Pukas TASTY TREAT by Axel Lorentz
We want to extend to a wider audience the use of a high-performance surfboard. Taking the Pukas Tasty as a starting point, we have made a more friendly version of it; we have tweaked the dims, made it shorter, a bit wider and thicker.
This is Axel Lorentz’s take on his new design: “I made some little changes to the outline to increase the overall area in the nose. I have added volumen under the chest to help catching the wave and make it more enjoyable and less erratic.”
By moving down the tail rocker we have made it faster. “The Pukas Tasty Treat now suits the shape of a smaller wave and excels in less curvy walls”, says Axel, “and allows high-performance surfing to a broad audience, not just the experienced surfers”.
Axel has also re-designed the rail to avoid that thick rail feeling.
Innegra fiber compliments other composite fibers lending itself to a variety of applications in a multitude of markets. Automotive, luggage, protective products, radomes, ballistics, and aerospace, to name a few, can benefit from the tough, lightweight, energy absorbing, and hydrophobic properties of our fiber.
What properties do you need to improve in your product? Decreased weight? Increased toughness? Innegra fiber may be your answer. Contact us to discuss how we may assist your company in meeting and exceeding your demanding technical requirements
Sport & Marine Applications
Innegra material is used in many different sport and marine applications. Andy Murray racked up quite a few wins using his HEAD YOUTEK IG racquet, including the Olympics and Wimbledon. Dane Jackson flipped his way to a gold at the Freestyle Kayak World Championship in his kayak made with the Innegra H material. In addition, you can find Innegra in Bauer goalie sticks, Berk Composite bicycle saddles, Mirage kayaks, AT whitewater paddles, Fanatic's windsurf boards, SUP boards, and SUP paddles. Innegra fiber can enhance the impact resistance and damage tolerance while reducing weight and vibration in all of these applications.
Benefits to using
Minimizes Catastrophic Failure
Carbon fibers have several advantages including high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion. These properties have made carbon fiber very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports. However, they are relatively expensive when compared with similar fibers, such as glass fibers or plastic fibers.
