Re: Carbon vs Wood made boards

I don’t see why a well made board with a carbon layup shouldn’t be strong as well. It’s no coincidence that carbon fibre is used pretty much everywhere that lightness and strength are a priority. Here is why. Strength, stiffness, toughness, are SEPERATE THINGS! They are not interchangeable, nor rel...

Re: Cabrinha X2 wing

Not a fan of booms in the first place, but had a quick go on the beach and first thing I notice is the mini booms are stiff but their connection to the strut is soft so the result is wobbling back and forth of the wing.
