It was a surflight, I ordered direct from their factory in Waialua. The Core is solid but it doesn't go from the tip to the tail, it goes about 90% of the board. Enough of the tip for it to get ripped off. Next time you surf it, squeeze the nose and you can tell where it stops.

I have a bunch maybe three
Very hi-tech
original concocted by Greg's crazy shaper friend Mike Croteau
Currently run by Jim Richardson and Jeff Johnson both who used to shape for T&C when they had an insane stable of shapers.
Jim is a professor at the school of business at UH

The old design was a unidirectional carbon wrapped core of blue XPS foam shaped in the form of a car spring where the thickness, length and width controlled the amount of flex. Over this was glued polyethylene foam often used in the packing of electronics.
These blanks are then somehow shaped and covered with rubber/plastic spray coating to seal the board.

The current design uses the same material that they use on the bottom of the wavestorms and new boogie boards which is supposed to be very fast the deck still have a soft skin but the bottoms are harder and much slippier. The cores are now eps versus xps because of the delamming issues with XPS.

Its everything Tom Morey said we'd need in a surfboard in the 70's before he invented the boogie. I still have that surfer magazine article which introduce his soft surfboard and air injected surfboard ideas with lenny. Tom and Jim are still heroes of mine. Croteau would have been another had I heard of him back then, but some of his shapes are insane.

given the thread subject line, I was really expecting this to be about some kind of edible shrug

Well I finally found a used one off of craigslist hawaii. Its the new epoxy lay up different than that guys whos nose got busted off. This one is eps core with epoxy top and bottom and the skin vacuumed to it. Parabolic stringers. Skin is soft and slick but nothing like a boogie. This skin is dull finish and is soft and pushes in then you can feel the glass under it. Different beast. These new ones are much better imho. Neva sellin this one.

^^^That description of the skin is old. ^^^^^
-
They don't use bodyboard skin.
The skin is more like vinyl and it has a soft feel to it.
Like they said, it's like a steering wheel soft but with an epoxy surfboard inside.
