Walked into a local shop down here in Florida and stumbled upon this gem of a board.
Shop worker noticed me checking out the board and when she asked if I needed any help I asked her what the deal was with the board and if it was on sale due to the obvious blemishes. She started to explain to me that the board was most likely intentionally done like that to give it a "rustic" type look. Manager heard what was going on and confirmed the board was jacked up. he offered me 25 dollars off...

Can some one identify what exactly happened with this board?

Over Sanded?


Rumour is that Slater has a full-size tattoo of himself over his entire body

oversanded and/or somewhere the cloth didnt saturate.

eps + the color blue seem to always show that more than any other combo.

Yah thats what I was thinking also. I'm kinda fed up with the company for other reasons but I wanted to get a second opinion before I put the them on blast for trying to sell this board at almost full price.

Would the board even be worth it if say hypothetically I did buy it for what I consider to be a good deal??

i guarantee you've had a million clear white boards with worse burn throughs that you either either didnt notice or were taken care of with a rattle can of clear coat.

Open weave seeps moisture. If there's an intact layer below the top layer then it's no big deal, but sometimes the sand-throughs go into the bottom layer.

The reason for the oversanding might be related to the laps from the bottom lam (which on shortboards is normally done first) not getting knocked down enough prior to the deck lam going over it, thus raising a lip at the lapline that gets sanded off in order to bring the deck flush. They're sanding through the deck lamination to level out the bump.

It is a real common thing and they're right when they say that some of your clear boards have also been oversanded. Sometimes these get covered with a clear coat or a sealer, but with sanded finishes they usually just leave it.

One way to check for sand throughs in the future is to hold the board up horizonatally to a light source like a shop window or even an overhead light and look across the deck at a slight angle so you can see the finish. Any sand throughs will show up as a weave whereas the areas that still have resin over them will look "sanded".

For my personal boards I actually laminate the deck first and bring the bottom lap onto the deck with a cutlap. I usually don't even sand the deck except with a few passes of 220 to knock down any bumps. I sand my rails to the lapline by hand, using long strokes from end-to-end. You're not surfing the deck - you're covering it with wax so the finish doesn't matter. Leaving the deck "raw" and undisturbed actually makes it a little stronger anyway.

There is no way I would put my logo on a board that looked like that and put it in a shop. I'd ride it myself or give it away.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

What's the likelihood this wasn't glassed in house by whoever shaper was?

Is quality control better or worse with the inhouse guys?

More importantly what is the resale on something looking like that?

I wouldn't throw more than $200 at it if I saw it on craigslist.

$25 off is a joke unless that brings it equal to the cost of it in materials.

That board is probably magic.
