Re: Pocket board building

Thru bolts are easiest. You should drill out wood about 20mm diameter and fill with epoxy plug, put glass over area or whole board. Then last thing drill it out 7mm dia. If you want to avoid bolt heads on deck, you can embed Big Head fasteners in an epoxy plug. Route out a 20mm hole that is 17mm dee...

Re: Time to spare, time to change

I'm quite surprised by economic downturn. I'm doing what I've done before, but WFH. No big changes. Never went to pubs, bars, restaurants before. Before this I've not gone out and hang out in the city or anywhere crowded ( dislike crowds). I work, kitesurf mostly alone, ride my road bicycle alone. W...

Italy got virus into hospitals first. It spread from there. Weakest got hit first. Aging society. People there are not following isolation recommendations.

Re: covid 19 closing beaches, any more to report?

my sister in-law got kicked off a beach in the canaries by the police and decided to fly home immediately. I told her not to go, it was extremely unwise of her to do so. Now she has to stay home and self isolate for 14 days. I hope she does it, but past behaviour ( going in the first place) indicate...

Re: foiling is surfing

Help me with a thought experiment. What would happen if you towed these guys onto the same waves but riding much bigger and slower surf foils?

How can you stand the flapping?
