Re: Magnetic bindings

Interesting concept, I would think 7.5kg is no where near enough though, come down hard on the tail and your front foot will probably release, I'd be thinking at least two or three of those magnets per boot? - any more and I would have thought you would have trouble disconnecting your foot from the ...

Re: The fastest board surface possible with DIY

a satin / matt finish should be faster than a gloss. A smooth glossy finish is very sticky to water and produces a lot of drag, a non glossy surface (as mentioned) creates a boundary layer between the surface and the main flow of water reducing drag. This also means the board will be more slippery i...
