Renowned surfer and shaper, Dan Mann, has developed a high tech blank with a carbon interior part that gives the shaper and ultimately the surfer infinite control over the flex of the surfboard. Think of a snowboard inCide a surfboard: all the magic and flex of your favorite board with faster recoil that lasts.
...is designed to maximize and control the flex of the surfboard in a carbon structure that functions independent to the shape and thickness of the board. Until now, the structure of a surfboard has been reliant on the wood stringer, an unpredictable organic material, that eventually breaks down over time. With INCIDE's patent pending technology, 'THE BRAIN' improves the properties of a wood stringer, enabling 'fast twitch' flex from carbon fiber to be tuned independently from the design of the surfboard prior to the board being shaped.

Carbon is the foundation for all organic matter - it is manipulated into strands (carbon fiber) then woven into a cloth which we use to create 'THE BRAIN'. Five times stronger then steel, two times as stiff, yet weighs two-thirds less, this ultra high performance material translates into a more responsive and durable surfboard.

Flex is best decribed as the way a board bends, then recoils as it comes back to static. The faster the recoil, the more lively the board feels. Feeling this response is what gives that magic board feeling. The key to INCIDE's blanks is that we have the ability to control this flex independent from the design.
