Identifying surf boat Construction

Post by paddletastic2 » Wed Aug 27, 2014 8:50 pm

I've bought a second hand Neutron. How do I identify which construction it is? Any tips gratefully received.

Photos would be good but, from memory:

Standard - carbon kevlar hull, glass deck

Superlight - carbon kevlar hull & deck

Xtec - same as superlight but with foam core in the hull

Cyrstec (sp?) - like xtec but carbon instead of carbon/kevlar

Malcolm? That about right?

Thanks but I couldn't tell you from looking at it what the construction is! Will try and get some pictures up.

You'll need some close up photos of the inside of the hull and deck to help identify.
In that pic it looks like kevlar weave on the hull so probably that. Just phone Mega and they'll help you to identify what its made from.

If its carbon kevlar on the deck as well its a superlite, unless it has a clear c/kevlar hull on the outside , in which case its an tech
