TWs latest board

Postby TomW » Tue May 15, 2007 8:00 pm

only built one this year:

135x34 (not including flip tips of 4cm)
2,5kg
Glass and Carbon on Divinycell H80 core with solid epoxy edges
18mm concave
25mm constant rocker- not including flip tips

Board is brilliant- loose, yet course stable. FAST, but easy to turn. Rides like a snowboard, twist your hips and it goes there. Flip tips eliminate almost all splash. The least splash of any board ive tried.(Cred to Erik Herstens who has this on his boards. i tried a board of his and flip tips will now be on ALL my boards). I had to add them after the board was done, but gonna paint them soon.

Layup is 3 layers 165g glass and 1 layer 245g carbon each side, with 4 more glass layers under footpads. Along with concave this board has very little flex. Next time a bit less glass on bottom....
