Why Lieuwe?

At She Flies HQ, we get approached for partnerships often. A pleasure and a testament to the impact you, as women, are making to an industry. The decision to partner isn't as easy.

If we were going to partner with a board designer, it must be led by facts, stats and performance, not pretty designs and stories.

Flexible Core & Flexible Rocker
= Easy on the knees & choppy condition

With very good "pop"; you’ll jump higher than before. It's flexible wooden core and rocker makes it easy on the knees during landings (Note the Carbon version - Carbonara - is much stiffer due to the harder material)

Josie prefers the Carbon Version (you can tell with the black tip) as it's lighter!
Medium Rocker & Defined Channels
= Better "grip" which improves upwind
