My boards are coming out on the light side. I use a supergreen 10-1Y blank with 2 6oz layer deck, and 1 6 oz bottom.
Are there non-obvious ways to make your board heavier without incurring more cost to your surfboard?
These are the ones I’ve tried:
use denser blank - same cost but longer wait because mitch’s shop stocks mostly supergreens
same number of layers but use heavier cloth from 6 to 8 oz - more expensive
any help would be appreciated. Thanks
You can add wood - extra or wider stringers, tailblocks, noseblocks…not only adds well-balanced weight but is cheap, easy, beautiful, and functional…
Don’t squeegee the lam coat nearly as much…can add 2 lbs. easily. That’s what’s on the floor around the glassing stands.
You could also go with 2x 6oz on the bottom or maybe a six and a 10 oz on the deck. Don’t wring the resin out of the glass so much. A little extra weight in a longboard is a good thing, helps with the glide.
