The NuSkool has a straighter outline in the middle and is more curved in the tips making it smooth and stable, instantly comfortable, and a blast to use. The bottom shaping is less complicated then some of our more aggressive freestyle models but still provides a good grip. In addition, the new rocker line allows the board to slide over the water which, with coupled with the bottom shape, reduces the drag of the board making it faster, provides it with more upwind ability, and makes for some smooth, solid landings. The outline, flex, and bottom shape allow this board to butter through chop and still deliver when it is pushed to the next level.
This board has been highly revered by the younger riders and female riders because it is very light and has the correct amount of pop that lighter riders need to achieve their goals. Because the NuSkool is so immensely comfortable, the rider can push forward into new territories never explored. Whether you are into new school or old school riding, the 2014 Axis NuSkool will teach you the confidence and control that you need for unparalleled progression!
The 2013 AXIS NuSkool has a durable Coax PBT foil top and bottom sheet, which is digitally sublimated. This gives a finish that is hard to scratch, with bright colors, which will keep its good looks for a longtime.
The rails are made from colored PU material. The PU material is very tough and is a special formula that bonds very well to epoxy.
The core is strip planked Paulownia wood core. Axis has been using Paulownia for years because it is light and strong but also because it is a very fast growing timber and one of the most sustainable timbers that you could have for a core.
The laminate is Biaxial fiberglass with Uni carbon reinforcing. The combination of the glass and carbon provides a very durable board with great controlled flex for excellent pop.
The AXIS NuSkool features Uni Carbon on both the top and bottom of the board. This way you get the maximum effect from the carbon, enhancing the board's performance. The boards have a dedicated heel side edge with the Uni Carbon indicated by the inserts.
