hi there, i'm building boards for a longer period of time now.
for more details.
i want to get in something new and am thinking of ways to get the ultimate combination of material for a board.
the constructionmethod i want to use is the same as formica (abs sidewalls)
but instead of formica i want to use glass/carbon/aramide or something like this.
am very intersted in how to build specific flex patterns in a board, the board i'm going the build will have a lot flex(more to the tips)
which setup would be best? try to get a lot of snappy pop out of the board.
as light as possible and kiteloopproof.
let's find out!

I make my boards with just formica on the bottom with no ABS rails a really thin profile especially in the tips,flat bottom no carbon just extra glass in the mid section and glass on the tips. No boards have been broken so far
