VS BODYBOARDS Jared Houston Flex PE Core
The FLEX Model was created and introduced in the 2016/17 season. Our idea for this model was to create a board which gave riders a plastic and ergonomic feel
when riden, but which also could be used as an elite performance craft.
Extensive testing gave us a board which was received with open arms by the bodyboarding community.
The FLEX features two EXT Stringers in a Sealed Air 2.4 PCF Ethaform PE Core, thermo-fused between a premium grade Surlyn bottom slick skin and 8lb NXL PE decking.
The Houston Flex PE Core is the perfect cold/cool water performance board. This is for riders after a bit more flex whilst still offering all the features to surf up to the elite level.
VS have used Jared's dynamic template to add more maneurability & responsiveness to the system.
Jared is without doubt a freak of nature. He has claimed a world title, admired by his peers and marvelled by those lucky enough to share a session in the salt with him.
His trademark is explosive surfing, especially when he takes to the air.
