Semente Surfboard - Swiss Alps Series - "Bondo" 5'7" - (Rental)Regular price SFr. 35.00 Save SFr. -35.00
The Bondo is a high-performance, small-wave surfboard originally designed as a hole-filler (as it's called) for muddy contest waves. Surprisingly, the team riders found it amazing when the conditions were a bit more demanding or in waves with a bit more pressure.
The key to the Bondo's success is the balance of the model. Strength, rocker and concave are almost exactly 2' from the nose or 2' from the tail, providing consistent speed and quick release during critical maneuvers. The shape of the face is fuller throughout with a fuller nose than the average shortboard, the tail is pulled in more for tighter arcs when carving.
This board carries buoyancy both under the chest and under the rear foot, another key to success. Great summer board or competition board for intermediate to advanced surfers.
Most of the team riders ride this board 2" shorter, 1/4" - 3/8" wider, and 1/8" thicker than their regular board.
Our Swiss Alps series was specially developed for wave systems like Wavegarden together with shaper Nick Uricchio and our Alaia team rider Gabriel Tamaki. A little more thickness in the boards helps you to have enough buoyancy in fresh water or to leave the line up behind you in a paddle battle in the sea. Reinforced plugs and stronger glazing round off the Alpen upgrade and offer you many years of fun with every wave.
