Snowboard-inspired rail gains traction in Europe
Trinity Surfboards' parabolic sticks hint at a revolution in surf-design
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 September, 2012 : - - The simple pleasure of surfing will never change. Yet this is the dawn of a new age. Our sport has been evolving for decades. Now innovative surfers are breaking down the doors of perception and we are stepping through into a brave new world for surfing. Look around your local beach and you will see a wilder variety of boards than in any period in surfing’s history: thrusters, twinnies, quads, fishes, mini-mals, longboards, pintails, swallow-tails, squash-tails, flying pigs...
Welcome to ‘the new wave’ in Surfing. Trinity’s parabolic surfboards are spearheading a revolution in surf-design. After years of research – in high-tech computer labs, long sessions under the steady hand of some of the world’s most experienced shapers and ‘painstaking’ hours with test-pilots in the waves – the secret is out.
You might be a pro, pumping for speed towards longer and higher air-time, or a surf-stoked novice, struggling with your first shaky bottom-turn. Either way you owe it to your surfing to push the boundaries. The enhanced stability of a Trinity board is as much a boon to the shredding pro as to the novice, hovering with clenched teeth over that first steep drop down the face. The phenomenal acceleration and amazing red-line cruising speed of a Trinity board puts it halfway down the runway while traditional boards are still taxi-ing for take-off.
