SOLAREZ - Your professional in surfboard repair kits.
In 1985, Wahoo International (manufacturer of Solarez®, LifeSled® and Bullyboard®) began manufacturing repair kits composite surfboards and bodyboards. We used "unconventional" materials and processes such as UV curing resins, composite structures and vacuum packaging techniques. We saw that UV curing was a cleaner technology and ideal for on-site repair. We also knew it was better for production, the environment and the economy, but it would be an uphill battle to get existing manufacturers to change. The first Solarez polyester filler board repair was a hit worldwide. We continued to make a small number of boards and tried to introduce the techniques to the industry.
