New Chaosystem custom finished

Postby Lord of the Boards » Thu May 17, 2007 5:39 pm

I just finished my latest project. It will be a lightwind/ beginners board.

Specs:
140 X 39,5
Rocker: 2,8 cm
Concave: 3 mm
Rail/ tips thickness: 4,5 mm
Weight: about 2,5 kg (board only)

Layup:
Durasurf
1,5 mm plywood
7 mm corecell foam
3,6 mm plywood
durasurf
Rail: ABS

Method:
No glass cloth used. I just glued the different layers with epoxy raisin, filled with chopped fibreglass. All with a half bag-vacuum on my rocker table
I made a prefab of the graphics under the durasurf topsheet. (thin paper with graphics printed on it)


Hopfully I can test the board tomorrow.

Hey Green,

The ABS is awesome! Thanks alot dude!

Tomorrow we'll probably have 17 knots according to windguru, so I should be able to test it tomorrow. This board will be a birthday present for my brother, but I want to test it first :lol:

Thanks for reactions!

Very nice. Puts a lot of production models to shame.

Wish mine ended up like that. Ah well, best keep practising then

I've tested the board and it's great! Very good low-end and easy to ride. Exactly what I wanted to achieve from this board, so I'm really satisfied.

Last week I gave it to my brother for his birthday. He is really happy with it, although he didn't have the chance to try it yet. He wants to go kiteboarding as soon as possible, but there hasn't been enough wind lately.

Unfortunately, I also killed a board again. I was practicing downloops. I landed on the back of a wave at full speed from about 4 meters............. I heard a loud "snap", but at first I thought nothing was wrong. But when time went by, I saw a large crack coming from underneeth my footstrap. The crack was growing slowly and the board started to feel too flexy. Broken.

I'm really sorry about this loss, because this was my favourite board. So now I already started my 15th project, to build a copy of this board. Next week it will be finished. I have a full woodcore (Karuba-wood) for it, which I've already shaped. The deck laminate is now hardening on the vacuum table. I hope this one will be stronger......... At least it looks really cool so far.

My brother finally tested his new board yesterday. I gave him his first kiteboarding lesson. He's really talented in boardsports and after an hour he was already cruising downwind. There wasn't really much wind (about 10 knots), so downwind was the only way to go.
He had a great time and I think the next time, if there's enough wind, he will be cruising around on his special made custom :D
