Re: New to Kiteboarding and building a board

Has anyone tried to bend the plywood with a steam cleaner. A friend of mine was did this for other purposes, not for a kiteboard. As I understand high temperature softens the glue in layers of plywood, so after cooling playwood keeps the current form.

Re: Some boards I made
