Starting August 1st, 2016 the Carbon-Tape and Vector net Reinforcements will be included in the price!















 





Standard Carbon-Glass tape has a 4.8 oz weave with both carbon strips and fiberglass. CG tape provides both tensile strength & Compression strength. It can be used to reinforce the tail and rails or down the stringer line to help prevent stinger pop on the deck. Also gives the board more spring or “kinetic flex” when used on the bottom. Works great on stringer-less boards. Comes in black or custom colors. Can be cut to size and tips pointed or rounded.




Carbon-Glass Tape: $2.00 per foot.

Tail / Rails Savers approx  1 yard = Included

-The Remix




Carbon-Glass Tape: $2.50 per foot.  Deluxe: + 3 yards / 9’ x $2.00 = $22.50

^ I believe through test trials, that using glass tape over the stringer will prolong the life of your board. I’ve seen way too many boards come in for repairs and the first place they go bad is on the deck along the stringer. Using tapes on the bottom also help give the board more flex support. Boards with wood stringers may not need it but stringer-less  boards can use some extra support.




Carbon Tape 3” (6-Line) Power Strips. $2.50 per ft. + 6’ = $15.00

Helps reinforce the stringer. Prevents stringer pop, and added tail strength. Almost obligatory for stringer-less boards to prevent deck collapse. Without a stringer the rails become the main source of strength for the board. I see these tapes becoming the norm for Stringer-less boards and board with HDS stringers.

“You will pay for this”! It’s all included in the price! Haha!


4+2+4 Tape just came in! Looks Hot!



Vector Net comes in different weaves. #138, #233, #226, #227

The diagonal crossed Technora Aramid fiber. It has a high tensile strength which is how much it can be pulled before it breaks. This makes it good for use on the tails and bottoms of boards to help add kinetic flex or “pop” especially on stringer-less boards. The #227 dense weave offers some impact resistance but pressure dents still occur.




#227 Vector net (Dense weave) $2.50 per foot

#227 Vector netting Tail/Rail Patch 18” = Included

-The Streaker




#226 Vector Net (Light weave) $2.50 per foot

#226 Vector netting Tail Patch 18” = Included

#226 Vector net (Light weave) $2.50 per ft. (Regular Price)

-The Vampire Fish



#226 Vector Net (Light weave) $2.50 per ft. (Regular Price)

#226 Vector Net: Full 1 Side Bottom Wrap approx 9ft. = $22.50



This is #138 Tri-Axial Pattern is made of Techora Aramid fibers, which are more flexible than carbon fiber. It’s said to provide dent protection as well as added flex strength.

#138 Vector Net  (2.5 oz thick weave) $4.50 per foot

#138 Vector Net: Tail patch: 18”  = $6.75 (Check for availability)

FYI: (Resin tints consume extra resin and materials, aside from being a delicate operation to achieve. Requires a steady hand and patience. It’s not easy to do especially a clean, cut-lap resin tint, but in the end it’s worth it giving the board a classic look showing multiple shades of vibrant color).

The Soul Saver 9’0” with a cheater polish finish.


Surfboards come in a variety of finishes. They range anywhere from a rough sanded finish 320 grit (Matte), to clear sprayed, wet sanded 600-800 grit (Satin), Scotch Brite© finish (which is a semi-polished look), cheater polished using a buffing pad and polishing compound (Shiny), to full high gloss (Ultra shiny). Each one requires extra steps and extra work. I’m still playing this one by ear. If I outsourced the polishing and high gloss they would charge me extra. And I mean a lot extra, like $75.00 to do a High Gloss longboard. High Gloss requires an extra hot coat called a gloss coat. Afterwards, the seam needs to be ground down, then it’s a bunch of sanding steps using several high grit sand papers, then buffing with polishing compound. I’m feeling tired just explaining the process to you. And yes, it is a total work out. For right now I find that cheater polish to be the best option and it’s way more efficient than the high-gloss. I’m learning how to get very little cloth burns on the poly and the cheater polish can almost pass for a High Gloss. High Gloss is recommended for Fishes, Retro shapes, Fun shapes, and Longboards. High Gloss comes out to an almost mirror-like finish and is one step above the cheater polish. High gloss however, is not recommended on high performance shortboards as it adds some weight.


Cheater Polish: $25.00

  1. High Gloss (Gloss Coat + Polish): $50.00 For Polyester Only.


The base price is for a wet sanded finish, which looks Satin. All Epoxy surfboards come with the standard Satin finish. But if you wanted one polished and shiny it is doable for an additional charge. Epoxy surfboards do not get High Gloss. The Polyester boards also come with the Satin finish, but they can be polished with a shiny high luster finish. Polyester surfboards can also get the High Gloss treatment for the ultimate bling.


+$25.00 for Polished finish is reasonable if you wanted to add some affordable bling to your new board. We can either include this in the price and charge more or make it an option since these are custom boards. For many the sanded finish will do, but some boards deserve a shiny gloss finish. Looks even better.


When ordering your new board please specify; Sanded, Polished, or High Gloss for the finish. Otherwise Sanded is default.

Custom Surfboards Starting @

 

New Base Price honoring a standard “Plain Jane” surfboard. All white, Wood Stringer, 1-3 fin boxes of choice; Single, Twin or Thruster tri-fin. Quad and 5-fin is extra. Standard glassing using minimal 1 yard of tape or tail strips.  Special HDS stringers are extra. +$20.00


I did the math and a board with 5 fin boxes and full carbon tape on both sides + tail guards + HDS comes out to +$50.00 (up to 6’6”). I’ll let you decide on whether or not you want all the extras. It does make a difference. Boards hold up better and last longer. Before I had the all inclusive price for Deluxe Glassing. Most of our boards lately have been that way. But if you wanted a true “plain Jane” you can save -$50.00


Add anything to Plain Jane and it’s extra, but don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you. Lol Prices here are all reasonable.


Pricing current as of: 04.12.18 Prices are subject to change without notice.

Wait time on Custom Orders:

That’s just the way it is.

The good news is time flies!
