hacked the ends off my old slingsot dimis(as my efforts to sell it have failed)to create a 130x40cm.regretted it straight away thinking i'd just blown £100 ,but took it down the beach yesterday anyway.out on the 11.8 ab in gusting 20knts in bindings and it worked a treat(took me a while to get used to bindings again its been a while).i did feel the width when maasively maxed though but 20knts is to much for me.but under that fealt good.
retained all that i rember liking about the board but the without the massive length and alot looser feel.
tried it later when the wind had dropped to a 10-12 knts marginal before i left and to my surprise it was still up and planning almost as quick as my 147wt,very similar to the differance before the operation.
my only worry now is its shelf life.i've sealed the tips with apoxy resin and sealed the new fin holes with silicone,just hoping it will hold together.
