I second that!
Switch to Core-Cell A500 or A550..... Much more resistant to core shear.. Divinycell and kledgecell were designed for a totally different market and are better suited to more rigid applications such as boat hulls, chemical storage tanks etc.,, not thin cored kiteboards that are flexed beyond the norm....
Looking at your pictures ,that shear seperation reminds me more of PU or even XPS foams... That one's not worth fixing.. Perhaps it was a unusually "bad" piece of foam??
For those of you "pro" builders out there still using H series Divini,, shame on you,,, you're selling an inferior product..... for this particular application..
You definately do not need an inner glass layer in the core's center when Core-Cell is used...
Just my $.02...

I'm glad you located a dealer. The core-cell will not be the cheapest core material either, usually on par with Diviny. You won't have the exploding core problem again though.. m still riding 3 boards I built in the winter of 2003 and they're in great shape...
I'd incorporate some form of heel patch reinforcement,, this helps the board last a very long time.. P.M. me if you interested in some of the heel patch tips...

your DCELL looks Green....

I'm hazarding a guess that you have old DCELL stock. the new stuff I have H80, is grey and seems to be alot stronger than the green stuff.

I hear that DCELL has changed alot and improved.
