BlkBox Surf, an American brand and manufacturer of Stand-Up-Paddle (SUP) boards, is using TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fabrics to achieve weight savings and mechanical performance benefits.

“TeXtreme offers all the best properties of unidirectional carbon in a woven fabric that creates a lighter, stronger surfboard or paddleboard. Our athletes have won race series championships the past three years in a row on our standup paddleboards made with TeXtreme” says Matt Campbell, Owner and Shaper, BlkBox Surf & Owner, C3D Industries & Formulator of Resin-X.

Oxeon explains that the BlkBox SUP boards are the latest TeXtreme surf board application hitting the market after earlier successes by North Kiteboarding, Fanatic Windsurfing and Hydroflex surfboards. It says TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fibre reinforcements are used in applications and products requiring weight savings, improved strength and stiffness and, in general, customers using TeXtreme achieves weight savings of about 20-30% on the finished composite parts, compared to when using conventional carbon fiber reinforcements.
