The Lagos is an all-epoxy, super light board. That’s a good question that I think a lot of people overlook when shopping around for their first board, so good looking out. In addition to the Lagos being a lot lighter than a glass board, it is also way stronger which is an important consideration if you plan on being bad for a while (kidding). Overall, I recommend epoxy. It’s more buoyant and if you are one to care about the environment, epoxy decomposes a lot faster than traditional glass. My friend has a GoPro and got this awesome picture of me on my board (it’s epoxy).
