I just wanted to say hello and where have I been. I recently built my own board (http://blog.brettschumann.co.uk/) and I never knew about this site. I spent many a month searching google for help and never came across this site once. Just spending 30 minutes reading topics and already I have learnt some more.

I am looking to hopefully building more boards in the future mainly as a hobby but maybe to suppliment my income in the future years. So any extra help, advice and information I can get would be really welcome.

Saying hello and thanking you all in advance.
Brett

Hi Brett.
Welcome to the joys of riding your own creations.
With time you will discover that making a board is just a matter of settling for compromises:
Length, width, Rocker, scoop, outline, materials, will all play havoc with your sleep and give you a kind of satisfaction only a shaper knows.
Selling your work is also very gratifying, but a long way from the start.
I will never forget the first "homegrown" surfboard I sold. It seemed way to cheap for the amount of love and time I put into building it.
Luckyly kiteboards are not as critical to shape and you should be having fun in less time than i did way back then.
Regards
Nico
