Our main goal is to help customers succeed with their projects. With some that may mean getting the right materials, with others it can be getting the right tip or guidance in choosing the right technique. We have noticed with educational users that there is often a great desire on the part of the teacher to do composite projects. The students want to do them because they are cool, look great, and are contemporary. Educators recognize that their students become energized and learn better when they are able to do the projects that excite them.
The challenge becomes in getting the right information and materials so that the project is carried off properly, safely, and successfully. Understandably when working with students their skill levels are often eclipsed by their imagination, which just means that the more pitfalls that can be taken out of the equation the higher the chances for success.
We get hundreds of enquiries a year from students across the nation that are working on various projects. Some times they are for their senior projects, sometimes it is a shop class project and sometimes it is just for fun. Due to the interest that we’ve seen from students and educators we have developed a variety of kits to cover some of the more popular projects. These kits include wakeboards/kiteboards, skimboards, surfboards, paddleboards, and our flagship kit, longboard skateboards.
Please keep in mind that these are just our most popular requests, if you have a composites project that you are working on and need technical advice or materials, we’re more than happy to help.
