PRS and Skintec: Nomad's R&D at work

Nomad has announced the introduction of two technological innovations in their 2014/2015 range of bodyboards.

The Australian brand will add a precision recoil stringer (PRS) to the new line of Supreme bodyboards, to be launched on July 1st.

The PRS is a tapered carbon fibre stringer, with a thicker, wider diameter in the tail to keep it stiff, that 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," Nomad explains.

The second innovation is Skintec, an advanced compression cell technology developed for professional bodyboarding.

"The multi-layered polymer composition allows for the skin to absorb pressure and impact compressions, creating increased strength and recoil making for a more responsive performance board."

The Nomad Supreme Series include the new Chris James, Michael Novy, Matt Lackey, and updated Nomad FSD Supreme Models.

Nazaré probably is the most powerful beach break. The Portuguese big wave surfing spot is as exciting as it will test your limits - as a surfer and as a human being.
