Liquid Shredder makes boards via five (5) different types of construction and materials:
A. Patented Peruvian Hybrid Soft: The Original Liquid Shredders… “Made in Peru Where Surfing & SUPing Were Invented!” These unique “soft” hybrid boards have a Patented aircraft grade vinyl skin and a Patented Dual Aluminum Stringer System. Liquid Shredder uses this Patented skin technology in all of our Hybrid Peruvian Surfboards, SUP Paddleboards, Skimboards and Bodyboards. All of the Hybrid Peruvian boards are tested in the some of the harshest conditions and largest surf in the world, the Pacific Coast of Peru. Then, boards are submitted for demo and competition at Surf, SUP and Bodyboard Contests in the USA & Peru. No model goes unpunished before it is released to the public. Each board style and shape is developed by our design Teams in both Peru and the USA. A true International effort by Carlos and Matias Eschecopar of Peru and Scott McClain, Rick Varonfakis and Rick “Ironman” Anson of the USA. We’re so confident in this technology, these boards carry a 1 Year Warranty. See it Here!
B. Foam Special Edition “Foamie” Soft Boards: The Liquid Shredder “Entry Level” heat laminated boards. Liquid Shredder’s USA Technical Staff, headed by founder, Scott McClain designs each FSE Surfboard, SUP Paddleboard, Bodyboard and Skimboard to exacting specifications. Drawing on several lifetimes of watersports experience the USA Team not only designs but established a rigorous quality assurance program for each category of board. The FSE surfboard line sports fin seals that help reduce water intrusion, a minimum of two waterproofed wooden stringers and a third fiberglass in 8ft & 9ft models. From 2016 forward all FSE bodyboards are made with high denisty Expanded Polypropylene cores, EPE soft deck, HDPE slick bottom and Fiberglass stringer. Our FSE LX SUP Paddleboard has EPS Core, HDPE slick bottom, dual water proofed wood stringer, Plus, two layers of Fiberglass under the soft deck with a Gore-tex pressure venting system.
C. Epoxy/Fiberglass: Liquid Shredde’s Inca Series Epoxy Fiberglass boards are made to the same exacting desings, shpaes and quality as the rest of the line. All facets are managed and controlled by the USA Team of lifelong watermen. Each Epoxy/Fiberglass SUP and Surfboard has two (2) layers of 6oz glass plus reinforcement of the rails, nose and tail. Every Epoxy SUP has a full Shred-Comfort deck pad and the automatic Gore-Tex air pressure equalization system made famous on the original Peruvian Hybrids. All Liquid Shredder Epoxy/Fiberglass SUPs and Surfboards are equipped with various configurations of industry standard “FCS Compatible” fin systems.
D. Rotomold Plastic/EPS foam: Made in the USA! Our 12ft Shred-HD is made like a plastic kayak but with and EPS foam core. The deck and bottom are both flat, unlike hollow plastic , so called, SUPs. The fin is a standard, removable 8″ longboard style in a universal fin box. The full Shred-Comfort deck pad is full anti-slip. It uses the famous Gore-tex venting system to equalize pressure.
E. Inflatable SUPs: Are constructed using military grade materials that are designed to withstand a lot of abuse. Unlike traditional rigid fiberglass or epoxy paddle boards, that are susceptible to dings, cracks, and other damage, inflatables are ding-resistant and virtually indestructible. They deflate for easy transportation and are softer if they bump into you or if you fall on them. Traditional SUPs provide higher performance than inflatables.
