8’0 Torq M2 TEC – FCS II
“…LIGHTWEIGHT, MID-LENGTH PERFORMANCE”
Performance minimals are some of the funnest, most versatile boards you can own. Great for first waves, perfect for gliding small clean waves and with the paddle and pick up for larger or junkier surf.
Usually a performance minimal comes at a cost; the size of the board means to make it lightweight they are inherently weak and lose their responsive feel quickly or simply break. With the Torq TEC construction you get a lightweight board with all the strength of a much heavier one and much more responsivity.
Our combination of carbon strips on the top and bottom make these boards super lively and surf a lot shorter than their length.
About the fin setup
The M2 comes with 5 fin boxes for a Quad or Thruster setup, except for the 6’6” because this comes with 4 fin boxes and a longboard fin box in the middle. This gives the option to ride the 6’6’’ as a Quad, a Thruster and as a Single Fin. The centre fin box is best suited for ROAM longboard fins, FCS screw and plate longboard fins and Futures longboard fins.
|6’6 x 21” x 2 1/2″||38.9 ltr|
|7’0 x 21″ x 2 5/8”||43.9 ltr|
|7’6 x 21 1/2″ x 2 3/4″||50.0 ltr|
|8’0 x 22” x 2 7/8”||55.7 ltr|
The Torq TEC lay-up offers incredible durability with an improved flex pattern. The deck and rail lay-up is a 6oz and 4oz layer which allows the board much greater freedom of twist and flex. A 6oz deck patch ensures the same level of impact resistance, while the addition of a carbon filament stringer adds incredible longitudinal strength and response.
For mid-lengths and longboards the lay-up features a carbon stringer to the deck and bottom for a new level of torsional strength, plus 2 T-stringers on the longboards for additional responsive stiffness.
