Following significant research and development work Ryman Composites have commenced manufacturing Surf Boat Side and Sweep Oar blades for a new client. 

Previous suppliers had manufactured moulds but had been unable to make parts in volume or with consistent quality and strength at the required weight. Ryman Composites (then known as NoseCone Manufacturing) worked with the client further developing the specification of material and process, training operators and successfully producing the first order of 50 Side and 25 Sweep blades. 

Using a combination of Glass and Carbon Fibre mat including unidirectional and plain weave and a high density PVC foam core the blades are proving to be more than up to the rigours of the surf boat racing circuit.
