In principle yes, or I wouldn't be so happy if someone else did, unless making same invention independently. I have actually now two versions of it, revolutionary and even more revolutionary :o If I have time/insipiration I'll make a prototype board in near future...

ok, looking forward to it. I hope it won't take too long.

But, maybe you can tell us, what extra performance to expect?

Because performance wise I cannot imagine what could make a twintip better...only thing would be having a TT hydrofoil.
There we already saw a prototype, which I hope I can test one day, since it looks big fun.

Not sure who is trolling here ;)

If u guys dont like someone announcing something with just a word, get over it and carry on.

And yes, agreed, a TT has room for revolutionary improvements. Or evolutionary. Whatever...

Wake me up when it hits the "super duper revolutionary " invention status. No offense but do you dabble with "meth" ?

Looks like a carbon twin tip to me.. two sides, two pads, 4 fins..
Any details? Am I missing a point?
Hi,

it is a board made with resin infusion. The first one's have been made around 2004, so nothing new here. On this particular board the bottom is made out of 0/90°, I hope for the owner there is also something else underneath. This will turn out into serious issues for both the producer and the owner. Every part the bends should always be 45°/45°
0/90° is way too stiff. When ever you view a picture from a bridge side wise, cables, reinforcements, parts are always 45° angle or close to this angle.
The layup should always be symmetrical if possible.
This board is more or less a showboat or "loop d' loop design" Call it however you like.
tks

Kosta
Thanks Kosta! You‘re our German expert! :thumb:

I think the next big technological step will be someone including EFFICIENTLY graphene in the construction replacing "standard " carbone" . Very Light weight, and very rigid, very thin (nano thickness on 1 or 2 layers of atomes) , and raw material (made out of cabon) is not so expensive.
