Launched in 2012, torq surfboards created a new standard in the epoxy surfboard market, offering an unmatched combination of strength and performance. This year sees the innovation step up a gear, with new shapes, new graphics, X-Lite collaborations with Channel Islands surfboards and the world’s first EPS/Epoxy Pre-Preg surfboard. The torq range now offers 5 types of surfboard technology for all levels of surfer.
ACT - Advanced Composite Technology is the world’s first EPS/Epoxy Pre-Preg surfboard. From Race Cars to Super Yachts, the highest performance components are all constructed using Pre-Preg materials and processes. It’s the pinnacle of composite technology. The implications for surfboards are huge – more accuracy, less waste, perfect reproduction. However the greatest advantage is in performance through two main factors: Flex and Strength to Weight ratio.
Torq TEC - Torq Epoxy Composite offers a wide variety of performance shapes in our advanced vacuum epoxy lay-up. Using a mix of plain weave fibres and Carbon, these boards offer incredible durability for their weight.
X-Lite is a molded Epoxy technology developed specifically for performance boards. This is stronger and more Eco than a traditional PU/Polyester board. This new innovative technology is used exclusively on the Channel Islands surfboards models; the POD MOD and the Chancho.
Torq Epoxy Technology or TET represents a revolution in Epoxy surfboard technology. Built using the latest in EPS/Epoxy materials; the Torq Epoxy Technology combines a lightweight EPS core with Biaxial fibreglass cloth, Epoxy resin and our unique Shield Skin. Also available in TET-CS combining lighter glassing and a Carbon Strip.
Our Soft Deck board uses an additional PE deck skin over a full laminated core to offer a safe first time learning option in this durable easy surfing range.
