Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Thanks. Really interesting. The boards I consider zero flex (no extra slight foil wobbling) are those that simply can't have heel compressions, like Moses T60 Sport. I started to think that we are talking about the different flex :)

Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Thanks TomW,

My friend shaper is going to build it. Vaccum bag is not a problem :) The only problem I see is the right choice of construction as it looks like there is really a lot of options and hard to judge the rigidity without building and trying it.

Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Yea, it's complicated with those high density foams here as there is really no way to buy it unless in bulk orders. I'm just wondering is it possible in garage conditions to achieve something close to production boards. Moses T60 Sport has zero flex, from the outside it looks like it's molded two-pi...

Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Not much boat builders here really :)

I'm thinking about the stringers. Does making a groove and filling it with carbon fiber + epoxy work well for max stiffness?

Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

I build corecell M80 core wakeskates that are 100cm by 40cm, approximately 20mm thick (approx because of the top concave). Using approx 300gsm glass at 0deg yields a very stiff board. Total weight with grind base is about 2.2kg. So.. Cheapest option for you might be to just buy a wakeskate and try ...

Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Foam core about 30-40 mm thick. Quick way: buy 2 pieces 120 x60 x50 mm xps builders foam. The blue stuff they usd for ground insulation. Rough up one side of each a bit with 40g sandpaper. Glue together using PU wood glue. into 100mm thick blank. Cut outline, shape in the bottom rocker, then top. U...

Re: Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Make a thick foam board with double stringers (also gives good strength for foil attachment). Wide carbon strips on both sides on top of the stringers, then usual glass on top. If it will be thin board using carbon is best way to make it stiff. Core is not that important, it can be plywood. Board t...

Zero Flex DIY little foil board

Lowed my Moses T60 Sport as it has zero flex. But really need something much smaller. My friend shaper is going to make me a smaller board (around 111x41) but we not sure about the construction. I don't like the flex that comes with sandwich boards. What would be the stiffest DIY construction?

Re: Chrono V3 Vs Flysurfer Soul.

It's ridiculous to read Flysurfer fanboys. Have anybody of you tried Chrono V3 Ultralight? Here everyone who tried my 13m is blown away. The only thing to complain about is the price tag. Obviously, one can't buy the best for cheap.

Re: Moses 2018

Is it only me or everyone else noticed that it's much easier to learn new turns with Onda 633?
