42" Empire Botha Hammer Limited Bodyboard

$ 300.00 USD

Botha Hammer PE w/Tension Tech (very limited run) Bodyboard

Featuring:

  • PE CORE- gives the bodyboard flex which generates projection and instant response for the rider. PE is also good for colder water conditions, since low water temperatures increase the stiffness of all cores.
  • TENSION TECH™ - Tension Tech™ takes advanced sandwich composite principles and applies them to Kinetic™ and NRG™ cores for next level recoil and projection. A bi-axial Mesh layer is thermo-fused between 2 cross linked polypropylene skins. The resulting Mesh Fusion Layer is then laminated directly to the core, under the deck, greatly increasing the board's tensile and compressive strength. The dynamic properties of Tension Tech™ allow us to build a board that’s thinner, stronger and stiff, but at the same time, possesses incredible elastic flex for instant recoil and spring-like projection.

  • Botha Deep Channels
  • SURLYN® Slick  - Surlyn is a unique, rubber like combination of ethylene resins and other copolymers invented and manufactured by the chemical geniuses at DuPont. Unlike rigid plastics, Surlyn has amazing flexural stiffness that allows a board to conform and contort to the curve of the wave when controlled by applied pressure from the rider. When the torque is released, the dynamic memory properties of the Surlyn deliver instant recoil, projecting the board onto the next section. Surlyn is so strong that it is used as the cover for golf balls due to its unique abilities to resist cutting and abrasions from golf club impact. Surlyn is the slick of choice for high end bodyboards.
  • DOUBLE REACT MESH- Deck and Slick Mesh. Diamond shaped mesh weave fused between the boards core and slick bottom skin for enhanced stiffness and recoil. 
  • 2X CFT HIGH PERFORMANCE STRINGERS
  • SWALLOW TAIL
  • XFL Crosslink Bumpers
