The potential for world first aerials and bigger and better tricks has just gone into hyper drive with the announcement that Surf Liberation Inc, have designed a magnetic binding system for surfboards. Called FUEGZ, the binding system produces a magnetic force of up to 180lbs and allows the surfer to punt hand’s free airs and no grab spins and flips, without the fear of the surfboard getting away from them.
The binding system consists of a track system that is easily stuck in place on the deck of the surfboard and a magnet that is fitted in the instep of the foot binding. Importantly, the FUEGZ is designed to release quickly and easily, should the rider fall or wish to detach from the board. The FUEGZ design is currently patent pending, but already on sale, a complete FUEGZ binding system retails for $179, although all parts can be bought individually.
FUEGZ really do have the potential to change surfing forever, you can expect to see the range and height of aerial tricks go beyond anything we have ever believed possible until now and there is no reason why we all can’t have a serious air game now! Check out the official FUEGZ website here, where you can place an order and find out the team behind the product.
With the use of FUEGZ, what tricks do you envisage now being landed and are they something you would like to try on your own board, or are you more excited about seeing the prospect of seeing pro surfers pushing the limits with them?
