So I'm glassing the deck of my second board today.. my first board went great. Bottom/deck/hot coat all fantastic. Now I'm on my second board, glassed the bottom.. perfect. All is well. Today when I glassed the deck OMG what a surprise I stumbled into. Idk WTF happened, but I didn't even get to wrap the rails before my resin went jelly on me. I freaked. My heart sunk and my boards life was flashing before my eyes. Both rails looked terrible they were all globby and dry.. they would barely wrap. So I freaked out some more and decided to rip all the glass off before it was too late.
First post here, thought I'd gather some opinions on this situation from some shapers/glassers. Just recieved a custom board, super excited, it came out great and it's beautiful. For added durability went with a heavy glass job + deck patch, totaling 16 oz on the deck, volan glass etc. Since this is not a performance board, I figured it'd be fine to add some extra weight with the hopes of creating a more durable board. Took it out for a surf in a mellow, waist high crumbling waves, and cruised it real easy, took a total of about 10-15 rides or so.
Hi all! We are looking to begin manufacturing our boards in the USA, specifically our stringerless EPS boards. Are there any suggestions on companies we should investigate to do a seriously good job?
