Composite Skimboards

Composite skim boards are also another fun and easy project for students.  Skim boards are usually flat bottomed and usually have a flat deck.  The rail shape is simple just round over the top rail with a router (or shape it by hand) and glass the board.

Skimboard Materials and Kit

Skim boards use the same core material as wake boards, Divinycell H-80 which is a PVC structural foam.  The reason for using Divinycell is that it has high compression and shear strengths, unlike Styrofoam or urethane foams.  This is important in a skimboard because it is going to see a lot of abuse.

Skim Board Kits include:

  • 1 piece Divinycell H-80 55” x 24” x  ”PVC foam
  • 6 yards 5.6oz x 30” e-glass cloth
  • 3 quart Resin Research epoxy kit
  • Plastic sqeegees
  • Mixing cups and mixing sticks
  • Kit Part Number: A19-SKIM Price $130.71
