the Cabrinha ace has wide outline and broad tips have their roots in freestyle, but Cabrinha have mellowed out what would ordinarily be quite technical ride characteristics to become more comfortable for freeride. Along with the wide tips that provide lots of rail grip, there’s moderate channelling in the base that aid grip and speed control. When added in the right areas on the bottom of a board, channels make a big difference. The Ace’s channels soften the ride and provide good levels of flat grip on landings. The Ace also releases from the water really well without feeling sticky.
