    For what it's worth...

    I remember a really good surfer from the OCMD area previously mentioning that he was breaking a lot of Plus One boards. He changed over to Surf Prescriptions and reported back having less problems.

    Yes, his name was vince. He rode for Malibu. He moved out to Newport Beach a couple of years ago. But he did tell me how sick surf prescriptions were.

    glassing schedule mostly and things like stringer material, and rail shape relate more to a boards flexural strength (snapping resistance). heavier glass or boxier rails will def make the board more resistant to snapping but you wint like the feel.

    There are supposedly types of 4 oz. glass (warp bias) that will not increase the overal weight of a board, but will make it harder to break because it contains more fibers running lengthwise. Heres how onw manufacturer explains it:

    "Warp Bias Fiberglass - contains more yarn in the warp (length) direction for the purpose of added stiffness and buckling resistance"

    Thanks for the info. Good to know.
