It took a few years and several boards to get to this point
The graphics are printed by a sign shop up the road. It's UV resistant dye sublimated polyester.
The centre section of the split board is stiffer than the old board, mostly due to the carbon plate.Grkite wrote: ↑Sun Jan 14, 2018 10:56 amI mean I read the process and start thinking cutting my board in half...but then started thinking the issues...I wonder when you rode her..was it stiffer due to connecting plate?? also the gap in the bottom of the two parts..didnt produce any issue?
Thank you very much for your answer I have to locate such shop here... The limitations I have with raphics is only 5k away as the price of such printer....
No, haven't tried either of them. I have been following Simon (Nomad) for a few years and his boards were the inspiration for mine (i.e. I blatantly copied his outline)fluidity wrote: ↑Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:19 amHi rynhardt,
Have you tried both the Nomad and the OR Makos?
I was inspired by reviews and video of the Mako to design and build something similar but with a bit more concave. So pleased with that decision.
I've read somewhere that the Mako's not such a good wakestyle board though? I ride my board twin tips with my own fins. Started with big ones but then made small ones, I liked how it made the board a lot looser to transition. Also I found too big a fins stuffed up a lot of jumps, binding the board on a reach if I didn't keep up back foot pressure. I think a rectangular board must have easier pop as I edge more on the side than the back, I think the Nomad is slightly squarer at the ends than the Mako. How much concave did you get on yours?
