The Torq Longboard 8ft 6 surfboard in the Pinline/Yellow colour for this Summer season.
The 8ft 6 Longboard would make the perfect first 'proper' surfboard after mastering the basics on a foamy or a moulded board in the surf-school. Far from being purely a learners board, the Torq Longboard is the ideal craft to fine tune your surfing and a good option for the surfer who wants a bit more volume than the Funboard but is not keen on a full size longboard. This tried and tested longboard shape has been fine tuned over the years by board shapers who surf, so competent surfers can still have a blast in smaller weaker conditions. The full nose allows the board to plane and catch waves early and the soft, forgiving rails up front and sharp at the back are forgiving but with enough bite to hold in steeper waves.
Torq Surfboards are constructed using the most up-to-date Epoxy Technology, using the latest EPS Epoxy Materials. The lightweight EPS Core is combined with Biaxial fibreglass cloth, Epoxy resin and Torq's unique Shield Skin.
This unique combination of advanced materials and high-tech construction produces a board that performs at the very highest level, offering lightweight shapes with a responsive flex (missing on some cheaper Epoxy boards) but also makes for a really durable and strong surfboard. Your new Torq surfboard will keep you stoked from your first wave to your last. Enjoy!
