With founder, Mike Stewart.

Since I started Science Bodyboards my elite team of riders and I have been developing models as we successfully rode them. We call this process “Real Time Innovation” or RTI, offering for sale the very boards that are working for us in the water. Starting off with the Zero model (which was a replica of the board I won my 11th Pipe Title on), all the way up to the Science XI model. After years of testing these boards and 1000′s of different combinations of shapes and materials, we have now arrived at the three best performing shapes for the three principal approaches to bodyboarding.

“Pocket” surfing, “Launch”ing for air moves, and “Style” for mixing it up. We call this the Template Series and it’s your key to an entire new realm of performance. Ride deeper, Fly higher and Carve harder then you ever knew possible.

The Boards.

*All board prices are quoted in Australian Dollars ($AU) *Board Prices may vary depending on the store.

"The Science Pocket template suits my style of riding perfectly, as it gives the stability I need in critical parts of the wave, but also the speed to get as much air as I can."

 – Tanner McDaniel on the Science Pocket LTD

The Pocket.

The Pocket (control): Optimise performance where the energy converges, “in the pocket of the wave.”

This highly maneuverable yet super controllable shape, allows optimal performance in the critical energy zone or the “pocket” of the wave.

Accelerate at will, the pocket smoothly transitions from rail to rail and effortlessly links moves together.

This is your board for hitting sections tight to the pocket. Easily launch out of the bowl for your favorite move or anything else you can imagine.

This template is all about being in control of your board and maneuvering in and around the pocket.

"The Science Launch template gives me that little bit extra speed and projection when I'm going for my airs. Fast and loose, just the way I like it."

 – James Nymeyer on the Science Launch template

The Launch.

The Launch ( Speed ) : The Fastest board in our lineup.

A straighter template designed to be exceedingly fast through all sections with the simple aim to launch you as high as humanly possible.

The Launch also holds a strong rail in deep hollow barrels where driving speed is a must.

Aim for a section, be it down the line of a deep pit or towards a lip to accelerate you skyward, the Launch will get you there very quickly.

"My board is a really functional all-round shape, I can count on it to ride epic in any type of conditions. It's super fast, yet it still has enough curve to control that speed for destroying sections and blasting airs!"

 – Tom Rigby on his Signature model

Tom Rigby Pro Model

Science RIGBY.

Tom Rigby Pro Model

Tom Rigby is one of the very best riders in the world today.

He is a cool, collected cat on the beach, once in the water though his radical approach is only overshadowed by his naturally smooth style which is the envy of all that watch him.

“My board is a really functional all-round shape, I can count on it to ride epic in any type of conditions. The main reason it works well for me is because it’s super fast and I love going as fast as possible. Yet it still has enough curve to control that speed for destroying sections and blasting airs!”
