I don't understand why you would want extra stiffness,would'nt you want a little flex and springback to maintain drive. :idea:

I believe more of a parabolic rail would provide more flex while still being smooth.In other board sports stiff boards really chatter,chatter sux..!! Creating more work in maintaining momentum. :cool2:

Great looking board!

Couple of things. Cost and time?

You're vacuum board was a professional setup?
