Since 2012 Torq have developed a name for industry leading Epoxy technology, offering performance and durability for the premium recreational surfer. By using optimised techniques widely used in composite technologies the TEC range takes that one step further; creating a board with an incredible strength to weight ratio and torsional flex properties. The Torq Epoxy Composite uses a 3 x 6oz lay-up and carbon fibre tail reinforcement on the deck for maximum strength. The bottom features a carbon torsion strip to control flex and give a responsive spring from turns.
A sled for any waves up to 4ft. Whether you are a Longboarder looking for a step down or a shortboarder looking for some extra volume for the smallest days, this board will make you stoked for even the weakest surf.
The shape is short and wide providing loads of planing area and with around 30% more volume than the Thruster, loads of float too. The rocker is flat for maximum speed and the foil carries out to the rail so you can power through turns without bogging the rail.
With 5 Futures fin boxes, the Summer 5 can be ridden as Quad or Thruster.

This is a true one board quiver. Up front you have a ‘fish’ like nose – wide through the 12” mark with an easy entry rocker and single concave. From the mid point back, the template narrows in a long curve into a rounded pin tail with a little more rocker under the back foot and a double concave to vee behind the fins.
This combination makes a board that paddles well and catches waves like a fish but also performs in more critical waves. Under your front foot the board is fast and accelerates quickly, with speed to burn. As you transfer your weight to your back foot the combination of the round pin and double concave makes the board sharp and responsive, easily capable of holding a high line in the barrel or deep gouging carves.

This is a funboard on steroids! For this concept we’ve used the overall plan shape of a minimal/funboard and boosted the width and volume along the length and foil. The result is a manageable, easy turning length with the paddle and float of a much larger board.
For improving surfers, this offers stability, paddle power and wave catching ability. For heavier surfers you’ll find the float you need in a much shorter length. The single to double concave means you can still put this board on a rail.

LIGHTWEIGHT, MID-LENGTH PERFORMANCE
Performance minimal’s are one of the funnest, most versatile boards you can own. And the Torq Tec M2 Xl is great for first waves, perfect for gliding small clean waves and with the paddle and pick up for larger or junkier surf.
Usually a performance minimal comes at a cost; the size of the board means to make it lightweight they are inherently weak and lose their responsive feel quickly or simply break. With the Torq TEC construction you get a lightweight board with all the strength of a much heavier one and much more responsivity.
Our combination of carbon strips on the top and bottom make these boards super lively and surf a lot shorter than their length.
The Torq TEC mid-lengths feature carbon stringer to the deck and bottom for a new level of torsional strength. Combined with 6+6+4oz deck and 6+4oz base, these boards are incredibly strong, light and responsive.$989.00
The M2 has all the elements of a performance longboard in a much more compact package.
The center of the board is fairly straight and flat – this is the paddle and trim area, the functional section. At the front there’s a wide longboard nose with a single concave underneath – perfect for nose rides. From the mid-point back the template narrows into a round tail with a double concave vee underneath making this mini malibu super maneuverable off the tail.
A true Mini Malibu for all surfers in waves of 1ft to double overhead. The 4/3 set-up allows ultimate fin versatility.

A performance longboard that will suit waves of any kind.
Through the middle is a straight template and flatter rocker. Effortless paddling and glide for early wave catching and trim. Up at the front is a wide longboard nose with a single concave underneath, a soft rail and medium entry rocker. It’s a combination made for solid, stable nose rides in addition to easy carving.
In the back 3rd, the template narrows into a pulled in round tail with a double concave vee in the bottom and a medium tail flip. Designed for maneuverability, this tail allows the board to come hard off the bottom into the lip or carve a long arc back into the pocket.
An allround performance longboard in cutting edge technology.

The Torq Tec Horseshoe longboard will be your lucky charm when it comes to catching waves. It’s classic longboard shape with low-rocker, blended concave nose, tail and nose kick, 50/50 rails, and thruster fin box setup creates a board that is easy to glide and noseride. Square tail, this board performs well in small to medium sized waves and at all types of surf breaks.
Torq TEC, Torq Epoxy Composite offers our user friendly performance shapes in our most advanced epoxy lay-up to date. Using a mix of plain weave fibres and Carbon, these boards offer the best strength to weight ratio on the market. For mid-lengths and longboards the lay-up features a carbon stringer to the deck and bottom for a new level of torsional strength, plus 2 T-stringers on the longboards for additional responsive stiffness.$1,129.00
ALL THE TRICKS IN THE BOX
Modern longboarding has a variety of skill and style that is hard to compare in any other sport. Depending on the surfer, or the wave, or the board, it can be a dance or a martial art. It can be light footed poise or powerful drive, straight line trim or vertical snaps, nose rides or carves. A true modern high performance longboard has to be capable of all of these things.
The Torq Don is such a design – stable on the nose, straight and fast through the middle and lively in the tail. But the added advantage of the Torq TEC construction; lightweight, strong and super responsive makes the wide repertoire of moves easier and more dynamic.
For lengths of 8'6 and over we have introduced a T-stringer and carbon stringer to the deck and bottom for a new level of torsional strength. The torq longboard technology is incredibly strong, light and responsive.
With 3 layers of glass on the deck and 2 layers on the base, these are super strong, light and feel fast under your feet.$1,299.00
