TECHNOLOGY > PU/PE
PU/PE is traditional surfboard construction using polyurethane foam and polyester resin with fiberglass. PU/PE boards are known for their familiar flex and feel. Our standard PU/PE constructed boards use polyurethane blanks from US Blanks, Millennium Foam, or Artic Foam with Apple Core stringers. Glassing consists of the highest quality polyester resins and fiberglass.
Our standard glassing schedule for PU/PE stock or custom boards is two layers of 4oz fiberglass on the deck and a 4oz layer on the bottom commonly known as 4/4/4 construction. This makes for a light weight performance oriented board. They are stronger than Team glassed boards which have a single layer of 4oz glass on top with a 4oz front foot patch and a single layer of 4oz on the bottom. Boards over 6’4 are often glassed with heavier grades of fiberglass depending on the model or target wave size.
Options include: 6/4/4 or other, Team glassing, S-glass layers, carbon tail strips, carbon or fiberglass strips down the stringer, wider stringer, sanded gloss or gloss and polish. We also have multi-stringer options for our longboards. As an alternative option some customers choose a standard poly blank with epoxy resin. Option pricing can vary based on materials and size of board.
