Re: Front wing

Nice DIY! love the simplicity graphite powder and epoxy can be for pin holes. heavy on the graphite powder to keep it easier to sand. That'll keep the unsightly red dots off it. The glazing compound is faster for sure. but if end beauty is your desire use graphite powder. Also 3d printing a wing in ...

Re: delamination Airush compact active carbon construction

"Soft deck" and delamination is the most common end to kiteboards. If you do nothing this will normally progress to a rail crack, and a shit ton of water intrusion when that happens.

Re: 5-0 DIY Vader

RR resin is the worst crap I've used.. fish eye's like crazy under the slightest contamination, I've tried 5 other resins all are very resistant to fish eye and bubbling...if you have to hot coat in a cleanroom after warding off evil spirits with dna and a blow dryer you sir have a shit resin.

Re: Splicing how to guide

The stitch or splice needs to take the load evenly onto the larkshead otherwise it would be weaker or slip. Try cutting half or all the stitching off your front lines and get back to me :-) Ha ha good timing, unrelated to this post I was out yesterday and one of my sketchy stitch jobs gave up on li...
