New Season

JC likin the soft tip flex and flat rocker.




Cooked in the press @60psi/60 Celsius for 24hrs. Flatline rocker and kite optimal sidecut radius 13m. The horizontal rock maple veneer core build  looks good so far. Now for some snow to see how it holds up.

Rubber strips go on top of the steel edge to improve the resistance to delamination over temperature cycles. They also decouple the edge from the core somewhat decreasing vibration. The big air bag press is in the background.

New skateboard sandwich maple core.

Steel edges being applied to graphite ptex base.

Ken in super light wind

Posted: May 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

The wind was dead onshore and no whitecaps to be seen.   We did not have a windmeter but it was well below 10mph in the puffs. Ken was using his new speed3 19 and custom light-air board.

Here is my latest project a 5’7″ fish. All those years building windsurfers has come back to haunt me….Back to the future.

Core is 1.5lb eps and mahogany veneer skins.

Put in the probox quad fin box. Nice system with templates that align and hold during rein infusion.


After sanding the boxes flush and a little PU shine. Added the coaster LOL.


Bare board 6lbs! If she snaps I can add some stuff but I will jump first run.

Kim hates it!
