Re: travel with surf board

If your going to pacasmyo, may I suggest to buy a board off Craigslist use it, then give it to a local kid. They are in bad need of all kinds of equipment. And be kind, give them some cheap set of fins too. You will see them surfing with a thruster set up but only one FCS fin because people don't l...

Re: New board

Looks good! I like the ridges on the edges, for grip during board-offs? And the ridges will add to the board stiffness too. Yes to both. I stole the rail idea from Hyperlite's Wishbone. They used it to save weight with an all bamboo core and keep the board stiff. By far the best board IMHO and woul...

Re: New board

Remember, resin doesn't reach its full strength for a week or two, no hard landings this weekend! I have a make shift hot box with heat lamps to speed up the curing process. I'll use a space heater later to cure it even more after I pull it from the bag. Worst part of making a board is curing time....

Re: New board

Good stuff. What's the weight and flex? So you've bonded 2 corecell pieces in the middle? That's a good idea to lower the cost, I think. Corecell here is very very expensive. D. Its lighter than what I'm used too. I ride only wake and wake-style boards so I never worry about the weight of a board. ...

Re: Kiteboard Pealing, How to Fix it

Trim it with a razor blade but leave a bevel so it does not catch and start peeling more. The only thing that is peeling is the grind base and they are next to impossible to epoxy back down. Your glass is not delaminating so just shave and forget about it. My old Ronix Von Vidal has the hole nose sh...

New board

Progress shots of my latest build. Made it for board offs and free ride/big air. It's 135x41cm 1" 3/8's rocker with just over 1cm of concave. The core is divinycell 1/2" tapered to 1/4" with PU rails and inserts. The glass is 24oz ( 45/45 biax with mat ) on both I might add some carbon to the middle...

Re: board with camber?

Thanks for your input! I already have the concave, and I decided to give it a try as it is. İf it does not ride well, I can put a third layer of ply or some thin foam to cover the cambered area as you suggested later on. 1cm of camber should not be that bad. I know Ronix has been playing with cambe...

Re: travel with surf board

I will be traveling with a surfboard back from Maui in Aug. We don't have a local Firewire dealer here so I'm buying an Tomo Evo from a dealer in Maui. I'm going to see if they can ship it home for me but if not I'll just eat the baggage fee coming home. Since your taking a 6'0 sounds like you plan ...

Re: Prescription sunglasses

I am currently using contact lenses but those are not good for the eyes when doing watersports, thus, I want to get some sunglasses with prescription lenses instead. Any recommendations? I like the LiP Typhoon, but I do not think they can be ordered with prescription lenses. Any thoughts? You could...

Re: Getting into the boots using soap or lubricate?

Wear socks. Sounds stupid I know but I wear systems and all ways wear socks. If its a tricky spot for getting into the systems I just leave the boot loose and put them in the bindings with the ratchets loose as well. Once in the water I can slide my feet in them and just ratchet down while riding. ...
