Through various phases of design, the carbon wrap technology is constantly evolving. The latest Diamond Edition Carbon Wrap provides the most up to date torsional flex on a surfboard that any surfboard shaper can deliver.
Carbon Wrap Technology
CARBON WRAP™ Is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-defines the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled.
Selected density, EPS cores are “wrapped" with strategically positioned carbon fibre 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 carbon then "wraps” from the bottom, around the rails and onto the deck.
This unique method creates Carbon Wrap’s lively flex that loads and releases...resulting in next level speed and drive. Running along the rails, onto the deck, the carbon acts as a rear foot power point, (increasing drive and control) and a patch to minimize pressure denting.
Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are encased with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and our exclusive carbon deck inlay, which is strategically engineered to add fast re-flex memory under the surfer’s stance and suited to the surfers weight (#FlexToWeight) By tapering the carbon into long, pointed ends, forward and rear, the flex blends out naturally towards the nose and tail. A full layer of custom Australian made S-Cloth, combined with another layer of custom direct sized 5oz, adds strength without rigidity, or excess weight and allows the board to maintain flex while alleviating crease points.
CARBON WRAP TECHNOLOGY: Lightweight, without sacrificing strength. Increases drive and provides a unique and lightning fast re-flex effect, propelling your surfing into the next level of performance.

Phases of Carbon Wrap
DMS has been working alongside carbon tape Australian manufacturers Colan for many years constantly upgrading and perfecting the carbon wrap. The design is ever evolving and always progressing, unlike many other surf technologies.
Phase 1. Saw the roll out of the carbon wrap technology on DMS Surfboards around 2011.
Phase 2. DMS linked with Matt Biolos and Lost Surfboards to allow the patented technology to be utilised on all Lost Mayhem Surfboards and DMS only.
Phase 3. Forever evolving the carbon wrap tape was thinned out and additional surf companies such as Mark Richard's & MIS/FITS have utilised the tech.
Phase 4. Diamond Edition Carbon Wrap provides the most efficient & clean of all designs to date. This new tape provides the perfect amount of flex when placed strategically to give you the best performance.
