Biofoam Quad Fish

I finally got to see my soybean shred sleds last weekend and they came out looking really good. Though plant-based surfboard blanks have a bit of catching up to do with conventional polyurethane blanks, I feel pretty good about supporting technology which uses domestically-grown organic soy. Oil resources are a finite commodity, and we're eventually going to have to look towards alternatives to oil in order to make surfboards. Imagine what will happen to price of oil and the price of polyurethane polymers when we begin to run out. The guys at Homeblown U.S. will have a pretty good head start on the competition...

I need one of those. Any sacrifice in the way it rides?

They're a little heavier, but at the speeds you're surfing on a quad the extra weight becomes negligible.

I'm glad I went with the clear wetsanded gloss on the new Pavel bonzer. That board looks great.

Whole wheat vs. white—indeed.

As far as I know, Wetsand isn't selling boards from their storefront online...
