The board looks nice. :thumb: I don't do Facebook, so could you please share some info on construction technique, etc.
Thanks!

Hi,
I probably have to build a site outside Facebook ....since I present all my boards in my personal profile and FB site. There you can also watch relevant 3D videos of the boards.
To answer your question, I am going for partly honeycomb woodcore and poplar and pavwlonia decks..cork sheet on top of core....and glass/epoxy resin...
Still trying to figure out how to make parts of the honeycombed core visible...atleast on the top.
What you see is the model..highly renterred.

I know...Now I am hollowing her "honeycombed"...:). I believe for that size (160/46/5 cm) whatever the materials, can't be below 2.7...correct me if I am wrong. But a wide range is 2.5kg..even to 5 Kg. So it will be great to achieve..3Kg :)

That looks like a 3D rendered computer image. You haven't built it?

I've built quite a few boards in PU foam, surfboard construction, and am interested in making some hollow wood foilboards. I'm in Sweden, and problem is finding good source of wood. Recommended wood veneer sources in Europe are welcome.

Yes that's right. I build custom kiteboards from scratch. So first comes the model. Now is in processess already.
Really?...I actually buy my pawlonia sheets from Sweden.and I pay shipping at a nice price...

Baltic Birch veneer
and there you may find: http://www.junksupply.com/product/baltic-birch-veneer/
...in Sweden..you lucky !!! If is applicable ofcourse to your size in need which probably not....:) But you may ask them for any other size. They are very helpful.
