Re: Pocket board building

My previous boards have one big piece of HD foam each side. 15mm thick. Trying more minimal approach. Board is slightly thicker than 30mm and deck is not parallel to bottom. So there's a little blank foam in the middle. I'm not sure which method is best. But my bet is putting bighead on deck is bett...

Re: Pocket board building

The rocker looks great. I gather your divinycell does not go through to the deck . . . any ideas on how you will put the inserts in? I put divinycell on both sides. So it's bottom to deck. Epoxy with glass fiber mix as plugs. I'll drill out 7mm for bolts. Then 10mm *15mm for collar, and 23mm*2 mm f...

Re: Lacking Knowledge: Studying kitesurfing

Juliane,

What are you trying to do? Map out the user journey of a beginner kitesurfer?
The user journey of an experienced kitesurfer?

Also, what demographic? A young person with limited money and a lot of time will not have same journey as 40+ with money and no time.

You can PM me.

Re: Pocket board building

I bought some big heads. and I've done some sketching of the section and I think you still have to drill out a 20mm diameter hole, plug it with epoxy, then embed the bighead into that plug.
Otherwise you risk pulling the insert through the top lam buy screw/ compression force.
