STANDARD EPS SURFBOARD
Uses a standard Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) with a plywood stringer blank after shaped it is glassed using epoxy resin with two layers of four ounce fibre glass on the deck and one layer of four ounce fibre glass on the bottom.
Usually added with patches of four ounce fibre glass to wrap around the tail to prevent the rail/tail from crushing or denting severely. Using an EPS blank it’s typically the lightest surfboard construction for fast performance surfing!
The added foam gives you more paddling speed and increased manoeuvrability allowing you to ride a smaller board. EPS foam core is also known for it’s great durability. Together these make your board marginally lighter then the standard PU surfboard. EPS Construction is the way to go for your small wave performance surfboards.
STANDARD PU STRINGER
This is your most common standard stock surfboard. Using a Polyurethane (PU) Foam blank with a plywood stringer after shaped it is glassed using a polyester resin with two layers of four ounce fibre glass on the deck and one layer of four ounce fibre glass on the bottom.
Patches of four ounce fibre glass are wrapped around the tail to prevent the rail/tail from crushing or denting severely. You will find most of our surfboards are built using this technology. This technology is great for everyday use and has performance in all types of conditions and wave sizes and levels of surfer.
