Many thanks. The guy I discussed this with hasn't worked with cork previously - I'm not sure if he planned to bag it or not. Weight isn't a factor.
I'll check the Inspired site out before I head off.
I am getting confused now. Are you using peel ply for exposed cork only decks-- no resin over cork?
Is resin pulling up through the cork from underneath?

Don't know how any others do it but I use peel ply every time I put down the cork even when my final plan might be to hand layup over cork.
Example below of one of the first ones not using peel ply. All that shinny stuff is epoxy that doesn't belong and would have been wicked away with the peel ply
Foil out of mold with peel ply used. this will have a carbon fiber or nylon outer shell when finished
JSPR put up the link to Charlie's thread that lays it all out.
Just go back to post #26.
Hey BB30 :)
Thank you so much again for your advice... I think i now got the hang of it :) Well i still fucked up, but i had a cast on my left arm for 3 months and started to build this a week after it was taken off... But it turned out ok i guess :) At least for me...
Wonderful thread and continuing thereof. Thanks to all and Charlie for his expertise. Don’t know if I’ll ever get completely out of my Poly time warp, although I have done some Epoxy hand laminations the last few years and was happy with the results. Got a new glass shop set up here in Oregon and hope to experiment a bit with a vacuum bag setup. First I’ve got to clear the decks of unglassed Polys and a couple of Epoxy Shortboards. I’ got a couple of SUPs that would be great candidates for a bag setup. Funny, I just watched a Cuisack movie last night called “The Bagman”. Thanks again all. Inspiring!
De nada McDing :)
I received some input, so its only natural to maintain balance by giving some back :)
The one above is my third cork deck try and board number 7. Go ahead and have fun experimenting, you already got heaps of experience and it shouldnt give you a big hassle... Im just a backyarder learning for myself and i already achieved good results.
So i really want to encourage you to have fun doing some experiments. The universe already spoke to you, so just respond :)
Board looks great Litez. All cork praise goes to Drew Baggett of inspired surfboards. He really pushed the envelope on this conposite material.
And thx Mr Baggett, never wax again...
