The Black Box excels in small, mushy waves and light to medium winds. While many boards are marketed for real-world conditions and real-world sailors, Dany Bruch’s creation takes it a step further by offering a very short and wide shape with a wide square tail with no excess volume. Create, hold speed and link more turns on smaller to medium sized waves like never before.
The Black Box is very short with a lot of width in the tail that carries through to the nose. The sharper rails help generate speed while the rocker provides maneuverability. These characteristics allow the board to quickly accelerate on the smallest and mushiest waves. This self-generated speed combined with the very short length will let the rider link together more turns with more speed when the conditions would normally only allow for one, if any.
A bigger Black Box is now available. At 107 liters, it offers that extra buoyancy for bigger riders, without losing any of the characteristics it is known for: self-generated speed, carving and looseness on the face of wave.
Dany Bruch, designer of the Black Box:
"The board is big, yes, but it is special. I have to say that on this board I had exactly the same joy feeling that I had when the original Black Box started to work… It was fun, fun and fun! I reckon this is exactly what the bigger guys out there need: something they can float out on when the lighter riders are on their 87s."
