In 2012 Mat Pendle got hooked to paddle boarding. At that time he was riding full fiberglass boards as a primary choice, but also inflatable boards, if he needed to pack down and store them in his car to do stuff in town.
“Every day before going to the beach, I had to decide between the two but one day, the idea suddenly came to my mind: if I could combine a fiberglass hardtail and an inflatable nose, this would be incredible.”, Mat Pendle
Before building the first board, Mat refined the idea by preparing a Patent and the potential folded out in to a bag concept from paddle boards to windsurf boards and surfboards.
Enjoy the limitless performance of DUO, provided by the high stiffness and shape stability of the hard tail, combined with minimized pack space needed thanks to the inflatable Nose.
inflatable comfort and hard tail performance in ONE board!The concept exceeds any expectations in terms of having fun, being unbelievably relaxed, when moving around and travelling.
Never hesitate putting your board in the car and never miss an unexpected opportunity to get on the water for any session in wave or flat water.
Pumping up the board to max 15 PSI is faster and more comfortable compared to any full inflatable board.
The air section also becomes much more rigid thanks to its shorter length.
The performance of the hard tail, combined with the inflatable section provides ideal dual-combination, with the hard tail allowing you to use fiberglass fins for greater rigidity and offering shape fidelity, that every performance board needs especially on the tail-rails, being the critical point and limit of shape of any inflatable board (boxy and soft).
In this way we integrated an inflatable nose in to a full classic shape from the step area all the way down to the tail-end achieving performance and ease of use.
