Aloha Surfboards

Black Bean XE

$750

Only 2 pieces in stock!

Short, wide, fast and fun the Aloha Black Bean has a short rail line that fits perfectly into the smallest pocket.
The small curvy outline helps in the weakest of beach breaks by decreasing drag and increasing speed which is the key to this little pocket rocket.
The medium to low rail helps to draw out turns and control speed which the Black Bean has in spades.
The flat entry rocker enables instant acceleration when combined with a single to double concave
allowing full control at speed, the subtle diamond tail provides multiple pivot points for turning in the most critical sections of dumpy little shore breaks.
For experienced surfers ride this little whip 1 or 2 litres in volume above your standard short board or for the intermediate surfers go up 6 to 8 litres and take full advantage of the paddle power and stability.

Aloha Surfboard Construction Technology

- XEPS Boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a high-grade timber stringer, each board is hand laminated using Epoxy Resign and High Grade Fibreglass providing a lighter, stronger board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is very light and strong. EPS foam has more buoyancy and floatation increasing paddling speed and manoeuvrability.
Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester as epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs,  decreasing the amount of harmful chemicals released into the environment.

- FLAX FIBRE cloth is an engineered reinforcement fabric made from the bast of the flax seed plant.  While flax fibre is one of the oldest cultivated fibres for textiles, it is only recently that its use as a fibreglass substitute has been achieved.  Incorporating flax fibre cloth in the lamination reduces the use of regular glass by 1/3rd and adds a great earthy look and more importantly helps lower our carbon footprint.
SR GreenPoxy 56 is an epoxy resin which has up to 56% of its molecular structure coming from plant origin. This percentage is function of the carbon origin contained in the epoxy molecule.The final rate of the mix bio-based carbon content will depend on the hardener choice. The manufacture of EPS foam does not involve the use of toxic isocyantes used in the production of regular surfboard blanks. Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is light weight and has fantastic shock absorbing properties, making it ideal for surfboards. EPS foam has more buoyancy and flotation increasing paddling speed and maneuverability.
Aloha has teamed up with the first, independent 3rd party consumer-facing “eco-label” for boards, the ECOBOARD Project is focused on reducing  carbon footprints, increasing the use (and reuse) of renewable, recycled and up-cycled inputs, and reducing toxicity within the surfboard manufacturing process.

- XF Boards are constructed using a 36gram EPS core with a high-grade timber stringer, each board is hand laminated using Epoxy Resign and Biaxial Fibreglass on the deck providing a lighter, stronger board that feels fast and responsive under your feet increasing performance in a wide variety of conditions!
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam is very light and strong. EPS foam has more buoyancy and floatation increasing paddling speed and manoeuvrability.
Biaxial Fibre Glass has half its fibres aligned along the length of the cloth (0 degrees) and half across the cloth (90 degrees) creating a controlled flex pattern.
Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester as epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs,  decreasing the amount of harmful chemicals released into the environment.

- ECOSKIN Technology is a small step toward producing surfboards that are manufactured with more Earth friendly ethics.
Ecoskin surfboards are by no means sustainable but utilising less toxic materials during production we are taking steps to decrease our carbon footprint.
Paulownia is one of the fastest growing trees in the world, capable of growth rates of well over seven feet per year! Paulownia timber is perfectly suited as a sustainable alternative in surfboard production due to its lightweight and proportionately natural strength characteristics.
Some species of plantation Paulownia can be harvested for saw timber in as little as five years.
Once Paulownia trees are harvested, they regenerate from their existing root systems, earning them the name of the “Phoenix tree”.
