Change Climate teamed with renowned surf craft innovation expert, Ben Wallbridge to conduct trials that culminated in the first board shaped and glassed with Bio-Epoxy. The appeal of using a renewable resource with superior performance characteristics was immediate for Wallbridge. One of the immediate benefits noted was the ease with which the Bio-Epoxy is handled in mixing and sp
read across the foam blank. The board was glassed with a hot coat only and the strength aspect was underestimated. The water trials were a huge success, it appears boards made with Bio-Epoxy and Wallbridge’s progressive designs incorporating the use of carbon fibre will be lighter and stronger than any epoxy, petrochemical or eco on the market today.
