Re: Kite Surfboard - wood hollow with pawlonia deck

I know...Now I am hollowing her "honeycombed"...:). I believe for that size (160/46/5 cm) whatever the materials, can't be below 2.7...correct me if I am wrong. But a wide range is 2.5kg..even to 5 Kg. So it will be great to achieve..3Kg :)

Re: Board restoration

And the solution is...forget the graphics and save just the core I'm not interested in saving the graphics currently on the board.
