New Axis boards look nice and light.

Will the Armstrong Foil setup work with the Carbon.co Foilboards?

If so, i ride strapless, and, interested in the Being 90. Do you ship to US?

Kind Regards

I've recently been using the new Axis Tray in the mid sized 110cm version. Very light but well built, and even though it's 15cm smaller than my previous board it just bounces back on touchdowns. Fantastic board with the Moses 633 and has a well positioned track and footstrap inserts. Very reasonably priced for a lightweight carbon board.

I've known Adrian Roper for many years and his skill at designing and building high performance composite boards which stand up to every day use, makes him one of the best in the industry. I also sell the Axis foil range which Adrian has also beautifully engineered, and they perform as strong as they look.
Definitely worth a demo if you're looking for new gear.

I wondered where Adrian Roper went to. These boards look great.

Can you answer some questions?

So it looks like the white is a deck pad? And I see some bumps on the tail area but no tail kicker?

Do the tracks go all the way through the board?

The white top is all deck pad with no tail kicker.
The board seems to be as thin as you could make it with vertical height of the twin mast tracks. So I would say that the tracks are glassed to the top deck and bottom skin of the board making it a very strong rigid construction.

Looks like it, you can see them through the deck in the pic. Those boards look great.

So do the mast tracks actually poke up above the deck? Is that what the bumps are?

I found a picture of my short wave tray circa 2004. The tray is back!
They are 20mm thick of solid PVC foam.

I missed that is said 20mm. Thanks.
I have been looking for low depth boxes to match 20mm and it seems axis uses something thicker than 20mm as can be seen on the deck. Probably using 1in/25mm by the look of the bump.
