Re: Reasonably Priced KB Instruction in the OBX

By far the best instructor with the best set up is Captain Ty at KiteHatteras.net
He will have you up and riding quicker than anyone else in the OBX.
Safety is number one with him, he is a great instructor, and a nice guy to boot!

Re: Disrespectful French-Canadian's

To all, To put this to bed once and for all... Sam99, the next time you are in Hatteras, make a point of going to Buxton and go see Ty. Walk up to him, extent your right hand, look him in the eyes and say...Merci! That's all Ty wanted. Now everyone go out and get on the water and have some fun.....!...

Re: Concave questions

Concave works great!
Look at the Mako from Ocean Rodeo, they have been making it for over 10 years now....with concave!
Concave smooths out the chop.

My homebuilt board has concave and it rocks in chop!

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 10 Admire your work! I will leave things here for today, and let people respond with comments/questions etc. You can see the strips on the left that didn’t make it into a board blank, too many knots and I didn’t want to get into splicing sticks together to get rid of the knots. That is a Mako K...

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 9 Clamping Time for clamping the strips together to form your first board blank. As you can see I used bar clamps and utilized the fences on the edge and end of my workbench to help in keeping things nice a tight. One thing I want to stress to newbie board builders, DON”T over tighten the clamp...

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 8 Laying strips down after gluing After you are happy with the coverage of glue on the surface of the sticks, its then time to lay them on their sides and get them lined up squarely on your bench. Again the fences make this job very easy. Remember the numbers you put on the strips, are they in ...

Step 7 Glue applied to the strips

Apply a liberal amount of glue to the strips and get rollering! The cedar sucks in the moisture from the glue like crazy so don’t linger at this point. Make sure you get good coverage on the entire surface of the sticks.
Notice the clamp holding things together.

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 5 Prep for Gluing strips As you can see, I have now placed the strips on their edges in preparation for gluing. Also, see how handy the fence is for gathering the strips together on the bench. Nothing fancy here, just good old wood glue and a disposable roller. I actually clamp the strips toget...

Re: Mako/Paipo/Shinnster build

Step 4 Strips in order I have laid out the strips in the order that I want them in the finished board. You can’t see it in the photo, but I numbered the strips just in case I move them off the bench. Makes it a lot easier to place them in correct position when they are numbered, ask me how I know th...
