Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2006/12/21 02:27 I would recommend no bigger than a 10'0 even for tiny surf another six inches will just get in the way of any kind of turning ability. Epoxy is the way to go check out the Bruce Jones 10 epoxy board.....good stuff.

Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2006/12/21 10:38 I use to own two epoxy surfboards, (surftech) a corky carrol 7,6 & a robert august 8,0 both exellent boards best i ever had, the only problem I sold them during an injury. now they are too expensive. belief me my greatest regret.

Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2006/12/21 20:24 I've got a surfteck board which is a 'hybrid' shape, somewhere between a mini-mal and a shortboard. At 8" its not small, but its turns beautifully, and is a joy to paddle and stable in take-off.... not radical, but a great allround board and indestructable when travelling. If I can take just one board this is it.. Only problem is I can't duckdive it (its too bouyant, or I'm not fat/strong enough)...

Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2006/12/22 00:27 Im not sure the duckdive will be a problem, because with a 10,6 is imposible. hehe

I have a shortboard 6.0 surftech. In comparison with my normal old board i only see pros. lighter, faster, stronger... in addition the foam is impermeable, it means that if you break all the epoxy layers (i never see that), the foam dont absorbs water.
