gloss coat

The third, final, optional coat of resin brushed onto a surfboard. After being machine-polished, a gloss coat brings up a high, lustrous, showroom shine; it also adds marginally to the board's strength. Longboards almost always have a gloss coat, while high-performance shortboards usually go without, as the extra resin adds a few ounces of weight.
