The 10’6’’ MANAWA which benefits from the AIR SHIELD COMPOSITE technology is built around a light core made of EPS foam injected into a specific mold carved to its own shape.
This core is then laminated with fiberglass and epoxy resin into another mold and wrapped inside a protective shield skin made of a high quality topsheet layer. A carbon reinforcement patch has been added in the standing area to strengthen the deck while keeping weight to a minimum.
Thanks to its production technology the 10’6’’ MANAWA A.S.C. is really light, responsive and extremely durable. Its new construction adds to the well known qualities of the MANAWA shapes to make this board stable, versatile and accessible to anyone!
The AIR SHIELD COMPOSITE stand up paddles are constructed around a light weight injected EPS core molded to our original shape.
