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.

Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2006/12/29 10:39 I'm personally torn. If you are accustomed to foam, I don't see a big reason to make the switch over to epoxy. Sounds like you already made a decision, so I hope that works out.

Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2007/01/03 18:04 I have a 9'6" Ben Aippa double ender Epoxy longboard. This board is great. I live in New England so this board gets alot of action. I got it as a gift for Christmas a few years back and it is still in great shape. It is pretty light for such a big board and is also very strong. I also have a 6'10" Santa Cruz epoxy which is super light.

Re:epoxy longboards pros and cons - 2007/01/04 21:57 Expoxy boards seem to go alright for the first while...but once the get a ding, they leak in water very quickly at soak up. Its also very hard to get the water out! The boards are also moulded, and very hard to custom do.

Also buying a board thats made in China, doesnt help out anyone really! Give the local guy a break, the one who busts his ass off in a shaping bay, sniffing in resins and all that to make a board better than anything!
