DESIGN
VISION

The brand new Escape is our ultra versatile, high-performance directional board with an extremely durable built quality. It is made for strapless freestyle riders that like to spice things up with some wave action. The Escape’s noseless design with short rails results in high agility and dynamic riding characteristics, perfect for rotations and tight cutbacks.
Our aim, translating the original design of the Escape to a more durable, robust construction, preserving proven performance features. We developed an innovative composite vacuum sandwich construction (CVC) that includes a Bamboo top deck and a full carbon layer on the bottom. This combination is very light, yet insanely sturdy. Even when ridden extensively, the Escape will last for many years.

  • Low Rocker
  • Provides early planing and speed in fast sections and flats
  • Perfect for small waves of all types and strapless freestyle

The low rocker line of the Escape guarantees early planing in all sections even in small surf and light wind.

  • Wide Squash Tail with Small Wingers
  • Responsive feel for sharp and tight turns
  • Easy to pop and airborne characteristics

The wide squash tail provides a skatie feel with easy release for popping airs and sharp turns.

  • Thin Rail Profile
  • Great rail control in bottom and top turns
  • Perfect grip even at take offs and landings in choppy water

The low buoyancy of the thin rails enhances the control in turns and when getting airborne. The rails cut through choppy water and help with sketchy landings

  • Single Concave with Channels
  • Channels on nose and tail provide more waterflow to generate drive and speed
  • The shape enhances the responsiveness and adds grip for technical tricks

The innovative channel design balances grip and speed, making the board perfect for the most technical freestyle manouvers.
