    Very good question. Ive been using cork on surfboards for about 2 years, and yes raw cork is easily picked apart, but I am infusing the cork with a layer of epoxy and fiberglass underneath. No way any cork will chip off if that happens. Also, cork will not break down in salt water and sun. Cork fishing rod handles have been used for hundreds of years.

    I've been playing around shaping a 4'10" bodyboard inspired creation myself. Paint will eventually be orange bottom/yellow deck tribute to the early '80s Mach 7-7 for anyone else unfortunate to be old enough to remember.

    Hoping with the channels it can be ridden with or without the fins. If you see any old guys spinning in circles next summer, that might just be me
