PRIMITEK Epoxy Construction is HERE!
M/SF/T & SURFTECH US Introduce PRIMITEK
Whether you’re a primitivist like Gauguin or a minimalist like Mies Van der Rohe, we know you believe the essence of a thing is its true value, and that kitsch accoutrement is for the birds. You know that real creative expression happens on the wave, and what you need is great design and purist performance.
Bienvenu à (Welcome to) PRIMITEK.
For nearly 2 years M/SF/T have been developing an EPS/ Epoxy construction with the product engineers at SURFTECH US in California. The construction possesses all the great benefits of highly technical eps/ epoxy construction (strength, flex, lightness, liveliness) but in a stripped back minimal aesthetic, with the normal graphic expression you'd come to expect from M/SF/T.
'We wanted the pinnacle of technical eps/ epoxy construction, but we didn't want the taping, inlays, laps, carbon fibre busyness that usually comes with construction in this space. So Primitek is stripped right back, but no expense has been spared on the foam, cloth and resin we have used to make the boards perform and last.'
- Dave Howell, founder/ shaper.
By keeping the construction simple we’ve found that boards built in Primitek perform as an extension of surfers’ instincts. Intuitively connecting your imagination and ability in a creative collision of a primal past and an ethereal future. Primitek is the blank slate and firm foundation for you to build your masterpiece.
HIGH DENSITY EPS CORE - lively response that distributes vibration equally for predictability.
CLEAR HD-EPOXY RESIN - a resin system with high thermo-mechanical performances.
1 x LAYER OF E-GLASS - strong and resistant to denting.
1 x LAYER OF BIAX GLASS - provides multi-direction strength while maintaining a lively feel.
Team demo-gods like Mitch Coleborn are hooked. He's calling it the "best epoxy construction he has ever ridden"...
