Re: Peel-ply finish

I've only done one board this way. I degassed the resin, poured it on, diagonally brushed it out and then laid peel ply down, using squeegee to get it even. Important to have no wrinkles/folds in peelply. It works great. Light, cheap and let's the deck show! But I have noticed that my wetsuit boot ...

Re: Peel-ply finish

Re: Peel-ply finish

Use a bigger bag overlap the peel ply and breather cloth and meticulous attention to placing the peel ply, breather cloth on the board and in the bag without any wrinkles.

Peel-ply finish

What is a secret of making a nice, uniform peel-ply finish on the top side of the finished board? Please, share your method.
I get a mostly ok finish with perfect grip, but there are imperfections here and there and I do not know why they happen…
Thank you in advance! :thumb:

Guys just go riding. No way there is something more from these discussion. Try write manual how to get shoe lace tied. Written words are sometimes not enough.

Re: Convert Ride Engine Harness into a seat harness

Same here...rides up when over powered. You could try the ocean rodeo session harness tie downs. It is a waist harness but hybrid with straps to hold it down. I think they sell them separately but there may be some about, as most people with this harness removed them. I didn't remove them. I am sti...
