There's a fair amount of energy stored through turns with the Resin-X lamination, and you can definitely feel a bit more spring out of your bottom turn.

On the downside, Resin-X is difficult to laminate due to the very short working time, and the Resin-X hotcoats are very hard so it's more work for the sander. This adds a lot of extra cost to the production of these boards. It's unlikely I'll take any new orders for Resin-X until the formula becomes more worker-friendly.

is resin-x a more eco-friendly resin like epoxy? seems like a step in the right direction from what I've been hearing..

It's urethane-based and has zero VOCs if you don't cut it with styrene.

Resin-X has a killer "twang" effect that launches you out of turns. It is also very durable. It is pricey and difficult to work with but will eventually find a niche in the surfboard industry. This board is a chance to see the band first before they get famous.
