Re: My experiences Wave riding with different boards and kit

Here are a couple of shots of my toe board that I use for all my kiting . Its 5'7" x 17 1/4 " and the PVC sandwich is finished with a custom paint job and polyester gel coat.

The board maker Biggie, from sirroco has been making sandwich boards with a glass finish for years.

Cabron wrote Hi Kevin, good to hear you're still into kitesurfing. However, any chance you're riding supermotos as well or is it another Kevin Salter? :wink: I ride s-motos too and noticed K. Salter on a supermoto site - just a coincidence... I used to be, but that was back in the late 70's early 80...

Re: My experiences Wave riding with different boards and kit

Yeah that was a dumb place to try and go kiting :oops: I came unhooked just as the Guy launched me, and you can see what happens when your holding the bar with one hand unhooked when the kite launched. Fractured my wrist, and ended up with stitches in various places, plus a massive bruise on my hip,...

Re: can i use polyester resins in a vacuum bag set-up?

Not a good idea ! Why, cos the polyester resign using a catalyst goes off too fast for vac bagging. Two part epoxy will give you a much longer working window to get the bag down right. Typical working time with polyester is 15>20min vs 1>>2 hrs with epoxy using slow hardener, so when you bag using b...

Re: Surfboard fructure (ding) repair

Dont use polyester sun cure as pictured, it eats the styrene core!

Get some 5min epoxy ie two parts , hardner and resin. That will work fine. :thumb:
