Re: The new Best?

Man, you guys take a little bit of satire pretty seriously.

I thought that kiteforum.com would be full of open-minded people, yet my post gets pulled down from the main forum.... Lame.

I'm gonna make a whole series of these, got some for North and Naish in the mix.

:bye:

The new Best?

Hey guys,

A bunch of my mates inspired me to create this after many people voiced their frustrations with Best Kiteboarding.

Re: convex or concave sidecut?

From what I can understand, a board with convex edges will work better without fins. I'm guessing it has got something to do with less displacement in the centre and more at the tips?

Re: foam core + Qs

As for the core, I'm thinking of switching to paulownia, simply based on cost and strength. Now I'm searching for any info related to making fins. I thi...

Re: foam core + Qs

How hard is it to run the pump from AC power? Is it simple enough to wire it up, so it runs directly out of the wall? I haven't been able to find a detail "step by step" method for running a fridge compressor as a vacuum bag pump.... how easy is it? I think I may have found a better source for Divin...

foam core + Qs

Hey guys, Getting started on my first proper board (built heaps of plyboards over the years).
