The highly adaptable Grip TE enables you to ride your wave your way, without compromise.

For 2023, our radical performance wave board has been completely redesigned in all sizes, with focus on highly improved wave performance with minimal effect to the planing performance.

We slightly moved the overall trim back (mast track, stance) allowing more surfy turns and tight reactions on the wave.

The overall trim leads to significantly improved rail to rail turns and direct response.

The surfy rocker was paired with a new progressive outline with a wider swallow tail for better manoeuvrability and turns, while the new bottom shape with deeper double concaves in the planning area results in controlled top speed

Turning is a different world with our newly developed Grips. The boards feel smaller, more playful and offer a new level of looseness and control – particularly in down the line conditions. Whether full rail turns or tight slashes, the new shapes impress with direct reactions, lots of drive and plenty of grip in the turn.

The Grip TE is extremely versatile with multiple fin options to work both as a Quad and Thruster, even in the biggest sizes.

Available in a new size split of 69 / 76 / 81 / 87 / 93 / 99 and the new floaty 107 for heavier riders and lighter winds.

Comes in our unique Biax Innegra Carbon Light Finish technology - the ultimate construction for all our wave and freestyle TE boards.
