2009 CWB Transcend 138
Why drastically change a shape that is loved by most everyone? We didnt, we just made it better. Last years Transcend brought a new fin technology that changed the way the board bites the water on edge. This engineering breakthrough enables you to make the molded fins longer by bolting on extensions which changes the way the board releases from the wake. For the new 2009 Transcend, we have perfected this design. The molded fins have been sharpened to reduce drag and hold a stronger edge. We also widened the board by a quarter inch adding surface area for more speed and increased pop off the wake. We took our center spine technology and ran with it. This board has the deepest center spine that runs the complete length of the board. The spine not only breaks the water to stomp landings, but creates an edge-to-edge response that is lightning fast. The result is a surfy smooth feel that is very poppy off the wake and is the softest landing Transcend ever. During the testing process, Andrew was so excited about the new design, he tried to steal the prototype several times. When you love a shape as much as Andrew, and the rest of the team, they get creative on making it disappear. Ride it and see for yourself.

This board is so smooth in the water, the take-offs provide plenty of pop without shooting you straight up and out of control. because of the center spine that runs the whole board length this board lands super smooth and landing in the flats are not quite as bad

I’ve ridden a lot of boards and was looking for one that combined the smooth pop of my last board (Faction) and the speed and rail response of a board I rode a few times this summer (Murray). The Transcend is a good blend, big pop without being overly aggressive and a nice smooth edge that digs easily. I really like how the board lands with the extended spine and the release from the wake is great without the fin extensions.
