New Board, New ConstructionEvery year we strive to improve both our company and our boards. We take pride in never resting on previous successes, but continually pushing toward excellence. That said, we are introducing a new and improved Versa SUP that not only eliminates waste and energy but also adds more value to both the board and the eco-savvy rider. Our all-around epoxy SUP is still the superior board – but now there are even more reasons to want one.
Construction: Thermal Molded TechnologyThermal Molded Technology might sound super scientific, but actually it’s a pretty simple concept to grasp. Prior to this technology, the old school way of constructing boards was to cut blanks from a massive foam block. The foam block could yield up to 5 boards per block – but also produce 10 boards’ worth of waste. This was not the least bit environmentally conscious, which goes against our longstanding principle of respecting the environment and protecting the natural world. There was just one option, from our perspective. We had to do better, hopefully setting a new standard and inspiring other like-minded companies to do the same. It was time to advance our manufacturing and improve the basic construction process. The new, improved process starts with a mold; we inject the EPS foam inside. No waste! This simple but genius technique permits the exact, perfect amount of foam inside the mold. Not only is it more eco-friendly, but it allows every board have the same density and ideal, identical shape – as opposed to the less effective hand-shaping method. Plus, the EPS foam is heat laminated with fiberglass and epoxy resin in the mold. This process controls the ideal amount of resin into the mold, resulting in a stronger and more durable board every single time.
- Perfect shape every time
- Consistent foam density on boards
- Zero waste from manufacturing
- A stronger, more durable board
