Thanks for asking.
Yes, we are making a board for @clemmmo and we plan to get demos all over Aus.
We were on a production break but are again back to
sanding foam.
The waveparks coming are interested in our boards for the obvious reasons. And the parks in Aus will soon be another place to demo these boards. Occy bought 3 Of these Cush boards and he has been involved in some Aus wavepark projects — so Keep an eye on the parks Occy is involved in to see when they get them for demo.

Always stoked when people want to try them. We will do what we can. Usually helps if a demo rider pays the shipping of the board —but gets to keep it a month or so. Especially going to Aus.

Cool idea

I can see a reduction in my collection of surfing bruises.

Do you need a rash vest to retain nipples?

No rash. The grip was made in Hawaii for warm water and bare chests.
No issues with delam. No issues with grip coming of in excessive heat.
Cush skin is like an insulator for the epoxy and foam “inside” the board.

Getting close to offering a small pocket board with Cush skin and hybrid memory foam rails.
Didnt see you join the mail list TomW?

The first few will definitely go fast so we will reveal it to our email subscribers before any others.

Full production of them wont be till around May

Really good topic! Most of the inventions for the sport and not only based on or partially taken from representatives of animals, plants, insects and others. People take the best of what evolution has done and simply adapt for themselves. It's fine :)
