Anyone make a production board like this?

Postby tkaraszewski » Sat Aug 01, 2020 1:07 am

I’m looking for a free race board that has a Tuttle box, and inserts for 3 straps in a race stance but is only about 110cm long and can also be used strapless.

Anyone make one?

Thanks!

They have a "Freeride 120" at 120cm.

Alpine has a "FS3-XS" as 119cm. - edit , this is KF, not tuttle.

Those are the best I know of so far.

Surely you can get a custom board made in the US? I'm assuming Hood River is the US...

Probably, but it might take some time. Yes, I'm in the US.

I've been waiting 3 full weeks for a package from Australia that should have taken 6 working days :( no international passenger flights, very little mail getting moved. I'd contact those companies and see what your wait is going to be, then ask the shaper...

I waited 6 weeks for a priority package from California to Australia, nothing is moving fast. I have given up ordering anything from overseas.

I've had stuff from China take exactly as long as it should have :lol: and we've had other small packages from Australia and NZ too.

Tracking data says it's still sitting in the handling office. I bet they forgot about it.

of course Groove in Italy will make you anything, and they are good at tuttle box race mast fixings with rails each side so able use any mast, more future proof.
email and/or speak direct, the owner shaper speaks great english.

We have a custom builder here in Canada that does amazing work....has done a huge bunch of our boards, from pocket, to full race, right up to large expedition boards...... with whatever mounts, strap spacings you want. Can connect you if you like.
