cnc machinng a twin tip

Postby board dude » Sun May 04, 2014 11:08 am

We have been playing around with video cameras and put together a quick video of our cnc machining process , the 3 axis cnc machine is custom built for our special needs and uses a vacuum bed to hold the twintip chassis in place as well as tape around the edges .

Nice cnc movement, left-right, left-right, turn around, right-left...

But I'm intrigued with 'easy to use' and a 'high performance' statement!? Dare to explain please?

Great question and here is a quick answer, if you come across any Nomad riders ask them as well i can imagine you shall get a similar answer.
With high performance we consider the highest upwind angle , super smooth in chop , fast with stability and easy on the legs , just about zero spray , the speed means minimal resistence hence very good lightwind qualities, the super smooth in chop means great and easy control when the conditions are high wind and getting a bit hairy. The board weight is in the 2 kilo area making it very easy to turn in the air and position , or just pop it out of the water without using the kite .
With our Prototype model the drive rail is 8 times stiffer than the toe side rail, giving the board great pop whilst railing hard but real flex and forgiving in flat landings.
Put all that together and the board is easy to use , we shall guarrantee that within hours of using a Nomad board you shall become a better kitesurfer, its one of those boards you just want to get out and ride .
Please check out the various reports from magazines , a quick team-series test for you here

24 layers of Kevlar and 2 layers 12k carbon on top of that?

Boards look great but that is a lot of Kevlar .

Thanks for the good looking board comment, high gloss gel coats on top of Swiss carbon fibre tend to have a stunning effect. Nomad twintips are flexible boards, more flexible than most tiwntips . Its just one layer of Kevlar on each side of the core with 12 layers in total of fiberglass, the fiberglass sections do not each cover the entire board ,pieces are used in specific impact areas, most of those pieces are used under the footstrap areas. Kevlar is a key ingredient to distributing impact quickly much the same as bullet proof vests.
