The number one benefit of epoxy is its strength to weight ratio. Epoxy resin weighs less but is much stronger than polyester. 100% percent stronger against pressure dings.
Travel - Epoxy boards are ideal travel boards. You can count on your board arriving at your destination in one piece ready to ride. The board is lightweight. So it is easy to load and unload.
Repair - Contrary to popular belief, epoxy boards are quite easy to repair. A simple epoxy repair putty can patch up a ding in less than a minute. Cures in water, sand later.
Environmentally Friendly - EPS and Epoxy are more environmentally friendly. Epoxy resin emits almost zero fumes and is less toxic to the laminator.
Flex - Epoxy has a quicker flex pattern, giving the rider better whip and board response time. This difference also gives the board the added benefit of catching waves easier and getting up to speed faster.
Repeatability - These boards are hand shaped from a standard blank. Every board is the same. When you travel, you can leave a board at your favorite place or sell the board. You fly back with no board fees and just order a replacement board.
UV Resistant - Epoxy can withstand more sun exposure and will not yellow or fade over time. This doesn’t mean its ok to leave your board in your car during a heatwave but with proper care, your board will last a long time.
