The Shield is the most basic of all the Mid Range boards, however still has many of the features found on Pro Model boards. The PP Core is the benchmark in bodyboard core technology. It is not as brittle as the cheaper EPS Cores, and is stiffer and more durable than PE Cores. It is also lightweight and waterproof. This makes this board much better suited to more high performance bodyboarding.
The PP Core is then strengthened by a Carbon Fibre S5 Stringer System. This allows the board to flex, but ensure that it will always return to a flat position. The Shield also has Nose Bulbs for grip, and graduated channels to help the rider hold their line in hollow waves.
