Our ParaLite Technology uses a proprietary epoxy resin that is significantly stronger than standard polyester resin. We also use a high-density expanded polystyrene foam core (EPS), which results in a board that is both lighter and more buoyant than a traditional polyurethane (PU) surfboard. Finally, we use a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) composite stringer, which adds further strength to each board. The end result is that you get a lighter board that is significantly stronger than a traditional PU surfboard.
What does this mean for you? First, you’ll find that a lighter board is easier to maneuver both in and out of the water. Lugging your board to and from the beach won’t be such a chore, and catching waves will feel like a breeze. Also, gone are the days of spider cracks and frequent ding repair. A ParaLite Epoxy board is less likely to ding or crack, which ultimately means more time for you in the water. Finally, having a long-lasting board increases your likelihood of building an effective quiver.
