Hey y'all I've been getting pretty obsessed lately with trying to beat the airlines in my travels while traveling with sporting equipment I don't mind paying some but I what you pay these days for sporting equipment and to have no guarantees at all that they're gona at least treat it with kindness is not only absolutely absurd but unacceptable. I usually travel with kite(s), bar and pump and either rent a TT or surfboard when I get to my destination or when traveling within the US I ship my TT ahead of time to a UPS store and have them hold it for me a day or so.
But now that I've been exclusively riding strapless surf I've been thinking about working on my own split surf I've been really unfortunate finding any resources online but found a video (below) which somewhat illustrates a decent process, I just have no idea how to make or where to get those carbon cylinders, and I've seen some seriously amazing jaw-dropping DIY stuff coming out this forum I thought I'd ask for some guidance.
Was thinking of purchasing an older 5'4" to experiment on. My goal would be to fit it with 1 kite and a minimalistic bar in a checked in bag size.
Let's brainstorm? ... Any ideas or Suggestions? where to begin looking for materials, etc... ? or simply constructive criticism
The idea would be to open source this mod so that anyone willing can make it happen.
Thanks in advance.
