Foam pipe insulation for the rails, 1" XPS sheet foam insulation from HD, cut to fit the deck and bottom.
\nDON'T TOUCH THE VENT PLUG. Just make sure it's clear of debris (sand, salt crust, wax...) and cut a hole in the sheet foam over the vent plug.
\nMitchell... you're one funny f'er, brother! That had me laughing at my desk!
\nMikey... I had a Sunova Nitro for several months, and that board absolutely rocks! Amazing tech. Made me wish I was a better surfer, cause that thing could do stuff way beyond my ability.

Pipe foam, bubble wrap, and forget about any factory support should your beautiful Sunova suffer a delam... It will in no way be any fault of the factory, they will just leave you HANGing MAN....
Removing the vent plug will only allow the 1lb eps to fully breath while minimizing the chance that the lamination would pull from the foam, just make sure the plug is back in before you splash...

Traveling with a Firewire
I am going to Panama this summer and want to bring my Sunova Nitro with me. Its construction is identical to a Firewire--1lb eps foam, balsa rails, balsa deck, pressure valve. Is there anything special I should know about packing it for the trip and handling the board in the tropics.
My flight is Baltimore to Miami, Miami to Panama City, and then a 2hr shuttle from Panama City to the hotel.
I avoided the Angry Beavers thread on purpose, out of fear that radical feminists will hijack it and shoot it all to smithereens.
