DIY CAD ultra-concave wave twintips 1500 and 130mm with my own fin designs. Easy upwind, awesome carving. Switch Nitro 10m V7, Naish 5.3m Wing. Now focussing on Wingsurfing to rise to a new challenge. Building my own foils from my CAD design and 3D prints, built a CNC machine last year and now cutting designs with CNC as well as 3D printing.
Up to 3 DIY foil designs built and getting the hang of wingsurf foiling as we switch into 2021.

Thin CA glue and kicker/accelerator will work
That works for me too.
I've started from scratch, complete self build. Automotive filler paint is great too. And some of the automotive gloss paints have a great skin tightening effect that will close holes if you can get the paint in in the first place. I'm so stoked finally having mine at wax & polish stage after a crazy amount of unskilled filling and painting work.
