The evolution of strapless riding is hitting all new highs.  The Big Air resurgence in kiting has paved a way for a new generation of strapless riding.  Riders are pushing the boundaries and throwing moves that not only challenge what was thought possible on surfboards, but also that seems to defy the laws of physics.

The Method is the board for this new generation and beyond.  

The square outline and fast rocker line help keep on track and ready for the next trick.  The wide tail and tail channel help when loading up ready for take off.   With progressive volume distribution through out the board, you can touch down with ease and get ready for the next wave or aerial trick.

    Key Features

    AERIAL TRICKERY

    Symmetrical tip and tail shape and centre bottom channels give excellent pop off the water and control while in the air. Whether you opt for technical spins or big strapless airs, the X:breed sticks to your feet like no other.

    WIDE TAIL

    The unique shape and outline of the Method tail provides early getup and go with increased speed and edge holding ability when riding. This helps increase the ‘pop’ when going for strapless airs.

    FLOW CHANNEL

    The central flow channel which starts at the mid point of the bottom of the board and increases in definition towards the tail, helps with grip as well as lowering the rocker line in the tail of the board to help in early planing and speed.

    ISO FLEX CONSTRUCTION

    Inspired by nature from the oceanic Isopoda family, strategically placed materials, fused within a lightweight fiberglass sandwich construction, allow the board to flex during riding and turns, but still remain durable for the rigors that kiting imposes.

    DAKINE DECK PAD

    Made from Dakine Friendly Foam biodegradable EVA, the full deck traction pad has been designed purely with foiling in mind. Low Profile corduroy grooving provides the perfect blend of comfort and traction and the cutouts have been placed in the locations where extra grip is needed.

    LOOSE THE STRAPS

    A dedicated strapless board, the Method calls for riders to experience and explore the endless performance attributes of the board through various foot placements.
