Crafting high performance boards to suit specific styles and skills is not an easy task, but until know Gaastra has done a great job. The new 2012 Apace is one of the fastest racing and freeride boards ever. The board blends the best features of directional and twin tip boards into a mutant design intended to offer top performance at high speeds. The ergonomic profile and compact outlines make it very fast and accurate.

The powerful tail provides excellent release and maximizes the early planning potential of the board. The board has a special bottom shape, featuring a mono concave front section into a double concave tail section. This bottom design improves the quality of the glide by optimizing power delivery. Another advantage of this design is that it makes the board very stable when it reaches top speeds.

The rider can also choose from multiple stance options the most suitable one.  The Gaastra Apace is constructed using a solid fiberglass structure which makes it durable and light.
