An extension of the Torque Series designed for the larger paddler or someone looking for a really stable board. Featuring contours similar to the Torque Series; high performance bottom and rails with a fuller outline. The boards are stable to paddle, have great trim, maintain speed and surf really well off the tail. The CM Longboard Series in a few words is “a longboard with punch”!

Beam - Width of a board when measured at its widest point

Buoyancy - A board that has adequate volume for the riders weight will float higher in the water and will tend to be more stable and paddle easier and faster than a board of less volume that sits lower in the water. Measured in liters under Volume

Carry Handle - Located in the center of the deck to carry the board

Deck - The top of the board

Deck Pad - Area on the deck where the paddler stands

Fin -Mounted under the tail, they help stabilize the board and assist in tracking

Rail - The side of the board where the top and bottom meet

Rocker - The upward sweep of the board toward the bow and stern. The more pronounced the rocker, the easier the board is to pivot

Stability - The tendency for the board to stay upright. If the “righting moment” is greater than the “heeling moment”, the board will return to the upright position

Tipping or Heeling - A force, either unintentional or intentional, tipping the board over to one side. Also described as “heeling moment”
