Foamless board

Hey there shapers. I’ve had this idea for quite some time now, and I just wanna hear what you experienced guys think about it. I wonder if it’s possible to build a surfboard without a foam core. Theoretically it should be possible if you make a silicone mold of the top and bottom, cover it on the inside with a very strong cloth (Kevlar, carbon, spectra, dyneema etc.) and cover it with a thin layer of epoxy. It would probably need a couple of stringers and a number of crossed lammaellas to support. The benefit from all this work should be a very lightweight and strong (but not flexible) board. Anyone have any comments?? I’m sorry about my bad langauge but I’m from Denmark - hope you understand the principle… -Hans

I’ve made hollow boards since July ‘02…Six so far…The most recent boards, the only ones I surf these days, are hollow carbon fiber/wood boards…I could go into a lot of detail here, but if you click the link, there’s a whole lot more details there… I’m happy to answer any questions you might have… PaulJensen (I’m Danish too…!!!)

Paul, Beautiful work of art! SteveA
