Foilboard started

Postby TomW » Mon Apr 17, 2017 10:09 pm

Lost momentum on my 70cm mast, and decided to do what I do best : build a board.
Am happy with my surfboard conversion, and had a machined blank left over.
Shaped it this weekend ( no wind)

I use the laser quite often. It's a self leveling with a horizontal and vertical laser in a line. lazer, not very expensive and it's useful.
Shoot horizontal att low angle from tail or nose to check cross section symmetry.
Line along rocker to check rocker.
Line up finboxes
Place carbon strips straight
Check that strut is vertical.
