LAST YEAR WAS THE RELEASE OF THIS VERSATILE, ALL-ROUND CABLE BOARD ENDORSED BY JULES CHARRAUD.
Develop the foundation of your cable riding with this soft, yet durable, aquatic sidekick featuring full Speedwalls and a classic twin shape with our all-Paulownia wood core construction. Launch your cable career with the 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.

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…
Made with vertical Paulownia stringers running tip to tail, the core tapers from the middle of the board to the ends, creating a variable flex that increases the yield in a press.
In the tip/tail of the board, we have varying depths that will allow the board to bend easier and with more exaggeration. With Springbox those high points are made from extruded rods that give a rider more spring out of their press.
Over several seasons we developed different styles of stringers acting as a spine for the board. Riders are looking for the energy to transfer from the tail and drive through the tip. They also want a board that will conform and adapt from side to side without sacrificing durability.
ALL OVER FLEX
For the rider that wants the whole board to bend - creating the most surface area on a rail - and knows the board won’t have a rigid fulcrum point that will help with the snap back.
