The deck patches are the way Wade likes to reinforce really light glassing. I usually ask for Kevlar or carbon on the heel and toe edges of the tail but Wade had the glasser add drywall tape. He said it adds some strength in those areas at low cost. You can see it on the green board and up close on the twin. Wade rides pro style glassing himself and is always looking to add some durability without sacrificing performance.love the second board!! Interesting deck patches, is that common in HI? Never seen that focused patching over here.
got one at 6'2" x 19 x 2 9/16 @ 30.65L FCS2 tri-quad. Looks like a wave catching machine, have yet to ride it. Much thicker in the rail than my Ghost at the same measure, good thing I got it for a barrel board. Looks like it could be a good HP design also, would go a bit thinner in that case.I went a little thinner at 2.5
