    Anybody have any opinions about Santa Cruz Surfboards vs. the traditional foam boards? Any stories on how they ride or quality is appreciated.

    Santa Cruz boards used to made at the Surftech factory in Thailand . they then built their own factory in China . quality is good at both factorys , but i think they were getting pushed back in line compared to the other surftech brands so they went out on their own . some of the santa cruz boards come with fiberglass fins rather than the usual stock FCS fins . the Barney model is a real popular seller .
    epoxy " molded " boards are lighter and float more compared to the same dimensions poly board . the flex is different to . i think their best attribute is you dont get the heel pressures and glass shatters .
