THERMOFORMED WITH EPS CORE
Under heat and pressure, in precision aluminum moulds, we thermoform a highly durable, impact resistant skin over a moulded, watertight EPS foam core. TOUGH-TEC boards are a major step forward in durability while offering lighter weight, higher performance, and increased durability compared to the older DURA-TEC technology. They are ideal for beginners, schools and clubs.
A HIGHLY DURABLE CONSTRUCTION
Polyethylene is an extremely durable and versatile material. The raw material for the process is polyethylene micro balls, which are melted and extruded into 3 mm thick impact resistant sheets. This becomes the shield of our boards, an extremely strong outer shell for enhanced product lifetime and zero waste during the production process. It also shows a very low material impurity ratio, giving a clean mat finish and pure colour. The Anti-UV treatment prevents yellowing and material degradation. This envelope, together with our moulded EPS foam cores, are key to offering one of the most durable constructions on the market today.
SHAPED BY JON HENDERSON SANTA CRUZ
SIC worked with veteran Santa Cruz, California shaper Jon Henderson to create the Drifter. Henderson has been shaping boards for more than 30 years and has honed his craft and shapes through his custom brand and while shaping for many other leading surf brands throughout the years. Henderson understands that a shape like the Drifter needs work in waves everywhere and has therefore drawn on his decades of experience to design a board that can be surfed in breaks around the world.
