What is resin infusion, pre preg and how do you get your finnish to be good anouth without sanding?
Sorry for all the questions, but i've been sanding my board for almost 2 day (after work) to get a good finnish.

I use self adhesive PTFE coated glass fibre on the rocker.
(from AeroVac in UK), expensive but worth every penny.
Its slightly porous so it allows trapped vapours to bleed away.
Also its tricky to lay on curved surfaces but gives excellent release
every time with a class A finish. I use prepreg but should work on wet layup as well.
