Re: Symmetrical designs of TT?

If you ride boots you can hold down a lot more power.

Re: Boots vs Footstraps?

Don't make up your mind regarding laces/velcro unless you actually go and fit some boots.

I've got LF Raph's with laces and LF Vantage's with velcro, and I find the Raphs are actually easier to work with one hand.

Best is go to a wake shop, sit on your ass and try putting on the boots with one hand.

Re: Boots vs Footstraps?

+1 for boots. Having injured my knee with straps I'm too scared to have a big wipe-out again with straps.
With boots I'm just so much more confident that I won't aggrevate my injury.

Re: Building / design resource links?

On a slightly more serious note, if you talking about twintips, then plummet is right.
Another alternative is to pick a displacement type board for light wind, i.e. surf or SUP board.
Depends on what kind of fun you're after.

Re: Carbon wave mutant

The improved stiffness may be the result of better bonding between the foam and the carbon?
As a result of applying both pressure and vacuum during curing.

Re: Carbon wave mutant

If he likes. :D I really should be working.. but I couldn't resist.. The two places I've had issues with my very flexible board was: 1. In between the feet : negative rocker 2. Just outside the feet : tips bent upwards So my understanding of the forces involved is shown below. 1. The board experienc...

Re: Carbon wave mutant

I guess it depends on what you want to measure. Placing the board upside down with a weight will include flex from all areas of the board, so if the tips are very flexible they'll contribute a lot to the overall measurement. I'm not so much interested in the tips' flex. The first board I built was w...
