very good technology , pretty expensive , but they use an i-blank which is a waterproof EPS blank , and very good laminations.....Javier has been doing them for a decade or more , have heard no negatives , he has a great stable of brands and makes a lot of Tomo's and Slater customs !!

Didn't know you could get them in OZ

Haven't tried them but would like too, always up for riding new builds.

I saw one or two CI’s on the Onboard store website a while ago... all gone now. Very interested in getting one.

Whats the difference between XTR and varial? Seems to be a similar foam type? Maybe different construction techniques? Ride reports of either?

Thats a good question, they do seem very similar.

I think i have ridden one of them not sure what one (looked like blue foam?) one of Robbie page's boards (he was working with some label from France who was making them and at Maccas when i was there) but dims and shape wasn't to my liking so didn't get much out of it, board felt like a pig to me.
