The shaper uses tools like a planer, sandpaper and screens to take down the foam to its final form by smoothing out the edges and defining the outline as well as ensuring the evenness of the rails.
The lamination of a surfboard combines both resin and fiberglass cloth to seal the foam and create strength. The surfboards are laminated with four- or six-ounce thick fiberglass cloth using laminating resin (polyester resin without the addition of wax solution). First, the cloth is cut to size and laid over the foam. Then, resin is applied with a squeegee to evenly distribute and saturate the resin in the cloth.
The sanding process starts with a final coat of resin mixed with sanding solution, which enables sanding. The surfboard is then sanded to remove all rough edges that are left behind by the fiberglass process until the board has a smooth and regular surface. One step is missing until the surfboard can go into the water: It has to cure up to two weeks to gain full resistence. Therefor the board should be positioned on a leveled surface at a uniform temperature.
