hey bro's who used kevlar in your kiteboard builds? if yes, explain the use and what if any advatage it bought to the party over glass
I love the Carbon/Kevlar look, amazing when there is a good glossy finish which is wet, the kevlar sparkles real nice.
I have made quite a few using Carbon/Kevlar and found little advantage to using is other than for the looks people give you down the beach
As said Kevlar(tm) or Aramid(generic product name) is hard to work with, you need special serrated scissors to cut it and it fluffs like mad if you try to sand a cured laminate.
There are tricks to cutting it and tricks to sanding it but is a lot of work.
Stay away from this stuff, instead go for a coloured glass or a fancy carbon as these can look better and are easy to use.
This is one of the really early C/K protos I made using wrapped rails
not the best pic though.
