PU & PE boards
PU as a construction refers to a board built from a Polyurethane blank with Polyester resin, whilst PE refers to a Polyurethane Blank with Epoxy resin.
These have long been the standard for most brands, and is the most widely and affordable option still out there. Due to the core’s density, a PU Magnet will sit a little lower in the water than a Protech or Elements Funboard. But this helps to keep your rail under, giving you a nice “knifey” feel when slicing through the waves face.
Being a touch heavier also helps them to handle choppy conditions better and are less prone to being bounced around. Sitting lower in the water also has its benefits to barrel riding, providing more hold in hollow waves.
Supplied with a single fin
Adding to the vintage character is the single fin setup, although the PU Magnet has a very complete fin cluster, allowing you to ride quad, thruster and any other combination you would like to try out. Out of the box however, the PU Magnet comes with a standard 8″ fin.
