Instead of using standard fiberglass cloth in the glassing process, a combination of S-glass and a specialty woven unidirectional carbon stringer matrix is employed. This board layup exhibits increased / enhanced flex characteristic; while the structural integrity of the board’s break strength is kept intact with use of strategic carbon reinforcement
1 >> proxy epoxy composite :::
High Impact Hybrid Foam Core // [a lightweight (lighter than teamlite Proxy epoxy) foam that yields a higher compression strength and has very limited water absorption if dinged]
2 >> S-Glass :::
S-glass is the highest-grade fiberglass available and will make any board significantly stronger. It is available in 4oz. and 6oz.
3 >> Hybrid/Epoxy resins :::
engineered for maximum break strength, as well as a “loaded” rebound response characteristic, we use a unique blend of resins that yields an ultra-white uv stabilized aesthetic
RIDICULITE – fright-light, crazy flex, ultimate performance, about twice as strong as a poly
TEAMLITE – ultralight, crazy flex, ultimate performance, 2-3 x stronger than a poly
MIDDLEWEIGHT – best strength to weight ratio, 3-5+ x stronger than a poly
SUPER-DUTY – indestructo, 5+ x stronger than pretty much any board out there
Care for your Proxy surfboard simply consists of keeping it watertight; ie. If you do get a ding, just allow it to dry out and then repair it with epoxy resin specifically made for surfboard repair; or if you take it to a shop to repair, make sure you let them know to use epoxy resin. That’s it. Also, use the same common sense care you would for a polyester board, just don’t leave it laying in the sun. If you have any questions, let us know.
“You can feel it bending into the face of the wave when you push through turns and it has so much thwang in the lip. Perfect for all kinds of different waves as an everyday board.” – Nick Rozsa
