Nice story... was that the oval shaped Nomad?gilana wrote: ↑Fri Feb 02, 2018 6:56 pmI have only ridden about 10 boards, but the one that stands out head and shoulders above the rest was the Nomad Carbon CCS that someone loaned me for a test drive.
It cuts chop like a knife, and in flat water it glides like a slab of butter in a hot skillet. Then I saw the price and have tried ever since to forget the experience.
I once tried to get some thrust bearing for the Infinity bar mod . . . $3 bearings, they wanted $80 shipping. Same thing was $20 each here...downunder wrote: ↑Fri Feb 02, 2018 3:23 pmIs $30 too much for you ?
Coz that is how much it really costs.
Yeah that and time. But maybe it'd all be worth it just to have some decent graphics on a boardplummet wrote: ↑Fri Feb 02, 2018 6:37 pmMore excuses.......
But it's ok if you don't have the room or skill or desire to make a board. The reality is, unless you are very practiced with composites and woodworking you will not produce a board that is equal to or better than a production board for some time.
Also if you don't already have the tools and equipment to make boards it will cost you more to make a board initially. But once you have the tools board cost is significantly less.
That said, the satisfaction you get out of building and riding your own board especially when it is better than production units is s glorious thing. It's worth the effort to learn.
