Epoxy Surfboards

Prism Surfboards Epoxy surfboards are high quality, lightweight and high performance surfboards.

We have opted for a proven construction that is both robust and efficient: epoxy resin around a high-density EPS core.

The central batten is made of wood for all sizes. We use 2 layers of fiber (6 and 4 Oz), in crossed fiberglass (biaxial), it offers excellent resistance and a lot of reactivity.
An additional layer of protection localized only on the deck makes it possible to reinforce the board without weighing it down.

What is an epoxy surfboard?

 

Epoxy is a thermosetting chemical compound that, when combined with other substances, forms a plastic material such as epoxy resin, which is used to make quality, lightweight, high-performance surfboards.

Surfboards on the market are made of either polyester resin or epoxy resin. Specifically, polyester boards are formed from a polyurethane foam, or PU, core covered with fiberglass impregnated with polyester resin, while epoxy boards are formed from a polystyrene foam, or EPS, core and then laminated with fiberglass and epoxy resin. At first glance, the EPS core is less dense than the PU core, but the technical characteristics of the epoxy resin are such that it is stronger than the polyester resin.

 

What are the advantages of the epoxy surfboard?

 

Strength and durability define the epoxy surfboard. Its structure resists impacts better than the polyester resin board, especially since the polystyrene in the epoxy board's structure has the ability to recover from minor impacts. Less dense, the polystyrene foam also guarantees the lightness and buoyancy of the epoxy board. Containing more air than a polyester board, the epoxy board, even if small, has better buoyancy than a larger polyester board.

Choose an epoxy board if you are looking for a reliable material, especially if you are new to surfing and you risk to make your board suffer from small daily shocks due to lack of experience. Surfers looking for reactivity can also opt for an epoxy board which, thanks to its rigid structure, reacts immediately to the slightest movement.
