Caio Ibelli goes full ignition in this edit, blasting through Australia's east and west coasts on his Varial Foam boards shaped by Xanadu. Caio has done extensive R&D on his Varial equipment, exploring different flex patterns, ideal weight ratios and strength properties of Varial Foam + Infused Glass - both technologies adapted from the aerospace world. By the looks of things it seems to be working quite well.
Big wave surfer and living legend Shane Dorian features in the sixth episode of Board Tales and takes us through some of his most iconic boards, including his first board ever. He walks us through old tow boards, Kelly Slater designed boards, his arsenal of Jaws boards that he keeps at friend Ian Walsh's house and introduces us to his friend and shaper, John Carper. This episode is an incredible behind the scenes look at the career of one of surfing's most talented and diverse professionals ever.
