EPS x CARBON x MESH COLOR x BIOBASED EPOXY
made in EUROPE
“For us every detail counts, so we work hard to make the SMARTech, the best epoxy board in the world”
The most reactive and ‘alive’ board you can have. Response and pop for those who want to have extra bite and craziness in their surfing.
It makes it easy for vertical turns and accelerations … especially for kids…
Didier Piter, Hurley Surf Center – Hossegor
The SMARTECH was designed to get the best out of the Eps and epoxy resin. The board is lighter, more resistant and faster – the ideal combination. For us every detail counts and we worked hard to make the SMARTECH, the best epoxy surfboard in the world!
SMARTECH TECHNOLOGY consists of high density EPS with a carbon stringer and epoxy resin. We removed the wood stringer and used carbon instead as a reinforcement, exactly where more resistance and hardness is needed. Three different fiberglass reinforcements going in 6 directions for more flex and strength than traditional eps constructions. The unique layering of materials provides pop and a really responsive shortboard.
Although the board is more resistant than a PU board, is not indestructible. You shouldn’t let it be exposed to the sun for too long or keep it in high temperatures. In case of a ding the board must be repaired with and only epoxy resin.
WHERE IS MADE ?
We developed and create the SMARTECH in our factory (not overseas), so we are happy to make you custom sizes.
Made in Portugal, with love!

“BIOBASED Epoxy Resin”
THE MOLECULE – It’s what you make of it.
Biobased resin makes thermoset epoxy systems for a new generation of products. Products that not only perform, but also take a crucial step towards lowering our impact on the environment.
MAKE THINGS CLEANER
Reduce your carbon footprint. By employing green chemistry techniques that require less energy and produce less harmful byproducts, we reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from production of our resins by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies. Using today’s modern Life Cycle Analysis techniques we can demonstrate how our resins can help your products reduce their environmental impact.
SUSTAINABILITY BY SHARED BIO MASS PIPELINE
Not all carbon is created equal. We replace petroleum based carbon with renewable plant-based carbon. The raw materials going into our resins are co-products or waste products of other industrially important processes. These materials do not compete with food sources or displace food-based agriculture. Using an international standard method of radio carbon dating, we verify the renewable content of the resins so you know exactly where they come from.
F@@k !!! I SURFED TODAY AND GOT SOME SICK ONES
THE BOARD GOES REALLY GOOD, IT FLIES! – Travis Logie
Mesh color is a great reinforcement for surfboards. It’s made with a blend of nylon, and unlike other reinforcement strips, it has no carbon fibre. It is flexible and allows the board’s natural flex patterns to remain.
