The "Formula 1".... is inspired by the ultimate performance of F1 racing cars. The perfect combination of speed and turning. Everything I have learned in 20 years of shaping, influenced by working with the best shapers and surfers in the world culminates into this. What I consider to be the perfect combination of both drive and glide with both carving arcs and tight radius turning. It features design elements from every high performance model we have ever made (From the SD series to the Whiplash and Psycho Ward). Simply put, it's our take on the modern, cutting edge, high performance short board. Now available in FST technology.
FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY
FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than the traditional PU surfboard. Please note our boards are definitely not indestructible and if slammed by a thick lip, or if you land incorrectly in the flats after doing an aerial, it is possible to break them.
The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures boards maintain their lively feel for longer.
With a retail price point slightly above premium polyurethane surfboards, FST offers an extremely high performance, durable surfboard.
