Thermoformed Technologies

With close to 40 years’ experience in windsurf, surfboard and SUP manufacturing TAHE is a pioneer and expert in the field of thermoformed composite construction technologies. In short - we know molding. The distinguishing feature of TAHE’s molded technologies can be summed up in two words - PRESSURE and PRECISION
This combination of PRESSURE with PRECISION is unique in the world of SUP, Surf and Windsurf board manufacturing, resulting in industry leading consistency and quality.

2&10- Thermoformed plastic skin (ASA).  / 3 - 50g/m2 Fiberglass wrap. / 4&8 - 200g/m2 Woven Fiberglass. / 5 - 200g/m2 Woven Fiberglass Reinforcement Patch in standing area. / 6 - 200g/m2 Woven Fiberglass Rail Reinforcement. / 7 - Molded, Watertight EPS Foam Core. / 9 - 50g/m2 Fiberglass wrap.

ACE-TEC Technology

Thermoforming around a Polystyrene Core
• Molded, light weight and watertight 15 kg/m3 EPS Foam Core.
• Fiberglass reinforcement for improved stiffness and
performance.
• ASA Polymer outer skin for unmatched durability and impact
resistance.
• Embossed EVA foam pad for maximum comfort.
• Molded external inserts – no penetrations through outer shell
and maximum strength.

2- Rugged Polyethylene Outer Shell.
3- Molded, Watertight EPS Foam Core.
4- Polyethylene outer shell.

TOUGH-TEC Technology

Thermoforming around a Polystyrene Core
• Molded, Watertight EPS Foam Core for structural integrity
and stiffness.
• Extremely tough outer polyethylene skin for extreme
impact resistance.
• Embossed EVA foam pad for maximum comfort.
• Molded external inserts – no penetrations through outer
shell and maximum strength.

DURA-TEC Technology

Thermoforming around a Polystyrene Core
• Molded, Watertight EPS Foam Core for structural integrity
and stiffness.
• Extremely tough outer polyethylene skin for extreme
impact resistance.
• Embossed EVA foam pad for maximum comfort.

TWIN SHEET Technology

Super Solid Build Quality
• The deck and hull sections are formed and sealed together
in one single operation = incredibly durable. The join line is
invisible and 100% secure.
• TST is creating a product that is lighter, stronger and
smoother finished than rotomoulding.
• Our polyethylene is anti-UV treated and highly resistant
to knocks and scratching = exceptional durability.
• Molded external fin inserts = no penetrations through outer
shell and maximum strength.

Inflatable and Soft Technologies

All of the hard shell boards you will find are manufactured at our Vannes, France facility. Why not 100%?
At this time the technology and assembly requirements for inflatables, soft-top surfboards and some kayaks are not yet possible at our factory. So we’ve partnered with exceptional manufacturing facilities specializing in these products who build them to the exact specifications of our design team. Our long-term goal is to constantly increase the percentage of components
and finished goods that can be sourced and manufactured in France.

1- Deck Pad. / 2&3- Inner and outer PVC layer reinforcement along the rail.
4- Single layer PVC. / 5&8- PVC stringer patch.
6- High Density Dropstitch 4”75 or 6” thickness. / 7- Bottom stringer.

SUP-AIR Technology

Key Features
• Board thickness varied according to intended function.
BREEZE Performer 10’6 with 4”3/4 thickness for thinner
rails and better surfing, improved stability due to lower center
of gravity. All other boards with 6” thickness for
maximum stiffness.
• Ultra-light construction = easy to carry
• Reinforcements along the rails give the board very efficient
protection against abrasion.
• BREEZE Boards : Top & Bottom Stringer improves
stiffness vs. traditional inflatables.
• Twin Stiffening Stringers on SUP-YAK models.

Beach & Breeze Inflatable SUP


1- Leash plug / 2- Soft deck and rails / 3- 2 x 6oz Fiberglass layers + epoxy
4- EPS foam core / 5- Soft plastic fins / 6- Soft foam layer
7- Hard slick bottom / 8- Wood or composite stringers

PAINT Technology

Key Features
• Fiberglass & epoxy reinforced core = durability and
enhanced product lifetime.
• Soft IXPE foam top/rails and soft fins = comfort and
user-friendly performance.
• Durable protective deck layer = protects graphics.
• Soft, user-friendly fins with performance shapes =
safety and performance.
