amongst others.

At the ten minute mark Silky turns the volume up on Craig Brokensha who gives the national weekend surf report - which WA wins, yet again.

Wanna learn more about X-Core?

I'd love to to ride a traditional wooden stringer back to back with an X-core in the same waves to see if I could really notice the difference. The tech angle seems to make sense but the proof I suppose will be if the market embraces them en masse.

Very diplomatic of Craig regarding the Micks wave vid.

Ignorance is Zen

Is the tail of a Xcore blank stiil going to flex with me on it ....87kgs size 11 feet back foot on the tail pad - front foot close to center of the board... this would negate 90% of flex wouldnt it ?
