Another advantage of plyboards is that you can have a huge quiver without the huge expense.... homemade boards are cheap... plywoods not expensive and making a former to get that rocker isn't hard... Allready got that part sorted out... allready have my designs... now I just need the wood...

I have a mate who is a sponsored rider, and he uses Plywood boards over his 'free' boards because he prefers the feel. He has now made about 6 mboards with different characterisitcs and loves them. Specifically, he loves the flex of the plywood.

I have ridden these boards and they do work great. only thing against them is their weight. But then the choice is $80 for a slightly heavier board with good flex vs $1600 for a production board with no flex. You decide...

There is certainly nothing wrong with these boards. They will not hold you back. My mate is doing huge board-off spins with his ply board no problems.

If your gonna spend the big bucks... you're better off spending it on kites rather than boards... a lot of people I kitesurf with have homemade boards but top of the line kites.

One really good guy in particular has one homemade carbon wakeboard (it's lighter than any production board I've used) and 3 X2s (12, 16 and 20)...
