“LIGHTER AND MORE RESPONSIVE”

The torq TET-CS, or Carbon Strip utilises the same advanced TET process with a performance oriented lay-up. The TET-CS Mod Fun features a UD Carbon Strip on the base and deck for strength but allows torsional flex.

These boards feel more lively than the standard TET; slightly lighter and more responsive, making them even more fun to surf, but just as strong as before.

Description

“…COMBINATION OF STABILITY AND PROGRESSION”

The Volume Plus (V+) takes the trend for high volume wide surfboards into the Funboard model, creating a board with the stability and paddle ability of a much longer board, but in a compact, easier to turn package.

These boards suit all surfers of all abilities, whether looking for a first surfboard or quiver builder for fun days. The high volume makes it super easy to catch waves while the rocker and bottom contours make this lively and agile underfoot with more performance than you would expect from a larger board. Great for beginner surfers and great for bigger surfers wanting a shorter board. The V+ has a thruster fin setup.

Fins:
Torq TET surfboards all come with fins. The ModFish comes with 5 fin boxes for either Quad or Thruster set up and supplied with a Thruster fin set as standard. The ModFun and Mini-Long shapes come with 3 fin boxes and a Thruster fin set offering an even balance of drive and release for all round surfing. The Torq Longboard comes with a 2+1 set up, offering all round performance with the option of single fin only.TET Carbon Strip Epoxy Construction: The Torq TET-CS, or Carbon Strip, utilizes the same advanced TET process but with a performance-oriented lay-up. The deck has a lighter weight glassing schedule but an additional impact mesh deck patch designed to spread the force of impact to reduce dings. The Mod Fish shapes feature a UD Carbon Strip on the base for strength but allowing additional flex. On the Funboard and Longboards, the deck also features a UD Carbon Strip for additional strength. The result: less weight, same strength, and a killer new look.

 

Brand

Torq-surfboards

Launched in 2012, torq surfboards created a new standard in the epoxy surfboard market, offering an unmatched combination of strength and performance. This year sees the innovation step up a gear, with new shapes, new graphics and new technologies. The torq range now offers 4 types of boards for all levels of surfer. Torq TEC; Torq Epoxy Composite offers our user friendly performance shapes in our most advanced epoxy lay-up to date. Using a mix of Biaxial, plain weave fibres and Carbon, these boards offer the best strength to weight ratio on the market. Torq X-Lite is a brand new Epoxy technology developed specifically for performance boards. This is stronger and more Eco than a traditional PU/Polyester board. This new innovative technology is used exclusively on the Channel Islands model, the POD MOD Torq Epoxy Technology or TET represents a revolution in Epoxy surfboard technology. Built using the latest in EPS/Epoxy materials; the Torq Epoxy Technology combines a lightweight EPS core with Biaxial fibreglass cloth, Epoxy resin and our unique Shield Skin. Our Soft Deck board uses an additional PE deck skin over a full laminated core to offer a safe first time learning option in this durable easy surfing range.

THERE ARE MANY ASPECTS TO SURFBOARD SELECTION THESE ARE THE POINTS TO CONSIDER

LENGTH

Typically surfboards are measured in inches. The length is measured from the nose to the tail. Choosing the length of the surfboard is dependant on your size (weight, height), board type and waves conditions you wish to use the board for.

WIDTH

The widest point of the surfboard is measured from rail to rail. Generally the wider the surfboard the more stable the board, while a board with smaller width maintains better speed and performance.

BOARD THICKNESS

Surfboard thickness is measured from the top deck to the bottom. The thickness again has a bearing on the board’s performance. Professional surfers will tend to go for the thinner boards as they are lighter and offer better performance.The thicker boards are stronger and because there is more foam under the surfer the boards are more stable.

ROCKER

The bottom curve of a surfboard. Generally the more rocker the surfboard has the more loose (manoeuvrable) the surfboard will be. Where the flatter rocker surfboards will be faster, although they will lack the looseness. The nose is the tip of the surfboard, the nose can vary in shapes and size. Basically the thinner the nose the more response the board will perform, while wider noses are better for stabilization.

STRINGER

Used to increase the strength of a surfboard, a stringer (normally made from wood) runs down the length of a surfboards (typically in the centre of the board from the tip of the nose to the tail).
Boards built with Epoxy, Carbon Fibre and soft boards generally don’t have stringers.

FINS

Generally heavier surfers require larger fins to hold the waves better. Although if you prefer to ride a looser (less hold in the waves), smaller fins would be a better option.

FIN CONSIDERATIONS

Fin configurations have an effect on the ways your surfboards perform.
The following are some of the more common fin configurations.

SINGLE FIN

The single fin was the original fin configuration for surfboards. Based on the idea of the sailboat keel. Single fins are added stabilization and control on the powerful, larger waves, although lack manoeuvrability

TWIN FIN

Are great for small waves, being fast and manoeuvrable, but when put into tight spots on larger waves, they become hard to control. Popular with Fish surfboards.

THRUSTER 3 FIN

Widely recognized as the standard fin configuration, the thruster answers the shortcomings of the single fin and the twin fins configurations.
The thrusters give you stabilization, control and manoeuvrability in all types of surfing conditions.
This concept was the brainchild of Australia’s Simon Anderson

QUADS 4 FINS

With four fins in the water, Quads boasts an extraordinary amount of holding power in larger surf.
You may think that having four fins would sacrifice speed by creating more drag, but this is not the case.
The both sets of fins are working together on the rail, which makers believe they creates less drag than a board with a centre fin.
The manoeuvrability isn’t sacrificed either, with fins directly under your back foot, the quads are very responsive.

KEEL

Similar setup to the Twin Fin, although smaller (low profile) fins are generally placed wider (closer to the rails) on the surfboard.
Popular with Fish and Egg / Retro surfboards.
