It's how hard shell bic boards are made. They don't call it a condom but a socks.i
A molded foam in an fiber impregnated socks with plastic sheet up and harden in a mold.
Other companies do it too.
About 12 years ago I saw a great thermoplastic skinned board by Greg Clough of Aloha. He blew a high tolerance tight cell Styrofoam blank and then it went into a 2 piece concrete coffin where the thermoskins were vacced onto the blank joined at the rail apex all around. Fucking indestructible. He tried to get the local Surf Lifesaving Association to swap from old polyester resin craft that spent most of their lives being repaired, he organised a meeting and threw one of his boards down 40 concrete stairs without a scratch. Almost.
The dinosaurs said no because they had a long time handshake agreement with a local Board maker. So despite the financial gain of less repairs, less down time and quicker manufacture Greg's smarter, environmentally better business didn't flourish.
The moral here is that even if the new idea is much better , makes money and environmental sense, it can still fail because dopey people will always be able to say Nah.
Life should be as smooth and honest as a wave offers itself.
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.
