Shapers Spine-Tek® replaces traditional timber stringers with a precision engineered composite spine, combining innovation & technology to deliver optimal flex-based performance.

Designed through the principles of elastic potential energy, Spine-Tek® allows the surfboard to flex, load-up on energy & then spring back to its natural rocker curve with additional drive, speed, power and flow.
