Re: Peel-ply finish

No vacuum, also be sure your masking tape edge is very flat.

Re: Peel-ply finish

I have had good results on CF with a flat surface as follows: iron the peel ply so it is completely wrinkle free; mask the board around the perimeter of the grippy area; place the peel ply over the area; apply epoxy over the top of the peel ply and ensure it is completely wetted and there are no bub...

Re: What Moses mast on 2017 slingshot GW

Thanks Frank, my understanding was that the SS GW was the previous year model of moses foils. Would you know if the 2017 GW 104 mast was made by moses and if the wings and fuses are interchangeable?

What Moses mast on 2017 slingshot GW

The 2017 SS G. Whisperer has a 104cm mast, what is the equivalent moses model and year? Are these good masts? Thanks.

Mast Length for Boosting

Is a 111 cm mast best for boosting big? No tricks, just air.

UV Protection Over Nonslip Epoxy

Hi, I am at the finishing stages of my homebuilt board, breather cloth finish is used on the epoxy deck for Nonslip, it is not very rough but works surprisingly well. If I coat this surface with UV protectant varnish will it get slippery? Thanks.

Re: Foilboard Floats on Side - Heads Upwind.

Did not have the go pro that time, hopefully won't be a next time... The board is a home made 160cm paipo, so not much bouyancy. Fell and ended up about 5 yards from the board before the chase began, quite surprising how quickly the board took off.

Foilboard Floats on Side - Heads Upwind.

Hi, does anyone have a foil board that sometimes floats on its side so that the mast is horizontal and half a wing is out of the water? This happened to me yesterday and the board "sailed" upwind on its own tack. I was unable to body drag fast enough to catch it with my wetsuit and draggy life jacke...
