Med Small Pro Shape 5/8" 2012 Brad Domke Signature Pro Model Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy Skimboard - Textured Finish
MANUFACTURED ONLY from the highest quality fabrics, epoxy, and PVC core, our carbon fiber skimboards are well tested by the best skimboarders in the world, in the heaviest conditions on earth. Here are some of the features of this board.
DOUBLE CARBON FIBER - Carbon Fiber is practically synonymous with top of the line in any industry. This fabric is highly coveted in skimboards for its extreme strength and stiffness. Carbon fiber fabrics are about twice as strong and stiff as E-Glass. Boards made with this material come out a little stronger, a little lighter and a whole lot stiffer than S-Glass boards.
THE PRO SHAPE is best suited to advanced riders who want maximum speed on the wave. The longer profile and narrower nose of these boards makes them faster down the line and on siders, but not as comfortable in the pocket of the wave. But since the riders knows what he's doing, he doesn't need any extra help riding the barrel.
THE DOMKE ROCKER has slightly less rocker in the nose than Paulo's rocker, and an even larger flat spot in the middle of the board. This drastically increase the speed of the board, especially while side-slipping. This rocker will also make the board a little tougher to ride, especially on beaches with steep sand to water transfers. This rocker is a popular choice for East Coasters, but is still very ridable on the west coast as Brad proves time and time again.
5/8" THICKNESS - 5/8" is the thinner of the two thickness options that Exile offers. The thinner profile makes the boards turn on a dime relative to their thicker brethren. The additional manueverability does come at the cost of a little bit of speed, however.
TEXTURED FINISH - Our Textured Deck finish is a high performance option that no other manufacturer offers (though some try to imitate). Our Textured Deck boards come out a little lighter than our gloss boards as well as stronger and significantly more durable. It is the finish of choice for the entire Exile Team as well as experienced customers who are more focused on performance than cosmetics. (Requires sanding for traction pad application)
RESIN ART - New for 2012, Exile is offer resin art on the bottom of our boards. This is a low cost way to add a little extra individual style to your board without adding any extra weight. Brad chose to have all his boards in 2012 come with this resin art so that each one is slightly unique and different from the next!
