QCD Skintec: skin technology

The QCD Skintec is a limited edition of 60 bodyboards released with a new skin technology developed for high performance riding.

The Australian bodyboard company believes that their new technology allows pressure absorption and energy dispersion, during each wave ride.

"The Skintec layer is thermo-fused to the core, creating increased strength, drive, and recoil over the boards entire surface area while allowing the board to flex more evenly from nose to tail and rail to rail", says Todd Quiqley, QCD owner and head shaper.

"The increased strength has also allowed me to design this model thinner than my standard stock line which provides edge control and off the bottom speed without losing stiffness and inner core balance".

The QCD Skintec is an energy transfer layer system, designed to reduce impact compression by providing protection to the cores cell structure and integrity.

The board has been produced in both PP and EFC Red cores. Only 60 boards have been manufactured in total, with each board being individually numbered on a sticker on the front of the board.
