FeatherCore Stand Up Paddle Boards
C4 Waterman’s new FeatherCore Composite line of SUPs is based on the rigorous refinement of the foam sandwich/composite structures to find the construction
that best suits the unique needs of the next generation of high- performance stand-up paddleboards.
Our testing has found that deck and bottom wood veneer laminates provide the lightest, strongest, least expensive ‘skin’ to complement our featherlight
EPS-cored SUPs. These very thin veneer sheets are sandwiched between successive layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin and then pressure molded around the
EPS core. This creates a sort of monocoque fuselage, much like an aircraft, in which the skin of the surfboard in effect becomes the stringer or stiffener.
We have also changed the finish on our new range of boards to a classic gloss resin surfboard-style finish—no more chipping!
