Almond's Guide to: Surfboard Resin Tints

A resin tint is a beautiful way to add color to your surfboard, while accentuating the layers of foam, fiberglass, and wood that make up your board.

Unlike paint, a tint doesn't cover up—it magnifies what is already there.

Rose-tinted glasses can help you have a more optimistic outlook on the day, and resin-tinted fiberglass can really draw the beauty and subtlety out of your favorite custom surfboard.

For a surfboard laminator, a perfectly executed tint is a sign of mastery of his craft.

Every great glass job starts with a great lamination.  And every great resin tint starts by hand-mixing the desired color in a cup—a process that is more art than science.

The art of applying a resin tint to a surfboard is just that—an art.  And it's the go-to way to add color to any of our custom surfboard models
