At five liters volume , a nicely shaped piece, or pieces, of wood could work just fine, and if you picked the right kind of wood there would be no need for fiber reinforcement and probably it could be very competitive in terms of strength and stiffness.

Still, it's a lot of work to do it right, and nice wood is not cheap, and $439 USD seems like a fair price for one ready to go.

If you wanted to pay me to make a wood board, I would charge more than that....

What's the maximum foil weight for this board to keep floating?

I've tried to find this information on Naish's site but couldn't find...

I imagine 5 kg would just about sink it,

So Slingshot H1 might be a bit dicy.

Then again, the deck pad has _some_ bouyancy, and probably is not included in the advertised 5 liters volume....

This is a nice looking pocket board!!
Some time ago I wrote about my board sinking and disapering. For any aaluminum mast/fuselage I would bet it sinks the board. My lightest aluminum fuse is 640g and complete alum foil weight is 4 kilos. And aprox. 5l board sinks. Sometimes its floats like a tombstone. Depending on sea state I Just pput a kid float in the back strap. Similar to a gojoe.
Make sure you foil is a slow sinker or floatS. Volume of front wing is important too low volumen and sinks fast.
Iré never ridden a producción foils that floats like sab moses.
Good winds!
