Have you heard of Bounce SUP?… Well if not then listen up!
James, Ty and the crew talked with us about their new board design incorporating a Hollow Thermal Composite Technology or H-TCT. We asked Ty, Why he came to Bounce after working for some of the top board company in the industry? and he replied:
“Bounce made a board for Surftech when I was there as a sales manager called the B-1 that was originally a 10’6″ and it was the most durable thing that we had ever seen. There are roto-molded products out there and a bunch of other things but this is something that’s patented and I really truly believe in, This is something completely different that is really revolutionized board construction. Its made in the USA and is really a no brainer for me.”
James goes onto say that,
“It’s really exciting because Bounce has a technology that no one else has. You go around in this industry and there’s many marketing stories that they try to differentiate like shapes, designs, patterns, deck pads and whatever but for board technologies this is a truly unique composite not only in the Stand-Up Paddleboard industry but with composites in general. What’s different is that we’re replacing the epoxy resin with a thermo plastic resin, in this case polypropylene. It gives us the best of both worlds. We have a true composite board, woven fiberglass with extra material in the areas you need more strength but with that different resin it elongates When you hit a resin board it cracks. When you hit our board the resin expands and allows the fiberglass fibers to do what their truly supposed to do.
What type of paddling does the Bounce SUP boards fall in?
“We’re not the race guys, We’re not the Surf guys. Those markets are extremely saturated but the Bounce SUP board are great for the rental markets, fleet markets, the everyday household board, the fun board or the board you dont mind your kids touching. We believe we have a unique solution that does an amazing job but dont just talk to me get out there and talk to one of our customers.” – James
You said you guys are based out of the USA?
“Manufactured 100% in Oceanside California, so we build every single board by hand that has ever touched the water.” -James
Erin liked this board so much she is now the proud owner of her very own Super Cruiser Touring model with the H-TCT technology.
