Surfboard manufacturing supplier Sanded Australia has developed a thermal bonded non-woven carbon tape to be used in the construction of surfboards. And it’s made in Australia.
Composite rail tapes have become an important part of surfboard construction. With the rise of EPS/Epoxy surfboards, carbon rail and stringers, tapes have become more function over fashion, as they help with the flex/strength performance of the surfboard.
“We are not the first to make this product for surfboards, but we are the first to get it manufactured here in Australia,” notes John Dowse, owner of Sanded Australia.
