Re: 24 hr epoxy cured in 1 hr

I've had the same effect, especially with microsphere fillers. Of which you'd need a lot less resin than normal anyway, it bulks up the resin a lot.

Re: Designed foil behaviour?

Thanks evan, plummet and tomtom. plummet, I'm trying to understand your bottom right diagram. I think critical is that the feet combined with the foil and stabiliser control a pivot point. Without the stabiliser the board would be super sensitive and likely near impossible to gybe. With acceleration...

Re: Designed foil behaviour?

Interesting attitudes and comments to my query about a deviation from what's still a pretty new sport, even for kiteboarding which is also so brand new that it's barely a generation old! I'm a bit disappointed though that I had to work out for myself the most basic issue (and only technically hard t...

Designed foil behaviour?

Hi all, I've not ridden foil before. I usually design and build my own stuff (I'm currently riding my own 4'th design twintip which I resin infusion moulded.) So two questions, the answer to the first may influence the feasibility of the second: 1. On an average foil setup, what's the difference in ...

Re: PSA: Check your harness - Friend of mine got luck, really lucky

Beware not just the strap's condition but the stitching too. I had a 2'nd hand mystic strap stitching come loose mid jump a couple of years ago. Especially hanging them up in the sun will degrade the stitching. For the last year an a half I've been using an old (20years old + ?) Neil Pryde windsurfi...

where can i buy abs in europe for doing rails?
Find a car panel beater supplier, look for ABS spools for plastic panel repair. Then use a clothes iron over aluminium foil to flatten the ABS wire into your mould.
