I've met zeph, he's a nice guy and I'm glad he joined in on the topic. I can use the opinion of someone that is doing really high end boards.
Are people happy with the EPS blanks from WNC in San Diego? Would be nice to just pick one up as opposed to dealing with shipping.
PS - thanks again for letting me borrow your fish - mine is coming along OK, after a few delays.
what do people think of xtra foam any of you shaped with it?
If it's from South Africa and it's made by Rod McDonald it's good stuff. They know what there doing and supply a good part of Europe.
good good :o)
will have some soon then!! gotta be better than surfari
Xtra Foam and Safari are two separate companies. The newer Safari is much better than what they launched in the begining. The first batches were terrible.
Just shaped a batch of Blair, very nice don't know about glass or how they will work in the water yet. Also I shaped some Surfblanks America recently it has really gotten very good and surfs really well also.
Forgot to mention with the foam quality improving and also deliveries you can chose whom to work with. Some of the guys out there are real jerks and finally we can say "NO", we can chose who to work with!
Blair, Blair, Blair, Blair..... Need I say it again.
Simply the best! Hand shape with ease, machine friendly, The best for colorwork. Better than Clark or Walker ever were.
Great people, great service, great rocker.....Now the solo on the greatest wood and rocker glue up facility.
Come on. I used all that other crap. The sh!t practically melted on my shaping racks. Just sanding them was enough pressure to dent the other side... Boooo!
You must be talking about US because all the Aussie type formulas are harder not softer. Yes Blair is ok but they still need more plugs. Don't write off the other crew that has good foam also like KM, Surfblanks, some Bennett and the newer Home Blown which is MDI and lately very good (very tight cell structure and uses less resin). If I can find an MDI which comes close to TDI I will switch just to do my part for our envirment. No matter what anyone says and I'm a TDI fan anything and I say anything we can do to go greener we should do. Bring on new resins and clothes etc. I don't care how good a company is I will never put 100% of my eggs in one basket! Also I won't buy from self centered egos!
