Michael Novy is one of the world’s premier wave riders. Winning both an ABA Tour comp in 3ft surf and the ABA Big Wave Awards on a 15ft monster slab on the exact same day, Novy has proven how comfortable he is in all surf conditions.
Novy’s board model, nicknamed the ‘Cyclone’, is a board that has been designed for high performance moves that Novy is known for, like fast, smooth air forwards and air reverses. Novy rides the same template in all conditions, from maxing ‘The Right’ to 2 foot beachies.
Core: 1.9pcf Premium PP (A PP core of a 1.9 density is the industry standard for high performance bodyboards. This core material is designed for ultimate speed and projection. Its durability is unrivalled by any other core. Lightweight and rigid, this core will perform exceptionally well in warmer waters where other cores become slow and unresponsive).
Stringer: Precision Recoil Stringer (also known as PRS is a tapered carbon fibre stringer. The PRS is wider and stiffer at the tail of the board, and becomes narrower and more flexible as it gets closer to the nose of the board. This stringer works with the core adding spring like recoil in the nose while maintaining stiffness in the tail, the perfect combination for board projection.)
Deck: Michael Novy designed Contoured Cellu-cushion 8lb PE Deck (8lb Polyethylene is the most superior form of deck skin for any bodyboard offering sufficient strength to ensure a longer lasting board. The Michael Novy Contoured design allows your body to lock with your board when riding, ensuring the board is comfortable to ride and hold.)
Skintec Inlay: The most advanced compression cell technology ever developed for professional bodyboarding. The multi-layered Polymer composition is added under the deck skin of the board to allow for the skin to absorb pressure and impact compressions, creating increased strength & recoil making for a more responsive performance board. Skintec technology is only found in elite bodyboards).
Slick: DuPont Surlyn Slick (A Surlyn Slick is your only choice for slick if you demand the greatest amount of response and durability from your board. This high performance slick is the finest grade Surlyn made only by DuPont. Featuring an elastic-like quality to reduce the chance of creasing and damaging without minimising projection).
Rails: 55/45 Chine Double Rails (A rail design enabling a comfortable grip for holding the rails of the board when riding).
Channels: Yes (2 channels on the bottom of the board located at the tail to ensure stability and control on the face of the wave)
Tail: Clipped Crescent Tail (Provides superior control and hold on the wave face while also allowing for ease of rail to rail transitions and release from carves and spins.)
Additional Features: Nose Grips (Small bulbs on the underside of the nose of the board that enhance grip and control), Nose and Tail Buffers (An additional layer of padding on the nose and tail of the board that enhances longevity and durability), Two Piece Tail (An additional layer of 8lb PE Decking on the tail of the board to offer further support to the tail and visually look appealing).
