was hoping for a big favor on a build project this winter..
I know this should be in the builders forum, but not a lot o viewers over there.
I'm building a sector type board and would love some measurements that i cant seem to find online, and there are no sectors in my area to take them off of.
My project will most resemble a 60, a little narrower, so if you have any version of the S60 that would work great. even off the 53 would work as well.
Here are the measurements im looking for, inches or cm's are fine, I can deal with both.
- Board Thickness - ideally, mid board, 1/4 up from tail, 1/4 back from nose.
- Rocker- (laying flat on a table/floor) distance from flat surface up to nose/ up to tail,
- Fins, Distance from tail to back of rear finbox, to back of forward finbox.
- front foot straps, distance from tail to back of forward footstrap.
if you're really into it,
- concave length & depth.
first, take a straight edge, and find where the concave starts by sliding it back from the nose of the board, held perpendicular to center line, and watching for a gap to open between the straight edge and the board around the center line. Measure distance from the tail to that point.
Next, slide the straight edge back the board and try to pick the spot where the concave is the deepest, should be just behind the forward straps. My understanding is the board has a double concave, so your straight edge will be touching a ridge running down the centerline and the outside rail. Hold a ruler perpendicular to your straight edge and measure the gap (concave) at its deepest point.
That should do it.
Thanks very much in advance to anyone who wants to help me out.
smooth kiting everyone!
Too much homework i guess.
one more try, only easier this time.
Anyone w a Sector v2 or 3, 53 or 60. Just looking for board thickness.
you could eyeball it with a ruler.
I can sort out the rest of the stuff.
