Re: Liquid force spacecraft

Set it up like my directional Powder snowboard, back foot at 0deg and front foot at 20deg, both feet set back. Its was so sweet!, I jump L hand forward, so the board giv...

Re: Kitesurf Drift Launch

Put the kite behind your head unroll the lines as you walk back then let the kite drift no tangles.

Re: Favourite surfboard for choppy powered up conditions, but still small waves

I ride straps, Love my LF happy sticks, Favorite board so far this year is the Space Craft, which is a directional TT, rips upwind in the Chop the wrong way, so you can slash the waves as you ride them downwind. The Moon Patrol is a much smoother board, still rips upwind almost as good as the spacec...

Re: Pocket board building

Just use the PU Block if the tracks are set in, or make the core the same depth as the tracks then you don't need the PU . You have to beef it up anyway with glass/carbon and a wood or carbon stingers, or it will snap, its not a surfboard.

Re: Stringer in small foilbord?

I used two cedar stringers, made it really easy to shape the board, and I did not connect them to the boxes, but the board is the depth of the boxes, so almost all the load is transferred to the stringers through the carbon and glass and the boxes were easy to insert after putting the first layer of...

Re: Pocket board building

From watching video of XPS board building and my experience, final shaping is with 60 grit sandpaper, final surface is very rough and has small tears which the epoxy gets into and should help with the sheering problem, I used wood stringers glued to the XPS with PU glue so epoxy also has the wood to...

Re: Liquid force kiteboarding stops business

LF kites are run of the mill, But LF top of the line boards are some of the best on the market. Sad.

Why anyone would choose Xps as core vs Eps is not understood. :roll:
XPS is Waterproof vs EPS Not so much, Pink Ridged verses White crumbly.
Both are cheap, both can be sanded down and shaped fast.
