The Native -Balsa skinned EPS foam core shortboard
For summer and its small waves, the Native is a thruster thrasher for the larger or old generation – who don’t want to go to a longboard or a fish – this is in between these.
For the travelling surfer we are using the Australian made boxes that blend in to the balsa and fit all FCS fins. This allows for changing fin setups and lets you choose between fin size, rake, angles, material, and more.
The Native is a balsa skinned EPS foam core shortboard. The recycled EPS foam and the absence of a stringer create a significant reduction in weight bringing the Native to merely 3kg (excluding fins). The end result is a high performance balsawood surfboard with far greater strength and durability than your regular polyurethane board.
