What is more it has even the uv protection in order to create a protective barrier over a drop stitch core.
DURBALE DROP STITCH CONSTRUCTION
Thanks to drop stitch construction, thousands of polyester threads connecting the top and the bottom layers, create much more stronger link which can withstand higher pressures than traditionally created boards. In this process an extremely durable and rock-hard rigid inflatable board is created. With all this modern technology it still offers a ride very similar to a regular hard boards.
