For the guy who knows how to surf, prefers a modern Pro-Formance rocker, but needs a bit of help in the crowded line ups and sloppy surf. Flatter, faster (slightly fatter) and funner. You won't have a bummer... Winter, Spring, Fall or Summer By popular demand! When developing the UBER DRIVER, we overlooked the 'Domesticated and distinguished Gentlemen'...aka bigger boys...My bad! Not anymore.
The UBER-XL is just as the name says: A scaled up version of the recently re-vamped UBER DRIVER-19. The UBER DRIVER-XL is designed for bigger or Domesticated surfers, as well as intermediate surfers looking for a stepping stone to a more performance type of surfboard.
The rocker, outline and bottom curves are performance minded, and directly off the standard UBER DRIVER (which in turn came from the Sub-Driver). We then enlarged the dimensions and carried the thickness fow forward. The deck has been adjusted to a fatter, more stable platform, with a low apex tapered rail, that hides the volume, and still permeates the water in turns.

Diamond Series Carbon Wrap
CARBON WRAP is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the need for a standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-defines the way a surfboard's flex patterns are created and controlled. Ultra-light Aero Blank EPS cores are 'wrapped' with strategically positioned diamond series carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins.
The all new Diamond edition Carbon Wrap has seen decrease in Carbon Fibre strands visible through the tape, giving it minimal look. This minimal look has not compromised strength as the missing carbon has been replaced with an extra strong XS glass that has very strong tensile strength along with much improved flex characteristics.
The updated reinforcing element allows for more overall flex resulting in better performance. Combined with the new Flex2Volume program, Diamond Edition Carbon Wrap will have an enhanced energy that can be tailored to volume in each board. Until now, flex patterns in surfboards have had a 'one flex fits all' approach. All boards have been made with one flex strength, regardless of the size of the board, or the rider. With the advent of Flex2Volume, we are now able to offer different flex patterns that correspond to the volume of the board, vastly increasing performance. Smaller boards will feature a more forgiving flex pattern and larger boards will have more reinforced carbon on the deck to suit the larger rider.
