XTR Epoxy Pro provides me with XTR foam surfboard blanks. These blanks are given to Channel Islands who then shapes the surfboard.
The XTR foam is beneficial for me, because it is slightly more buoyant and light weight. And when paddling with one arm, I need that extra buoyancy to help me move across the water a little quicker.
XTR Epoxy pro also glasses my surfboards. “Epoxy Pro has developed it’s own custom epoxy resin formulation called XTR-16. This resin is ideal for extreme surfing conditions. It has perfectly balanced optimal characteristics of clarity (lack of discoloration), light weight, strength, and flexibility.”
Interesting fact: Most of the epoxy resins are less polluting and more environmentally friendly than others like Polyester resins, they have very low VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), so less material will evaporate and pollute the air!
