Choosing a properly sized skimboard is critical to consumer satisfaction. That’s why choosing the best stick you could ever get and also depending on your weight, height and athletic skills. There are different types of board and here some of varieties of a board.

 

Foamie is the first stick you will hold on your hand, this is the basic board for the beginners because of its wide and stable speed. Unlike other advance/pro boards, this one is affordable and a little wide board, perfect for the newbies.

 

 

E-GLASS is the most common fiber reinforcement used in the composites world. It is popular because it offers very good performance for how much it costs. It is not as strong or stiff as the higher priced Sglass and Carbon, but is still a high quality material. Our Eglass boards are constructed exactly like the high end Sglass and Carbon but with this more inexpensive material. They are also glassed a little heavier to compensate for some of the loss of strength and stiffness.

 

S-GLASS stands for structural fiberglass. It is 30% stronger than regular fiberglass and about 15% stiffer. It also costs more than twice as much! But when you are buying a high end product it is important to pay a little extra for the things that will make it last. Our S-Glass skimboards have multiple layers of S-Glass on each side. This makes the board a little stronger than an eglass board of the same weight and a little bit stiffer too.

 

DOUBLE CARBON FIBER – Carbon Fiber is practically synonymous with top of the line in any industry. This fabric is highly coveted in skimboards for its extreme strength and stiffness. Carbon fiber fabrics are about twice as strong and stiff as E-Glass. Boards made with this material come out a little stronger, a little lighter and a whole lot stiffer than S-Glass boards.
