|Mission||Better understanding for better surfing|
In spring 2014, RT surfboards owner and shaper Alberto Galletti teamed up with a passionate surfer, naval engineer
and fluid dynamics expert to accurately analyze the working conditions of a surfboard (and different fin set-ups) and
highlight the parameters that really affect its performances.
Using a virtual simulator (CFD), over the years that followed, they put under scrutiny countless different shapes, rail lines,
set-ups and solutions, while developing the recent models of the RT surfboards range.
At one point, at the end of the summer of 2016, they were discussing once again how and why the volume measurement was almost meaningless for a performance surfboard and how other aspects were more relevant.
Only this time they went on searching for a solution to offer a more useful tool.
Using innovative technology, gathering the CFD data collected during years of surfboards development, and blending the experiences and knowledge coming from the shaping, the engineering and the surfing fields, they came up with the surf-ID formula we are presenting here!
They keep tinkering and searching for new ideas and solutions to improve anyone surfing experience…
