RRD WAVE CULT V7 Wood
The new WAVE CULT V7 is the board that everyone should have, which suits all kind of conditions and allows you to feel covered in any session in both home spot and travel outings. We focused more and more on this goal to provide a tool that can perform the best in both on-shore and side-shore conditions in every wave size.
We have worked on details and introduced dedicated and important innovations to the outline and definitely having an eye-catching shape. The new WAVE CULT V7 has superb planing capabilities and is easy in all transitions but, at the same time, is very powerful in turns to perfectly meet even side and offshore conditions such as those in Cape Town and Ho’okipa.
We are proud to introduce you our six new shapes that make the Wave Cult V7 line up; 68, 74, 82, 92, 104 and 114 lts.
BUILT TOUGH FEEL LIGHT

Our ultimate Wood tecnology has been further improved and we were able to apply a much better construction compared to common Wood tecnologies which typically have focused solely on strength and impact resistance. This type of construction has been applied to our Wave Cult V7 as well as to the Freestyle Wave V4.
The new performance construction is able to combine strength and durability with lightweight by adding specific reinforcements and perfectly combining them underneath the Wood laminate. We have basically obtained a full sandwich board by adding PVC under the heel area togheter with unidirectional and biaxal fibers on the deck and on the bottom of the board. Those layers are combined together and placed very efficiently to reinforce the most stressed parts and leaving a lighter weight in less stressed areas.
The bottom of the board is the most complicated as it is subject to the strongest impacts, specially with wave boards. That’s why we have worked a lot on a construction which is able to prevent bottom cracks.
To improve resistance we have added 2 T-stringer engraved with glass in the EPS and, on top of them, we have placed a high density EPS. The HD EPS is only 5mm thick and is similar to PVC but lighter as its weight is only 48kg/m3. This special foam is the main support of the Wood veneer which is placed on top. Those layers are sofisticated and when combined together create a very solid structure and, at the same time, minimizing the weight of the board.
The Wood outside fully covers those layers like a shell and adds resistance to the board as it is one of the most strongest unidirectional fibers existing in nature. The Wood is still one of the strongest material in the market for building boards.
