I notice you fiberglass the outside of the SUP but not the inside. I know it would be difficult to do but wouldn't it provide greater strength if you hit a rock or something while out paddling? Has this topic been discussed on any SUP Builders Forums?

You can choose to fiberglass the inside of the board but I chose not to because of the difficulty as well as the added weight. The board is heavy enough as it is and the extra weight would really make it difficult to carry. One thing we noticed was that the board surface will become slightly uneven over time and I think it is because the strips absorb moisture on their untreated inner surface. There are no leaks and we took great care not to get any moisture inside while paddling, so I think the moisture comes from condensation.
