The Liquid Shredder Softboards have a Styrofoam base interior which is sealed and then enclosed in a special thermo-sealed vinyl cover.
This Hi-Tec patented structure also has a very resistant wooden stringer to provide longer durability. These softboards are different to fiber boards and other sponge boards, and there is a special care involved in the storage and transportation of your board.
Here are some pointers and tips to make sure your Liquid Shredder lasts for a long time.Models Boards
BEFORE USING YOUR BOARD:
1. Taking care of your board…
You will also avoid leaving those awful wax stains on the roof of your car and on other boards.
The adjusting belt and the board bag's handle are easy to use and will help you transport your board around easily and safely.
When you store your board you should always use your padded board bag.
Placing your Racks...
Also, place a wider fiber board on top.
We recommend the Liquid Shredder padded Rack-Board bag, which is a very practical board back that comes with racks already.

3. Waxing your board…
Use the adequate surf wax depending on the temperature of the water, in order to get the maximum grip.
The proper way to wax your board is by making circles, trying to create these small wax "bumps" of approximately 1cm each in order to provide more traction and grip for your feet. You can find a Sunset surf wax for $1 dollars.
If it's necessary, cut the tip of the screws if you think they are not tightening enough, as described below in the drain screw.
This screw is very practical, because it offers the ability to drain the water in your board whenever necessary. This will always ensure that your board stays nice and light
Note: If you notice that your board has a small drain screw than the others screws, your board has a new drain system and you don't need to cut the screw.
4. Expanded air...
When there is an excess of heat, the internal air expands the vinyl, but when the board cools down -like for example when you go into the water- the internal air contracts and the vinyl returns to its original shape.
This new patented system has a great advantage, because there will never be any delaminating problems with your board.
On the contrary, if you think there is an excess of air in your board, use the drain screw, take it out and then press and push the vinyl gently with your hands in order to make sure the excess of expanded air comes out.
When there is little internal air in the board, or when it's really cold, like at night for example, the internal air contracts and certain marks or creases may appear on your board.
To make these disappear, wait until the temperature warms again, or if necessary take the drain screw out and blow three or four times so that the air expands the vinyl back again and those marks or dings will disappear.
5 Care your board ...
You should always use the Liquid Shredder padded board bag to protect it
Carry it properly …
If the vinyl cover scratches or tears, you can call the Sunset Repair Service and we will go to your house, or wherever you keep your board, and if you wish do it yourself with the Sunset Repair Kit and avoid any water or sand from getting inside your board.
Never use your board if the vinyl cover is punctured.
