skimboard rocker

Postby ankers » Mon Jul 03, 2006 2:45 pm

Any one has suggestion on how much rocker to make on a skimboard.

And how to make it, just shave it off? or press it with weights??

thanks

I have been debated on this, but I'll give you my opinion.

Skimboards are flat except for a turned up nose. Mine has the nose turned up by 3/4", which is about 20mm. The nose starts turning up about 7" (or 19 cm) from the nose tip. Rocker through the whole length of the board slows it down.

go read the thread in the Kitesurfing section called Skimboard. A person named GDGORFMAN has a good summary.
