Carbon fiber materials can be used in sporting goods. This is no longer a rare thing. Surfing is a popular seaside sport. For surfers, carbon fiber surfboards are the best choice! The length of the surfboard is between 1.5  2.7 meters, the width is about 0.6 meters, and the thickness is about 7 centimeters. The board is light and stable, with a narrow front and rear ends. The surfboard can be made of fiberglass, plastic, carbon fiber, etc. The athletes use ultra-high balance techniques to control the surfboard and the waves. Surfing is a water sport in which athletes stand on surfboards or use the webs, seesaws, inflatable rubber mats, rowing boats, kayaks, etc. to drive the waves. As the saying goes, “Good horse with good saddle” is a good material for surfers.

Carbon fiber is mainly a kind of special fiber composed of carbon elements, and its carbon content varies with different types, generally more than 90%. Carbon fiber has the characteristics of general carbon materials, such as high-temperature resistance, abrasion resistance, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance, but unlike ordinary carbon materials, its shape is significantly anisotropic, soft, and can be processed into various The fabric exhibits high strength along the fiber axis direction and the like. Carbon fiber has a small specific gravity and therefore has high specific strength.

Carbon fiber is a synthetic chemical fiber that does not melt during heat treatment due to its high carbon content and is refined by heat-stable oxidation treatment, carbonization treatment, and graphitization.

The main use of carbon fiber is to compound with a matrix such as resin, metal or ceramic to form a structural material. The carbon fiber reinforced epoxy resin composite material has the highest specific strength and specific modulus and is the highest among the existing structural materials. In areas where strict requirements such as strength, stiffness, weight, and fatigue characteristics are required, carbon fiber composite materials are advantageous in applications where high temperature and high chemical stability are required.

What are the advantages of carbon fiber surfboards?

  1. Lightweight. The weight of carbon fiber is one-fourth that of steel, which is lighter than glass fiber. The average glass fiber surfboard has about 15 kilograms. People who go to the beach to play naturally want a lighter weight to be better. The carbon fiber surfboard solves this problem well. problem.

  2. High strength. The strength of carbon fiber is four times that of steel. It is well known that the impact of sea waves is very large. If the strength of the surfboard is too low, once it is damaged by force, it will not only be able to enjoy the fun of sports but also seriously threaten people’s personal safety.

  3. Corrosion resistant. In addition to oxygen and hydrogen, seawater has chemical factors such as Cl, Na, Mg, S, Ca, K, and Br, which are alkaline. If the surfboard is soaked in seawater for a long time, it will be corroded beyond recognition. Carbon fiber has stable chemical properties, acid and alkali resistance, corrosion resistance, aging resistance, and long service life.

  4. Balance is good. Surfing in the sea, its own driving skills are essential, and the balance of the surfboard is also important. Carbon fiber has strong seismic resistance and good balance performance. People stand on it and there is little difference between standing on the ground.

  5. Ingenious design. Customized carbon fiber surfboards can be designed in a variety of styles to meet the needs of different users. For example, folding, combination, longboard, shortboard, Qiang version, soft board, floating board, paddle board, etc.
