Anyone wants a sheet of dow?

Post by shred2kook » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:07 pm

Hi Folks,

Just got a sheet of dow about 3/4" thick and maybe 8X5 feet long...a little beat up on a one side but pretty clean overall so far.

NOt sure if it's skim material, but hey could be fun to experiment something with it, anyway if anyone is interested let me know, it sits at my work and is gona be disposed of sometimes soon...

Haha nice post... About 9 years ago, the very first foam skimboard I made was a 1" thick blue Dow styrofoam core which was i think 2lb density. It was one of my favorite boards but didnt hold up very long. very light material though. similar to what some surfboards are made out of.

no doubt pile driver but the rest of the clip isnt to bad. It could only be understood if i could speak a few words of caution when attempting the beast! aka the triple quardrouple over head day, o yes it was the mack fat rat cat daddy day of them all(swears all the time)! bla blah blah hahah.

Yup we're coming over for a beer!!! Plus I have some home brew ready now...:)

Don't worry I know how rough this coast gets, it doesn't need to be that big to be impressive...I mean any head high shorebreak is a killer in this region, water is liquid steel around here...

the lost sheep shall find its sheppard;

JUst talking about a big winter day at Montara...I was pretty curious as I almost never checked the beach at high tide in the winter before I got back to skimming.

I did eat a lot of shit dick dragging big MOntara...I'm over it nowadays, but Heinz skimmed it so that should be pretty juicey
