Here is a speed board prototype I've been working on, specs and info are as below

stiff with very little flex
paulownia strip wood core, hand shaped.
Vacuum shaped on rocker table
180g uni glass and 1 250g carbon
stainless steel CNS inserts
ABS side walls
Epoxy resin - post cured for 2hrs @ 80c

All together it took me few days to complete. First test will be next week, will keep you updated with the performance...

That looks COOL !!

Could Ya take a shot of the side profile for us ? I'd like
to see what the rocker looks like.
I know Nothing about a race-board, but am gonna guess
that the Right side is kinda flat & the Left side's got a lil kick ?

Cool. My next TT build after repairing my 135x40 is going to be a speed board. What kind of fins did you go with? Looks like a nice custom aluminum speed fin on the back. Are they mini tuttle or standard bolt on, or some kind of custom box?
