Background

The Custom Stand Up Paddleboard project is part of Michigan Technological University's BoardSport Technologies Enterprise. It is a senior capstone project that aims to develop a cheap and open source method for manufacturing top of the line paddleboards.

Materials

Epoxy

Epoxy was chosen as a layer of Solarez epoxy between foam and fiber. This layer will give a more resilient layer to help with adhesion. Solarez epoxy does not harden fully, but remains a tacky epoxy to help give these properties. A layer of Super Sap INF from Entropy Resins was used for the outer layer. This will provide the hard shell needed for the board, and it will help increase overall strength. Both of these epoxies
