FAQ

  • What if I somehow do get a ding?

    In the rare case of a ding, we recommend not repairing unless absolutely necessary. None of the components in Lib Tech Waterboards will absorb water.

    We recommend using stickers, wax, hot-melt glue, etc. or anything to avoid polyester, epoxy, sandpaper and sanding. Dust and sanding sucks.

    DO NOT USE POLYESTER RESIN.

    Epoxy, and UV resins can all be used if absolutely necessary.
    We favor epoxy for strength and safety. Never let any unhardened resin come in contact with your skin. Always remember, razor blades instead of sandpaper if possible.

  • Is it epoxy or polyester?

    Instead of toxic industry-standard polyester or old-fashioned epoxy, we use a new chemistry we call LVR43 HIGH REBOUND MATRIX that has higher elongation, extreme ding resistance, and responsive rebound.

  • What is the core?

    It is a brand new core called, LIGHTWEIGHT POWERPOP AIRSPRING CORE. Our exclusive closed cell alloy formula will not absorb water, is springy like a trampoline, contains up to 50% recycled content, and uses ozone friendly blowing agents. All offcuts go back into the process of making new blanks. This is a new formula that didn’t exist a year ago.

  • What are your surboards made of?

    We have completely redesigned the surfboard manufacturing process from the bottom up. Our new process shares nothing in common with contemporary surfboards and snowboard manufacturing. Over 30 intricate pieces go into each board, yet only the 10/24 stainless fin screws are status quo to the surf world.”“With our new process called “Isotropic Fusion” we are building super ding-resistant boards that have high energy return (liveliness) and a silky-smooth timbre even in choppy surf. We have a new foam chemistry, new fibers, new vibration dampeners, a new matrix, new fin boxes, our own fins, even our own lightweight leash plugs, and much friendlier manufacturing methods that have eliminated sandpaper, tape, paintbrushes, dust clouds and toxic solvents.
