We Are Die Hard Surfers and Demand The Best
You should too!
Having the best equipment in the water is much more than who spent the most money. It’s about gaining the knowledge of what goes into your surfboard and the value these elements have added. We’ve found a few tricks and differences that seem so simple but offer you so much more!
Ever had a quote for fiberglassing your surfboard in epoxy resin? Did they tack on an extra $75… $100 to the overall price?
We found epoxy resin is a premium material and prefer using it to glass all of our surfboards. Epoxy allows for a lighter, stronger, brighter, and better for the environment surfboard. Better materials make better surfboards, and that is why we made epoxy standard for fiberglassing your board!
Most surfboards are fiberglassed with a standard double 4oz deck. This means the board is glassed with 2 layers of 4oz fiberglass cloth. Our boards come standard with double 4oz layers, but we add an extra 4oz deck patch. Where most companies will charge for this patch we include it as standard protocol. We want our boards to last longer and have the extra strength that will extend the life of your board. This will help reduce those annoying pressure dents that are inevitable.
Have you ever wedged your board into the sand or set your board on the concrete and cracked the tip of your nose? Have you ever walked into your house and hit your nose on the wall?
Same here! This is why we include the resin tip standard in all of our shortboards. The resin tip infuses the resin with the stringer and is fiberglassed, this means it won’t crack like a traditional board would.
When manufacturers add the leash cup to a surfboard they have to color the resin. Unfortunately, they’re boring and only choose white which is the surfboard industries gold standard. It’s your custom board so have some fun! Like other manufacturers we have to color the resin for our leash cups too. However, we want to spice things up and give you the option to choose the color of your leash cup.
So you got your new board and you’re super stoked to surf it! The wax is on, the foot pad is on, the fins are in, and you’re ready to charge but something is missing. The leash tie! Every surfer has experienced this at least once before. We want to take that potential torture out of your life by including a leash tie standard with all surfboards. Something small and silly, but it’s a lifesaver.
You wouldn’t buy a car without tires would you? So why do boards not come with fins anymore?
Most manufacturers don’t include fins with the boards. All our boards come standard with a set of fins. We want to make sure that when you take your board out of our hands it’s ready to surf.
