Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better..
Trevor Marius Hansen and Doug Cannon again went into the shaping room to create the next design to carry the name Marius. With the huge success of Trevor's last board and a worldwide love for the way it rode, not many modifications were needed. Known for it’s ridiculous width, the Marius came on the scene two years ago and was met with some hesitation…until it was ridden. The wider a board is, the harder it is to get it on edge. V Tech changed that. The V Tech bottom shaping on the tip and tail allows for the board to change edge fast, and land super soft. These characteristics coupled with the massive amount of surface area for lift made for a shape that was one of the best selling pro decks on the market.
Welcome to 2008..
We all know that stiffness creates snap off the wake so Trevor and Doug added even more with the new top shape design. Marius co-designer Doug Cannon says “Our pro level decks for 2007 had X Flex technology which added stiffness to the tip and tail. The feedback on the new flex patterns was huge so for 2008 we took that technology, then added ridges to the top of Trevor’s new shape to make that tip and tail snap even more”. With that Doug and Trevor were able to thin out the tip and tail, trimming weight back even further. Looking at the base of the board, the molded fins were sharpened and moved towards the center of the board to get a bit more bite on edge. Thus giving the Marius a buttery ride, but the ability to lock in on a hard edge. Also the finbox has been removed and an additional two channels added to give that extra bite while maintaining speed. For such a huge amount of surface area, the new Marius is the fastest board in the quiver of CWB shapes.
Shipping in late June, the 2008 Marius needs to be placed at the top of your must try list. Whether it be the 134 or the 140 cm, this deck is sure to stoke. Break down the door of your local shop and demand the Marius. Also, keep your face on the media to have a chance to be the first to win one of Trevor’s new rides.
