Hi Allyoz,We need to answer the questions properly and clarify some of the comments above .I am owner of FILF Surf Co in Brighton and one of the largest suppliers of resin8 boards in europe and have been working with R8 SINCE DAY 1 . We have only ever had a couple of Resin8 boards snapped in 6 years of selling them and that was during research and development period right at the beginning when they were testing different blanks and resins to get there product perfect and all the boards with issues were kindly replaced,this is obviously the time when this guy had a problem,either that or he needs to learn a thing or two;since then we have never had one bad bit of feedback.
Resin8 Surfboards have gone through years of testing different materials and have spent a lot of time and money perfecting their product, yes carbon was used for a while but was found to be too stiff ,the boards now are better and stronger than ever and certainly not mass produced moulded boards,they go through many stages of hand finishing from skilled craftsmen,this is a high tech product and nothing is left to chance.
The new Tokoro and Sam Egan Models are sick, check them out you will be blown away!!These boards are finished to the same standard if not better than any custom PU board.They have a big range of shapes to suit most surfers and are even working on custom orders.
If you want to argue this comment i suggest you ask the likes of Joss Ash,Johnny Fryer,Tom Lowe, loads of hardcore Hawaiians and now Mick Fanning who love the strenghth,performance and feel of the boards.They ride them because they want to.
I myself have a few Resin8 Boards,one of which i have had for over 3 years and have taken it on many trips and its still as light and still goes as good as the day i got it,its 1 of my magic boards and will never get rid of it.
As far as strength goes,they are stronger than any other Performance epoxy boards on the market today and are far better quality than other larger Brands.
I hope this answers the few Questions properly.
