FUNKSHEN: The EAST/WEST Collaboration
Funkshen founder/shaper Dave ‘Tully’ Tulloch is proud to announce his collaboration on the 2012/13 Funkshen Bodyboard range with fellow Australian master craftsman/shaper, Glen ‘Ed’ Edwards.
The project is titled “The EAST/WEST Collaboration”, referring to the location of each of the shapers, Tully being based in Perth, Western Australia, and Ed based on the Gold Coast on the East Coast of Australia. These two prominent and respected shapers are highly experienced in producing high performance meticulously crafted custom bodyboards, and this knowledge has served as the basis for the functional craft you are looking at right now. Funkshen – Meticulously Crafted Bodyboards.
Funkshen extensively researches the different pp cores on the market and uses premium polypropylene core (PP). Our Superlite polypro core is strong, light, very durable and above all not too stiff. The harder you push this core the harder it springs back and is the choice of most professional bodyboarders. PREMIUM POLYPROPOLYNE 1.9LB DENISTY FOAM. 100% Waterproof. The premium option for those who like a strong, light-weight, and fast board or a board that performs exceptionally well in warmer climates.
Decks and Rails
We use the most comfortable deck skins available whilst not sacrificing on stiffness and durability. Funkshen uses PE 8lb Tuffcell deck skins and for pp core it has a black film for bonding to PP core. We also use Polyethylene 8lb rails as this adds uniformity whilst creating a stronger rail which gives your board life, stiffness and performance. A very comfortable material!
To add to the durability and performance of Funkshen bodyboards we use 4mm high density x-link bodyguards. We use them on all bodyboard noses and tails to protect them from heavy abuse these 2 areas receive whilst surfing.
When only the best will do! We use the highest grade mirror finished Surlyn slicks. The proven industry standard Surlyn still provides the best amount of stiffness and flex to your bodyboard to provide you with plenty of projection.
Projection, projection! The new Funkshen Hypermesh when combined with any of our cores gives your board that extra boost you’ve been searching for. Hypermesh adds to the overall nose to tail strength of your bodyboard.
