My name is Eduardo Cenzano and I’m founder and director of Trinity. I’m an engineer by trade and a surfer and skier by obsession.
The love of skiing motivated me since I was 8 years old and has brought me to a level where, after all these years, I still ski at an advanced level.
I clearly recall one of my last skis, a “traditional” Fischer 2.10 metres long skis, tomato red and ruler straight. I also remember the day our trainer showed us skis with curved sides: “Try these and experience a miracle,” he said.
The team was astonished: “What on earth are these things?”
But to the surprise of the skiing world they were here to stay and became what we call ‘carving skis’. Although very few of in the sector recognised the potential at first glance, parabolic technology went on to revolutionise the world of skiing in the ‘90s.
Soon we became accustomed to looking down and seeing these strange skis under our feet, to the point that, today, they are the industry standard and there are many younger skiers who have no idea that, not so long ago, straight skis suddenly became almost extinct.
Years later the snowboard revolution arrived, bringing another application of parabolic carving to the slopes.
Fast-forward 20 years to Biarritz. Surfer Grant Strover suggested to me the possibility of developing similar technology for surfing and something inside me said it would work.
My company’s experience and knowledge in hydrodynamics – designing the sails of giant aero-generators – and our capacity for engineering and development of prototypes took care of the hard work. Six years after this first meeting in Biarritz we had mastered a technology that applied the ‘carving effect’ to surfboards, realising the same benefits that were seen in the skiing world:
• Easier turning
• Greater speed
• Improved stability
• More tolerance for error
And added benefits for surfing:
• Easier paddling
• Greater wave-catching ability
In short, a great leap forward in practising and progressing in the sport of surfing.
Since the meeting in Biarritz surfing has replaced skiing as one of my obsessions and I’ve been able to benefit personally from PRS © (Parabolic Rail System) technology on my boards. Parabolic (side-cut) rails bring benefits at all levels: a smoother, less traumatic, learning curve for beginners (and an end to nose-diving); faster progression to intermediate level; unique speed and exceptional maneuverability allowing advanced surfers to reach levels that were impossible before.
When we launched the first prototypes we were considered crazy.
Today leading boardsport companies Starboard, MH Surfboards, Firewire, Wetworks, Safari, Single Fins, Crest, etc. are collaborating with us and have made space in their quivers to allow for the new experiences that our technology brings to the sport.
We’ve perfected PRS © technology to the point where we know the precise curves necessary for each type of board and, according to complex and exhaustive research, are able to work out the exact curve which will optimise a board’s potential. The radius of the curve in relation to the other variables determines how the board will function. In modern surfing precision is fundamental.
Our PRS © technology has been patented in more than 20 countries and is patent pending in many others.
We invite you to join the Trinity R-Evolution and to become part of a community that believes is more than just spearheading a new era of Evolution for surfing. We are bringing in surfing’s latest Revolution.
