well.
isnt it basically glass covered foam?
Yep. Which is standard board construction and nothing that interesting or complex. It's fine, it's not super-premium or anything. I mean, some guys are making boards like this:

Re: Kanaha shapes 37" Mucho macho.

I've been riding one of the 37" ones that last five sessions or so. It *is* more maneuverable than a bigger board. This is a double-edged sword as it's also "twichier" (i.e., less stable). I also wish the traction went farther forward on the board. I'd like to be able to move my front foot up farthe...

This has inspired me to go work on my tacks. I've pretty much got heel-toe ducks tacks down on one side, now I need to go do 82 of them in a row on my weak side.

Re: New hydrofoil / wave kite and bar: Kauper-XT

I’m real tempted by both the bar and one kite. Probably a 7m. It’s a bit of a gamble in the US though, since I have no way to test anything beforehand, and also with a new brand, who knows if they’ll be around for service or with new kites in a year or two. Both the kite and bar look really appealin...

Slingshot open-sourcing previous model wing designs?

Will be awesome for hobbyists and home-builders if they follow-through. Make your own 633 after the new Phantasm's out.

Re: Naish ditches octopus system.

Is it the exact same valve as on the new F-one kites? If so, it works fine, I don't see problem with it.
