Our Promise To You

My Environmental Promise: I use Forest Stewardship Council certified woods or woods salvaged from downed trees. All boards are glassed with epoxy resin which is cleaner for our environment and emits 50-75% less Volatile Organic Compounds than polyester resin. In my shop I have moderate ventilation and no need for a mask when glassing. Epoxy is lighter and stronger than polyester. My wood boards are nearly indestructible and should last a lifetime. Each board is quality crafted for strength, durability and concern for our environment.

My Satisfaction Promise: Ride your board for 30 days. If you don't like it, return it.

8'6" Mini Malibu

 Above shows balsa bracing between ribs in center and aft sections. To keep glassing weight down, and since this kind of basic board naturally strong, I was thinking that with addition of internal bracing, for vertical load compression distribution, that without adding any weight, this would add tad bit more strength. Think I'll do this with all future boards. 

 Kind of an interesting camera angle. I'm waiting for glue to dry and shop back light was perfect. This is where spar and number 4 rib meet on an 8'6" Mini Malibu. Rails are modified from our Evolution Nose Rider, thanks Dennis for your help.
