Hi there,

Does enyone know where I can buy materials for sidewalls online? I'm looking for something like ABS, but anything similar will be allright. They have to be preshaped strips of material, to use as a sidewall (ready to use). I prefer a supplier in Europe, but USA will be OK too.

Thanks in advance,

Jan

Ive used UHMW-PE as edging for 10 boards then ran out.

So what i did this time was take my 15mm thick foam blank and mark out the the outline, then routed a 8mm deep x16mm wide groove (freehand with routher) along the outline.

Then i filled it with epoxy, slightly overfilled. Make sure you do it on a perfectly level table!

I trimmed it level with foam using a router that rides in a transverse carrier that is in turn on flat longitudinal rails.

Milled/sanded down top deck to shape. Was fast and easy, lowcost

I would suggest putting some microfibres in there too.

what about urethane sidewalls/rails? ride is using it in there 06/07 snowboard lineup http://www.ridesnowboards.com/boards/tech/?id=sidewalls. it would work really well for dampening in chop, and if you were to bash into a slider or rock, anything hard, the urethane wouldn't crack; it might dent at best. i don't know if sheets of urethane can be bought or if it needs to be poured into a mould or whatnot, but it'd be neat to see it used as rails for kiteboards.

Looked over a few different series of new brand name board lines coming out.
Seemed like the trend was towards lighter, cheaper and PVC. Torsionally, they twist like credit cards.
In laying up my own, the design goals are usually a marginal trade off in weight for stiffer more durable boards made with tougher components.
Guess I'm going against the flow but it does lead me to ask if the general board riding population really gives a flying fig?
