I just got back from Brazil a couple of days ago. I was really impressed by the quality and super high finish level of brazilian surfboards. Almost all the shortboards were super polished, looking like tey were glossed, but extremely light and strong, way stronger than polyester made boards. Someone told me most of the shapers use a Brazilian special epoxy resin, made especially for the latest surfboards manufacturing specs. Has anyone heard about that? I also suppose this resin should be very easy to work with instead of commonly available epoxy, since 99% of the sticks in Brazil are made with epoxy instead of poly… and this sounds weird for us!
The new super-duper, only made in Brazil, stronger than polyester, better than RR, is called Brazilian BS, ha ha he he lol
