I know its probably been done but I'll ask anyway........I have never gone down the EPS epoxy road but am interested in having a go...I was thinking of getting the same dims as my current twin to see how it goes.

Interested in all thoughts.

As Dave said a lot of difference in construction = a big difference feel / performance., I ridden Firewires since inception, a number of true Pox's along with PU boards over the last 20 odd years and currently riding an EPS board Dave made / shaped for me which has been a source of great joy the board rips (note disclaimer big fan / supporter of Dave).

All the EPS ones using different construction methods have been quite different and would suggest trying to find some one who is using a broad made of the same method you might have in mind.

Some of the Pox boards feel wise IMHO were rubbish particualary over say 4 to 5ft but a lot of the others were quite good to excellent.

Dave is not plugging it but I will, he has just started using a new hi tech method for EPS that had me dibbling, thinking shapes, dreaming over it this week he also has a demo board or two to try out might be worth a look at (Katana Surf, 8/15 Carbon Ct, Osborne Park WA 6017).

The search is never ending good luck
