Re: Board design -- also a boring question

Whats stopping you? ;) Cmon, I've been using my 2x1.5m laundry for years... Anyways, spray comes from edges, sand off the edges on some angle = no spray. At least on my boards. Why negative outline on some boards? I.e. Litewave. More area. Less area less drag, the optimum is somewhere in the middle...

Re: How do I get traction on the surface of my Alaia?

Search the forum for Alaia. Basically, use the peelply fabric on top of polyester. When cured, remove pply and that's it.

Re: My first kitesurf board! Eps Foam okay ?

:thumb: Pls see my reply for the core thickness on the above thread. The 155/50/1.5 cm Paul.plank is less than 2.5kg if remember well. Impossible to bend by hands. Hence, 100g FG bias on bottom and 200g UD on top will make it really stiff. I have a FS Rad 4, almost same dimensions as my DIY, FS has ...

Re: Lightwind kiteboard build, planing ahead
