Description Product Details Why This Product Rocks?
 

Balsa Wood Single Fin

The classic shape of the 60´s combined with modern lines gives this wooden «Singlefin» a very loose surf feeling, together with control and speed, achieved by the single fin and the sharp edge on the tail.  

Surfing on the «70´s Singlefin» is a clean, more glide orientated surfing.

The «70´s Singlefin» performs as well in medium sized and powerless waves as it does in fast and hollow waves. 

Fast edge changes are made possible by the V in the bottom, which also aids improved manoeuvrability.

A hardwood stringer gives the board extraordinary stability. 

Nose and tail are also reinforced with hardwood.

The ideal wave height for this board is 0.7 to 2 meters.

The Kun_tiqi «Singlefin» comes with a US- fin box. The right fin for you can be ordered on demand with the board.

Dimensions: 6'6" x 19 1/5 x 2 5/8

Why Balsa?

balsa tree

The core of our surfboards, and therefore their main element, is Balsa wood (Ocroma Pyramidale). 

Balsa has been  used as a transport float in South America 1000 years before the bad ass Inka Empire

This plant is one of the fastest growing species, reaching a height of up to 10 meter and a diameter of 20-25 cm within 3-4 years.

The Balsa wood we use comes from a family farm, situated in the coastal region of Ecuador. 

The head of the farm and family is Don Zandoval. 

The Balsa trees are planted in a sustainable mixed cultivation program together with bananas, yuca, and beans.

"Balsa wood is a fast growing, sustainable and recyclable raw material, producing no toxic substances. Therefore it can safely be said, that the use of Balsa is a sustainable method of producing surfboard blanks."

~ Kuntiqui Founder

Balsa Production

Since our balsa wood surfboards are exclusively handmade, the production process requires approximately six times as long as it takes to produce a conventional foam board.

The process begins with the sowing of the balsa seeds in Don Zandoval´s greenhouse and three months later continues with the planting between bananas, yucca and beans. 

It takes 3-4 years before the trees have grown to the sufficient height for harvesting. 

After they have been sliced into blocks they are transported by eco donkey. In the local climate of Ecuador the wooden blocks dry in about 2-3 months.
