excellent boards..

i'm all ready to start work on my first formica boards... they'll most likely look identical to your white one.

regarding your 'fibra boards', especially the grey one... can you tell me how it's finished - what paint system did you use and how durable is it?

the reason i'm switching to formica is mainly because of the durability issue... where we kite it's really shallow and boards tend to get nicked quite a bit - and repainting your board every few months becomes a real pain in the ass.

cheers,

urbanr

NICE! :o
Very NICE! I'm tracking down materials, and studying up on board building right now. Should be making my first try in about 2 weeks.

I only hope my boards will at least come close to these!

How long, or how many boards, did it take to reach this skill level?!

Great stuff!
Thanks for the inspiration!
K. :bye:
