Re: F4 kiteboard build.

The old style rocker with lifted tips and flat centre is probably the most inefficient shape you can get. In wakeboard terms it's essentially a 3 stage rocker. And in terms of lifting the leading tip over chop, it's even worse. For the same angle, the earlier you can start the lift, the more height ...

Re: How dangerous is this?

Huh, well, I know this is a forum and everyone believes they are entitled to an opinion no matter how much or little they may know about a situation but Most of you on this thread do not know the rider or his abilities or the child or his abilities or much of any other details of this particular si...

Re: TT thin vs thick rails

Hi Guys there was a change from thin rails to thick rails for TTs sometime back - example Axis Vangourd 2016. What are the pros and cons of thick rails? On paper I'd assume thin rails on a twin tip would track upwind better since the rails will sink better? If you want a surfboard feel why not just...

Re: F4 kiteboard build.

Cool! The trick with flex is to achieve minimal rocker (but not negative rocker) under typical riding conditions. This means you would typically have a lot more static rocker than a stiff board. Also, the main bend should be between the footstraps and the tips straight, like the Nobile 666. Just som...

Brilliant , great system , you make it look easy..
Thanks! :thumb:
But most of the credit goes to Kerrybarra, it's his system (and his vacuum pump :lol: )

And lots of trial and error along the way.

Re: Nomad's concave molding technique

The building technique in the above attached photos uses a core which is perforated , the top lamination is made first allowing any air and extra resin to flow down through the core and sit on the bottom waxed flattening plate. This technique eliminates any build up of air bubbles trapped in the ce...

Re: Board infusion timelapse

Regarding mixing for resin infusion, isn't the fine mixing done as it infuses through all the composite fabrics? The short answer is no. You need to mix the resin thoroughly before it gets infused. Sure there's probably some turbulence during the infusion that could do a bit of mixing, but I wouldn...

Re: Board infusion timelapse

Nice video, thanks rynhardt. I've tried infusion only once but that was on a small part with quick setting polyurethane, it didn't quite finish infusing. I saw last week that a local supplier is stocking infusion resin though, so I'll consider it for my next project. I have a complex surface to rep...

Re: Board infusion timelapse

The drill mixing might be fine on low speed, but some of the readers might get the wrong perception and mix on high speed :( And that might go in flames big time! Being there, done that. Even mixing resin only with ie pigment on high speed to get the right color and not resting it, did go in flames...
