Stringerless Board

  • Has anyone ever rode a stringerless board?  I am ordering a few boards from a shaper I have frequented over the years and he thinks a stringerless he has been toying with is worth a try. 


    Does anyone have experience with boards without Stringers?


    Given that I am only 145lbs I am guessing there wont be too much flex.


    Any advice/thoughts would be appreciated..

  • Totally stringerless, or some kind of parabolic wrap (Think Coils)?


    Most of my boards now are stringerless, but they provide some kind of rigidity on the rails.  The flex characteristics feel more lively for me.

  • My last few small wave boards have been stringerless. Totally recommend. Lighter, more playful and springy
