Some new foam/fiberglass boards

Postby Halomon » Sun Jan 28, 2007 12:44 am

These three boards are my latest foam/fiberglass/epoxy/carbonfiber creations. The twins are 55 and 53" respectivly and are double concave; they both ride smooth and clean. The surfboard I have yet to use; it is a Greenough style hull bottom with super flexy single fin. I will strap it after it gets ridden and get back on the performance. Til then be well and build em clean !!!

Hi rocketpants; sorry for taking so long to answer your question about the decking. Well, I found it at a local surfshop and it's sort of like a soft,knobby traction pad. I glued it on with contact cement. The black and yellow board has Airush stick-on pads and the yellow board has my favorite, adjustable plates that you can costom fit to your foot angle. They are ancient NSI models and I've used them on countless boards. I highly recommend this kind of setup for home builders cause you can pull em off old boards and pop em on new ones. I seem to always be working on something new and it's nice to know I can count on some some functioning pads that are adjustable. As far as the sheet decking pad goes, you gotta look for it at shops that deal in windsurfer and stand-up paddle boards. Those guys use it the most. Hope you can use some of this info.
