This one is for me. 6'6'' wood bottom, wood cork wood rails, glassed with Entropy bio resin, and shaped out of a recycled blank. I tried cork in the rails this time. I want to see if their is any difference in flex. I have seen Paul Jensen and Danny Hess's wood boards using cork on the rails. They look really good. I don't think cork is much lighter, if any lighter than the wood I use, but I think it will be interesting to see how impact compression reacts from rail dings.


  1. I think one of the problems of cork is that cork has manny "micro holes" and absorves more resin than wood. Great job congrats.

  2. what a beauty! does the wood on the bottom have any effect on the ride?

  3. I do belive the wood adds to forward momentum. Wood eems to drive through white wash sections better than foam. I also think the wood has good flex charcteristics. It shoots out of turns a little more. I pasted the whole board before laminating. Once laminating I did have to be careful to make sure the cork did not have any air, but it wasn't much of a problem.

    Thanks for the comments,

  4. Awesome board, Jon. It's great how you're experimenting with different material construction including wood, eco-foam, etc...
