MORE POWER, MORE CRITICAL TURNS.
The standard shortboard pro-models have a tendency to be too rockered and lack buoyancy; they are designed for very specific surfing in very specific waves.
For the original Comp we developed a board that bucked the trend by offering a true shortboard that performs in a much wider range of conditions, aboard that that generates speed with ease, fast acceleration and quick rail to rail transitions.
The Comp2 is continues this progression. With increased volume in the larger sizes we’ve improved the speed generation though floatation and planing speed. To make use of the extra speed generation we adjusted the rocker for easier direction changes – ie. more power, more critical

TEC - TORQ EPOXY COMPOSITE
Torq Epoxy Composite offers performance shapes in our state-of-the-art epoxy layup. These boards have the best balance of Lightweight versus Durability. Using our own unique lamination process, we are able to use a very strong fiberglass lay-up of 6oz and 4oz combined in 3 layered deck and 2 layered base (with a 4 layered rail lap) with a high density EPS foam, but still achieve a board weight that matches a lightweight fiberglass lay-up.
The result is light but very strong board, with good flex characteristics and as with all torq's, excellent value for money.
The TEC shortboards have 2 full layers of fiber over the deck and bottom. On the deck we use an extra 6oz deck patch with gives triple layer ding resistance, but doesn't resist the flex along the rail. The addition of a carbon filament stringer and UD carbon twin strips on the base makes these super springy and responsive.
