our epoxy surfboards
EPS Epoxy surfboards have its advantages not only in the sea with performance but also in our surf shop in the manufacturing process.
The beauty about having an EPS core compared to PU is that EPS can be broken down then compacted back together. This allows us to recycle every bit of waste from our blanks and even make boards out of the recycled waste. All our waste is taken back to where it is produced and given a new life, whether it's packaging, building insulation or even into another surfboard blank.
If we move on to laminating the epoxy surfboards, straight away you notice the epoxy resin we use is a lot more environmentally friendly with a 29% biocarbon content. It also has a lot fewer hazardous chemicals in which makes it so much safer to work with. Not only is it safer and better for the environment but it is 4x stronger than PU resin! Our factory is one of few, if not the only factory in the UK, purely set up to use epoxy resin, and we are the largest consumer of this resin! This allows us to use epoxy resin in a completely different way than other factories, making our epoxy surfboards stronger, harder and more durable.
Which is why we can offer a warranty with every epoxy surfboard!
Moving on to the 'shaping' we use a precision shaping CNC machine meaning we can get everything you want from concave to your dims with millimetre precision, reducing the amount human error. This means once your file is saved with us we will be able to replicate the exact same board over and over again or tweak it if needs be.
Moving from machine its finished up by hand then straight into the laminating room where we are using the top quality Aerialite surf glass and aerospace spec carbon fibre to make our Epoxy surfboards light, strong and durable.
