DIY Paipo Foilboard

Postby Bluecrewmark » Wed Mar 22, 2017 2:42 pm

Fellow builders, here's my first attempt at crafting my own Paipo Foilboard (and surfboard). And yes, she has positive buoyancy with a G10 wing, as well as a Lift foil.
Construction notes:
2 1/4" laminated cedar decks, glued together with 3M 5200 on a rocker table
2x 6oz glass
Aluminum plate sandwiched in between for mast attachment area
Clear non-skid deck (no straps needed!
