I concentrated on building an ultimate board for racing and light wind conditions in last 6 months.
Built 6 prototypes and tested throughout.
Final outcome is a board which is max 150x55cm and thickness 9cm.
It's a custom handmade board in Poland with bamboo deck and bottom, 3 straps, compatible with all Moses foils.
Straps are fitted to the deck by bolts not screws! Really do not know why all manufactures stay with screws. IBTW: no screwdriver required to fit straps and foil. All fittings use a single hexagonal key which can be kept in a harness knife pocket, aquapack or just inside adjustable strap. This is important if you like cruising - never know where you end up and where you would need to dismantle a foil.
My final board is pretty fat. Why?
For racers – it’s important to have a volume platform under feet during starting procedure and it’s easier to launch it in a case of wind lull. Not all racers are going to do aerial gybes and tacks! Especially in light winds.
For non-racers riding in sub 10 knots conditions – this size allows even to heavy riders to cruise with max 13m kite. You do not need bigger kite.
I am going to produce it only on direct demand as a custom board. It means you might change some parameters too. Waiting period – 2 weeks to produce, 1 week to deliver.
I can take orders from May.
Price? Sorry guys but cannot afford to offer special deals for you.
800€ including DaKine Contour Straps, proper bag, bolts; excluding shipping. This is the best what I can achieve making small amount of handmade boards in Poland.
