Well---I don´t know! Its been 32f since i made it and then i went indoors to skateboard and make boards.

Waiting untll better weather...Have high hopes for it.

Planning a "wave" board too- actually may be a race kinda board but more all-round.

Race board is earmarked for a "customer". I´ll make about 1 dollar an hour.

and, hey, jump in and make some yourself!

What ratio to you mix up the epoxy and microballoons,

This was something I should have done on my board but was a little too timid to give it a try.
Beautiful work....

Xstream,

thats a cool looking board- squat and wide. Is it a board made for surfing a wake behind a boat? How do you think it will work with kitesurf side forces?

Microballon question i don´t really understand. I use ballon mix to glue layers of foam together, and fill small voids. I just mix it until it has a consistency that is like thick honey. You need to take into consideration the foams ability to absorb epoxy- it sucks the epoxy from the mix and the mix gets "floury" when you spread it thin. Then i know its too thick.

I tried priming the foam i use ( Divinycell H80) with a mix- did some lamination tests then peeled the cured glass off. The primed foam had considerably less adhesion- i could pull the glass off with my hands cleanly. Un-primed i could not peel off without ripping foam up. So i don´t prime the foam at all.

BTW, I glue in inserts and boxes with straight epoxy.

Carbon and other materials arriving this week from R&G in Germany. Can´t wait to bag it.
