In 1985, Wahoo International (makers of Solarez®, LifeSled® and Bullyboard®) began, making composite surfboards and bodyboards. We utilized “unconventional” materials and methods like UV curing resins, composite structures and vacuum bagging techniques. We saw that UV curing was a cleaner technology and was ideal for field repair. We also knew it was better for manufacturing, the environment and the economy but it would be an uphill battle convincing the existing manufacturers to change. The first Solarez polyester putty field repair was a smash worldwide. We continued manufacturing a small ammount of boards and sought to introduce the techniques to the industry.
