My first board - (FNB 132x39)

Postby FNB » Wed May 06, 2009 7:34 pm

That's my first board. It's made of Divinycell H80, low viscosity epoxy system and glass fabrics. The rail is made of epoxy resin with some talc powder as load. The board has 2 cylindrical bars of carbon between the foot pads so as to improve the stiff in the middle of the board. It has a 4 cm rocker and 3mm of concave. It feels very smooth and confortable in choppy water. Please, tell me your opinion.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it.
Yes, that thing was a leash. I’ve already removed it. ;)

Thanks zob.
I did the graphics using cars spray paintings over the cured board and spray varnish as the last layer. It was arduous cause the number of masks I had to do (but I liked the result :D ). It was the last thing I did.

That is one nice looking board. Any idea what it cost you to build it? Did you used a vacuum table?

Thanks frankm1960.
It cost me about U$180,00. It’s only material cost.
Yes, I used a vacuum table. But the cost doesn’t include the table, the compressor and the vacuum pump. The table cost U$50,00, and the others equipment I’ve already had.

Your board looks awesome! Did you try to copy any commercial board, or is it totally your design?

How much does it weigh?

How are the flex characteristics?

How long are the carbon stiffener rods?

What is the rail shape?

You like riding with small fins.
