Re: New North Foil's 'PA Carbon Mix 50'

How do you repair such wings? Will epoxy stick to it?

Re: Slingshot Foot Hook vs NSI Foot Hooker

I am using the old Predator surf hook for 3 years and it still looks strong. I cut half of it off in first year, since it is to long and getting in the way otherwise. It is a shame they do not produce them anymore, they could sell well these days...

Re: Production carbon mast composition

I broke my Moses Vorace mast yesterday and got to see the construction...clearly two halves bonded with a thin white foam core.

concave deck - how much is to much?
