The interchangeable tail design concept encourages users to explore performance in an intuitive way, by swapping the tails and comparing the surf-style variations.
The Tail Connect System (TCS)
The prototype construction was adapted using highly-detailed 3d models and CNC machine processes.
3D Model Overview
This project challenges the technological conservatism of the surfboard market scenario, proposing a product with superior value to the casual surfer.
Shaper & User friendly
The TCS is designed to be compatible with the current surfboard industry and can be applied to any custom surfboard design. A solution not only for the users, but also compatible with the shaper's traditional processes.
