SCORE RIP CURL SUNSCREEN FOR $15 WHEN YOU SPEND $100
TORQ TEC BIG BOY 23 - WHITE - 6'6"
This is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The dark horse, charlatan, imposter. You think you’re looking at a funboard? Think again. This is a funboard on steroids. This is Jekyll and Hyde.
On paper it’s a funboard and if you’re looking to catch green waves and do some turns, the width, volume and length means this board will do it all day long – it’s perfect for you. But in the hands of a seasoned surfer it’ll come alive. Think of it as a shortboard with a little extra width in the nose but all the performance features to surf hard and fast. One customer genuinely told us “I was smiling so much I got sunburnt teeth!”.
For any big guy rippers out there, longboarders wanting a shorter board or intermediates, look no further.

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.
