Re: First wake board build

It worked out very well!
Core ended up 10mm, thinned to 3mm tip and tail with a router in a jig.
650g triax on the top, 300g on the bottom.
Has a lot of flex, too much to be honest but it is an extremely fun board.

Re: First wake board build

Hi, the timber came from Melbourne. It was originally 14mm rough. I thicknessed it, then glued the 4 planks. Thank you for the kind offer for the inserts. I've already got some. But I'm sure I will need more in the future. Do you sell paulownia? I'd be interested in buying more for some other boards...

Re: First wake board build

Finally got around to taking a pic. Poured epoxy in the routed channel. The channel is 10mm deep, only leaving 1mm of wood.

More pics to follow as I progress.

Re: First wake board build

Well, I tried liquid PU. It was bad. Luckily I tested on some plywood dummy boards. It was bubbly, and generally was quite difficult to work with. Downunder, I've read all your posts about pressurising a tank and curing etc. A lot of info, so thank you. I'm going to do a few trials with epoxy, and g...

Re: First wake board build

I'm going to use an epoxy with a tint. I've found a west systems product that should work well.

Re: First wake board build

Timber glued lightly. I'll thickness with a thicknesser to 11mm. Then I'll make a core blank with ply so I can use a router copy bit. Liquid PU on its way. I'll route a profile on the outside of the rails when they set. Flex calculations look pretty good. More pics to follow. Thanks for the advice s...

Re: First wake board build

As an FYI for anyone interested, my current slingshot shred weighs in at 3.9kg with no bindings, no fins etc just the board. With damp bindings etc it is just over 7kg. Obviously fully wet I'm sure it would weigh a whole lot more.

Re: First wake board build

Thank you Downunder. I've had a good look at all of those.... Interesting. I'll thin my first core down to 9mm in the centre, with tips of around 3mm. I'll have a crack with the triaxial as I already own it, so I may as well use it. As I have two cores so I'll do this one first, and my second with +...

Re: First wake board build

I just checked on the junk supply website and they supply 22oZ triaxial for the mat to use with their wake board package.
I will weight my current wake board and see what it tips the scales at.

Re: First wake board build

I'm after flex, as this is a park wake board. I though almost all cable wake boards were using triaxial glass, but maybe I got that wrong? 1.2kg does sound awfully heavy though... And that's not counting the top and bottom sheets, inserts and the bindings I'll be bolting on.... I'd better do some mo...
