The biggest revolution in the 2017 Santa Cruz Surfboard line-up is the introduction of "CDC - Custom Design Carbon". We design and weave carbon strips into the fiberglass fabric which helps to control how the boards "FLEX". CDC provides added rigidity at the center
where the riders bulk weight is carried, but allows flex in the nose and tail for more snap and control. The CDC glass is therefore designed with more concentration of carbon fibers at the center tapering off at the nose and tail which produces "MORE SPEED" and "EASY CONTROL". CDC is available on most models, except Soybeans. CDC is an exclusive design feature being introduced by Santa Cruz - no one else in the market currently uses custom designed fabric like ours. CDC provides a solid clean look with barely visible carbon strips.
