Empire Andre Botha PP ISS Bodyboard
Designed by two-time World Champion Andre Botha, the Empire Andre Botha PP ISS Bodyboard features a Kinetic PP core and ISS, or Interchangeable Stringer System.
Botha has proved himself to be one of the most competitive riders in the world. He won back to back world titles when he was just 17 and 18 years old. His board template was built with one thing in mind: pulling in the biggest barrels possible.
This is a feature-packed board, offering an ISS, Kinetic PP core and Surlyn PP slick with mesh.
FROM THE MANUFACTURER
Andre Botha has proved himself to not only be one of the best competitive riders in the world, winning back to back World Titles at ages 17, and 18, but he is also known as one of the heaviest chargers in the world.
His relaxed surfing style paired with his ability to ride the craziest waves in the world has made him into one of the most dynamic riders the sport has ever seen. His template is designed with one thing mind, pulling into the biggest barrels possible.
The ISS Interchangeable Stringer System revolutionizes bodyboarding by giving the rider the freedom to fine tune the flex of their board to better suit the wave and water conditions.
Using patented load and lock technology, ISS stringers are inserted and removed with the turn of a key. The ISS range of stringers utilize the latest in composite construction and manufacturing technology to create a quiver of shafts that covers virtually the full spectrum of a riders flex requirement.
