New for 2023, a versatile, all-around cable board endorsed by Jules Charraud.
Develop the foundation of your cable riding with this new soft yet durable aquatic sidekick featuring fullSpeedwalls and a classic twin shape with our all-Paulownia wood core construction. Launch your cable career with the new Diplomat–built with stability, strength, and ease in mind. Our most affordable value is still built wood tough and eco-friendly. A perfect shape for entry level riders to get the feel of riding laps, or for high end boarders that like a conventional center flex. This proven shredder has two Grip and Release channels running on either side for more added traction than most park boards and a concave on the ends that helps with stability, edging, releasing, and bigger ollies.

ALL OVER FLEX
The softest wood layup where the entire board flexes in one movement without any restrictions.
We have a flex testing machine that can gauge the recoil of a board. The higher the number - the more the board will want to react back to its original rocker line. While the smaller number means the board will be softer and more compliant on rails.
HOW MUCH DOES IT FLEX?
Some boards are more adaptive on the water and features with a softer flex pattern. Others feel more secure and stable but aren’t as adaptive on rails.
WHERE DOES IT FLEX?
Where the board flexes is personal preference that will come overtime. Most of our cable boards have a leverage point where a certain part of the board compresses until the fulcrum kicks in with snap back. The most common 4 flex patterns are…
These riders want a traditional mid-section and extra pliable ends for more of a locked in feel on tip/tail presses and extra snap rebounding out of the press. This series allows a rider to exaggerate their press with the softest flex numbers in the tip/tail – but as the press gains a high degree of angle the center of the board prevents from folding over.
The Kinetik Project Flexbox 1 has a super soft belly but the rigid tip/tail gives the more snap off a feature and on air tricks. This series allows a rider to exaggerate their press with the lowest flex numbers in the center – but as the press builds because soft midsection then the traditional tip/tail prevents the board from folding over. For the rider that wants the biggest sweet spot with the most contact on rails.
Our latest flex pattern development has the softest outside flex, fused with a center spine that will provide a resistance point on a press. The strength runs the way a stringer does on a surfer, from tip to tail then leaves the majority of the outer surface area with a much softer horizontal wood. With the Atmos you have a pivot point running the length of the board, not just in certain pockets, allowing most of the board to comply from side to side with greater ease.
For the rider that wants the whole board to bend – creating the most surface area on a rail. The Women’s Spring Break board has a constant flex pattern running the entire surface area of the board. It might not snap back like our other flex patterns but it will really melt on rails with a really exaggerated press on rails.
