QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
so will I be able to use this on a hollow wooden balsa board i am making? or would i need a different Kit?
Yes, this Epoxy resin kit is recommended for glassing a wood surfboard. The other type of resin, polysester resin, will not bond to wood as well as epoxy.
The description says up to 12’ SUP boards. May I assume that includes the 2 layer top and 1 layer bottom?
Yes the beginner SUP epoxy glassing kit comes with 6 oz fiberglass cloth for 2 layers on the deck and 1 layer on the bottom. Additional layers of fiberglass cloth and carbon fiber reinforcements can be purchased separately if you want to increase the strength of your SUP.
Is the leash plug vented?
Vented Leash Plugs are not inlcuded in the fiberglassing kits and can be added to your order here. A stock FACTORY leash plug is included.
Is the kit for the short board meant for 4 oz bottom, 4+4oz top? What would suggest if I want a 4+6 top?
If younwant 6+4 deck you can order an additional 2-3 yards of 6 oz fiberglass cloth depending on board length.
Will this epoxy dry clear to show the wood underneath on a wooden board?
Yes the epoxy resin is water clear when applied. It has a very slight blue tint as an optical enhancer which is not seen in thin layers on a surfboard.
