Two ASTM tests were selected to test for the expected modes of failure in our board. Knowing that the worst failures of the board could either fail from the delamination of the fiber or from brittle fracture, we tested both of these. ASTM D2344M and ASTM D7264M were the two tests we used to test laminate strength and flexural strength, respectively. Each combination of layup was tested with at least 5 samples. This gave 45 samples for each test and 90 samples total. This was done in order to ensure a significance in the [http://www.appropedia.org/File:Compiled_Data_Results.xlsx results of the testing].
After the testing was competed, the data was analyzed through MINITAB, a statistical analysis software.

Ease of manufacture was decided upon while pressing the samples for testing and while searching for materials in large enough blocks for a paddleboard
