my vac bagging moulds have been made from bendy ply with mdf ribs to create the desired shape. Its cheap as chips and works a treat.
your right vol i don't know what i need yet. i'll gain that experince and decide what type of board i want.
in the mean time i'll be researching the techniques and materials used for these boards.
i also have another more abstract project which involves landboarding a beach 50km long then kitesurfing an inlet for 5km then landboarding a further 90km. so i need to develop a kitesurf deck i can strap my landboard to for the inlet crossing.
for this i need a bouyant board thats short and perhaps folding as it will be strapped to my back for hours.. i'm thinking like a surfboard style construction with the wheels of the landboard recessed into the deck.
Molds for vacuum bag traditionally need to be non-porous if you seal the vacuum bag against the perimeter of the mold. Otherwise you will draw air bubbles right through the porous mold and into your laminate. With your bendy ply are you somehow putting the whole mold inside a larger bag? Pictures?

I suppose you'll find out all your answers about techniques and materials here http://skibuilders.com/ is very helpful site. What type of boards do you need? you have to try, try, try many boards....... best regards vol
