PROVEN SURFBOARD CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE
The construction is built in a mold which has the advantage that all boards are identical. Three layers of fiberglass cloth are wrapped around the styrofoam core in an epoxy resin matrix to form an inner sandwich wall in combination with strong and durable 1.0 mm original wood including an extra layer of wood on the deck. The core materials are then ‘sandwiched‘ into the board during the molding process. The unique properties of wood are its natural rigidity, superior resistance to compression and higher energy absorption compared to other materials.
MAXIMUM DURABILITY AND VALUE
When the wood is molded together with the fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin, a very hard outer layer is created that gives the board a very durable ‘shell’. Because of the extra strength the wood gives the board, the boards are very durable and a lighter EPS foam can be used which makes the boards extremely light. This double wood sandwich construction is an expensive addition to add value to the boards and make them last longer.
THE LIGHTEST BOARDS IN THE MARKET
The advantages of this technoloy are that the boards are all light weights with the highest dynamic shape stability and flex.
