Handmade in the USA Built in and shipped from Apex’s factory in Largo, FL Apex’s Vacuum Bag Technology is used to create every Apex Board. It is an advanced construction process used to maximize strength and eliminate weight. The theory behind the technology is to pack as much fiber into the board and remove as much resin as possible. The board’s fiberglass material is compacted with three to four tons of force. Meanwhile, dedicated vacuum channels extract excess resin directly from the board during the curing process. This process is so effective that the board can have additional fiber reinforcement without any weight penalty. This is how APEX boards are the strongest and the lightest. REINFORCED CONSTRUCTION Along with Vacuum Technology we use the HIGHEST QUAILTY material including Woven E-glass in every Apex skimboard. We use the best foam, resins, pigments, etc. All of our boards are designed to take a beating. Our RAIL REINFORCEMENT features a wrapped and overlapped rail design with no staples. Our REINFORCED NOSE & TAIL further protects it from damage. This again, sets the APEX LINE of SKIMBOARDS apart from the rest.
