Im looking to make a board.

I can do the part pretty easy with shapping / sanding the board

However i cant find any good guides with anything covering the

footstraps /pads

and espeically the epoxy layers, this is the biggest problem for me, i have no clue....

Also does anyone know where i should get the plywood from in Florida? home depot? What kinda of plywood... For an all round board...


Thanks! :bye:

Now that's the sort of step by step I've been looking for. Like it a lot and makes it seem do-able without vac-bagging. Now just need to source Corecell.....

Wallet not that ready at the moment :P but looking at other foams for newbie building. Not getting air yet on the water so not so concerned about foam explosions. Looking for something cheaper to try/play with to get used to working in foam. Probably talking about end of summer/autumn project as woody MkII is in progress at the moment and not got a lot of time to get on with that anyway.

Hey!

I have tryed PVC foam on a board and when I got on the water with the board, I was starting to jump alot. It broke easily. Now I´m running on a hand made skimboard and it has a better foam core: Roofmate, thermic isolating foam for buildings- EPS (Extruded Poly Stirene). Either way, you'll end up using corecell, divinicell or airex because it will last and make your boards cheaper because they will not break.

Cheers
