“The Black dot is a super versatile small wave performance board. It is fast, easy to surf, paddles well and can be ridden with a performance approach in a huge range of conditions. It has a single through to double concave with a whisker of vee of the rear fin, making it fast off the mark and loose in the pocket and can be pushed hard off the corners of the swallow tail through turns. The relaxed entry rocker aids in paddling and drive with the more generous tail rocker allowing fast, sharp turns and carves.The outline and foam distribution is balanced and gives the appearance of a performance swallow tail shortboard that has been compressed ,widened and flattened slightly. Ride one at your normal volume, or a tiny bit over and feel the benefits to your surfing this little gem provides.

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.
