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.
Hyperlite is proud to announce the launch of our new wake surf line featuring Varial foam and Infused Glass. After years of development we have partnered with the most advanced surf board manufacturer in the industry to bring the finest in wake surf boards. These new shapes are hand made in Ventura California using exclusive aerospace grade materials, creating the most advanced ride the industry has seen.

Tim Carrolls team riders Torrey Meister and Mikey Bruneau have put Varial Foam through the paces on the North Shore and beyond. Here, Carroll talks about the feedback and his own experience using Varial Foam in his North Shore shaping bay.
“Here & Home” is a new series focusing on the individual lives of our surfers. The piece takes an in-depth look at how they spend their time at home and on the road. Here, we feature Torrey Meister. Torrey owes everything to the Big Island of Hawaii, surfing variable conditions over shallow, sharp reefs. It developed his surfing into what we see today.
Body Glove is proud to present Lei Days with Tatiana Weston-Webb. Shot entirely on location in Maui following her equal 5th finish in the 2015 Target Maui Pro, this surreal piece symbolizes Tati winding down from a stellar rookie season on the WSL. As the youngest competitor on the Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour, Tati began the year as the 16th seed and put the world on notice as she steadily marched her way to an impressive 7th place finish. Although the offseason is short lived with, the time off is well deserved, and Lei Days aims to celebrate the one of a kind beauty and athleticism that is Tatiana Weston-Webb.
Shane Dorian has been pushing the limits of big wave paddle surfing and now has focused on improving his equipment to take it to another next level entirely. These clips show Shane on his custom engineered 9\'6\" stringerless Varial Foam gun shaped by John Carper. The stronger, faster and more responsive material may have helped Shane make critical drops, barrels and surf heads above the rest of the pack. Or maybe he\'s just a beast getting toying with the heaviest waves on the planet.
