WSL tour 2016 Rookie of the Year, Caio Ibelli, takes his first batch of custom engineered Varial boards on an exploration mission in Portugal. Caio tested Varial\'s new vacuum bagged Infused Glass technology on his new boards, all shaped by Xanadu and all featuring Varial Foam cores . . . Mission success.
Details on Infused Glass
Varial\'s new patent-pending glassing technology adapts the most advanced composite laminate processes to achieve a perfect, tailored glass job. Infused Glass injects resin into the fiberglass under full vacuum, completely flattening out fibers in the weave and eliminating excess resin to yield uniform and consistent skin thickness. Varial extensively lab tested vibration, flex and dampening properties in order to create any desired combination and tailor performance for conditions, or personal preference. The space race is real, and the materials revolution is live.
