We use a similar process that converged the FUSION the FUZE, but now with the ZEPHYR and the latest model of OC designs, called OSPREY. The radical narrow foot wells presented us with a challenge. The problem of seaming the hull and the deck was accomplished. The first ever deep seat well can accommodate the stationary seat but also can be outfitted with a sliding seat. The water in the seat well is drained out through a central drain connected to the venture, redesigning the draining system in the foot wells. A new graphite custom flap was designed with a different angle to allow for even more water flow and improve suction. New smaller ama is shaped to accommodate the lower volume of the hull .
Outrigger Connection also ventured into paddleboard production. Although we didn't design the hull shapes of our paddleboards, we were first to introduce to the paddle boarding community to molded graphite vacuum bagged paddleboards. Whether it was the Joe Barks shaped MALOLO unlimited paddleboard or Steven Ing's shaped 12 foot stock ELEU paddleboard. Recently, we collaborated on the development and production of the C4 VORTICE paddleboard.
