Surftech versus SouthPoint epoxy

Anyone have experience with comparing the Surftech boards with the SouthPoint 3 phase epoxy boards?

Not interested in individual boards, just general construction, weight, durability etc.

Input is much appreciated.
Thanks

I have a surftech(ST) shortboard and know someone with a southpoint(SP) longboard. I would say that the SP is more durable but alot heavier than ST longboards and wouldn,t perform as well as the ST, good for learners. Although you can still damage the ST they are pretty tough compared to foam/fibreglass boards.

Indeed same strenghts surfboards, but the Surftech boards are lighter than the SouthPoint  surfboards.

FireWire makes very light boards, but i don't know how strong those  are.

At first it seemed ok, Southpoint that is, a little heavy but was good in the water.  But don't go there!  Get a get surfboard maker to make you a real surfboard.  My Southpoint buckeled in medium sized north shore surf here in maui.  It didn't snap but buckeled in a strange way not riddable anymore.  Machine made should offer a warranty but no, it was practically brand new too.  Epoxy is over rated I am back on an awesome handmade board, way better.  Aloha
