Behind The Curtain with Darren Handley & EpoxiCORE

by DHD Surf

A behind the scenes into how EpoxiCORE was conceived and brought to market with Darren Handley.

Over thirty years of designing and shaping DHD surfboards has led Darren Handley to create a board that brings together the positive attributes of both traditional fibreglass and epoxy construction. The development team embraced the project as we explored new technology, design and manufacturing techniques.
