EMPIRE Swerve 3/2 PP+ Bodyboard

The Empire Swerve is ready for action in any conditions with his versatile template. You can jump up on the knee and bash a section or fling yourself out of that big dreamy bowl. This is the perfect board to help you figure out what's going to be right for you, it's not too narrow, not too wide, but just right. The added mesh and 1x stringer will combine to give you that perfect amount of flex inside those critical sections while the 3/2 Concave Channel system will ensure you have the speed and control for when you set your line. This board can handle anything you throw at it and is a one of kind board with all its features. 

Features

  • KINETIC CORE™ (PP)- Constructed from premium grade 1.9 lb density Arpro Polypropylene resins, Kinetic Core™ delivers amazing projection and response as a result of high pressure cell-fusion created during the blank manufacturing process. Kinetic Core is a warm water core available in various reinforcement configurations, each tuned for specific wave conditions.
  • NXLPE WAVE CUSHION Deck Skin 8lb Non-Crosslink Polyethylene outer skins. The premier skin for high performance bodyboarding.
  • DECK CONTOURS
  • 3/2 = 5 Concave System that brings you 3 Extra Deep Concave channels to optimize speed and control & 2 interior concave channels for maximum responsiveness and engagement on the wave face.    Empire has worked tirelessly over the last few years to develop a functional channel system to perform in all conditions. Concaves One, Three, and Five all have increased depth, width, and length to serve as hulls to produce more hydrodynamic lift which results in maximum speed and drive. The two inner concaves are designed to optimize stabilization and engagement on the wave face to produce maximum hydrodynamic flow resulting in the most proficient channel system ever created by Empire.This unique channel system permits for a quick and responsive feel for line adjustments while trimming and driving down the line. This board is designed with two things in mind: Speed + Control.
  • SURLYN® Slick w/ Swerve graphic lines - Surlyn is a unique, rubber like combination of ethylene resins and other copolymers invented and manufactured by the chemical geniuses at DuPont. Unlike rigid plastics, Surlyn has amazing flexural stiffness that allows a board to conform and contort to the curve of the wave when controlled by applied pressure from the rider. When the torque is released, the dynamic memory properties of the Surlyn deliver instant recoil, projecting the board onto the next section. Surlyn is so strong that it is used as the cover for golf balls due to its unique abilities to resist cutting and abrasions from golf club impact. Surlyn is the slick of choice for high end bodyboards.
  • REACT MESH- Diamond shaped mesh weave fused between the boards core and slick bottom skin for enhanced stiffness and recoil.
  • 1x CFT Stringer- High grade, light weight filament wound composite-fiber tube for increased board strength and spring like recoil.
  • Crescent Tail- Classic 45 degree angle on a 385 degree radius cut. Loose and responsive, Crescent Tails are the preferred tail shape of the Pro Team's. CNC cut for maximum precision.
  • NOSE BULBS

Manufactured in Indonesia at Broady Indonesia, home of the best shapers in the world and the leader of Bodyboard Quality and Technology.

Care Instructions

*Like sunburnt skin, foam boards blister and bubble when left exposed and unprotected in the sun. Keep your board covered in a cool shady place when not being ridden and avoid a "baking" car on any hot, sunny day.

*Rinse your board off with cool, fresh water after every use to avoid salt water corrosion.

*Don't skim or sand slide on your board unless it's a skim board.

*(If applies) Plug your board in the recommended location. We mark with a sticker where our stringers are while in the packaging so be sure to plug it about an inch from that. We are happy to pre-plug your new board, just ask us to!
