I use Nylextra Hybrid Fiberglass imported from Sanded Australia. After testing it out on a few of my personal boards, I can say it is very strong and does not add any extra weight. I usually laminate my personal boards with just a single layer of 4 oz. cloth on the deck and I’ve noticed with using the Nylextra Hybrid cloth, especially the Basalt Hybrid, along with epoxy resin, my boards do not get deck pressures as easily and still has a natural flex and feel. Stay tuned for some other projects I am working on using Nylextra. Mahalo to John at Sanded Australia!

Keith非常熱衷於鑽研任何有關衝浪與製板的事物上,在2016年他發現澳洲新研發出訴求更強韌的玻纖布時,便迫不及待的引進回台,當然,馬上實驗在自己的板上做測試。
 
對於喜歡追求速度感與大動作的Keith,輕、薄,有速度的板型一直都是他的首選,所以當他在製作自己的板時,為了達到輕量化,板面通常只包一層4oz的玻纖布,,和只包覆一層Epoxy(環氧樹脂),但在踩踏加速的壓力導致板面容易凹陷…然而在測試新的玻纖布時,Keith發現,這項新研發的玻纖布完全符合他理想中;輕量化更兼具最重要的”強化”功能,又十分的有韌性,解決了板面易凹陷的問題!
 
在未來,Keith將會持續發掘研究更多更新更好的素材原料,製作出最佳的衝浪板,來呈現給大家!

Nylextra Hybrid is an Australian made surfboard skin with Nylextra fibre running vertically (length ways) through E glass fibreglass.  This helps minimise shattering and strengthens against impacts on the board.

Hybrid Fabrics are reinforcements that combine two or more different fibres in a common matrix, expanding the range of properties that can be achieved.

Nylextra Hybrid cloth enhances the effective properties of surfboards giving strengthen without reducing the natural flex performance of a board.
