speaking of cross over sport tech, kiteboard companies should take a look at lib-tech snowboard builds and realize that great boards can be made from high density foam! What a concept! Imagine what it would be like to have a kiteboard with a proper flex pattern and weigh 2 lbs less! Wow, imagine the possibilities... wow imagine.... maybe in another 10 years we will get there, imagine

I think North is the only company with the size financial backing and engineering to pull of this invention

Check out BroKite's custom TT's, maybe what you're hoping for - http://www.brokite.com/2012/page/techtalk.html

Look like some pretty sweet TT's, would like to ride one if I ever get to Corpus Christi again ...

this thread is about a world renowned board builder making innovative surfboards and you post something about a small random outfit making TT's?

Mike D - Look a little deeper and you'll see that Jerry Hartung and West Hansen of BroKite have a long and varied history in boardbuilding, and are building some very innovative TT's, thin & light HD Divinycell just as Scott was hoping. Their five stringers between top and bottom laminates are unique, to my knowledge.

Sometimes the little guys can have great ideas, engineering and products too, not only the big co.'s.as suggested by Johnny R.

I'm hoping someone kites or surfs a Lib Tech waterboard and writes about it here, but while we're waiting, might as well have something to discuss beyond indignation that the thread has gone off-topic.

Peace, good wind for you, whatever board you're riding.

Brokite boards are interesting, like to try one of those too.
No need to duck for the imaginary fastballs of inside baseball :lol:

Can tell you're just trying to be helpful but lot's of foam boards you can try....
sadly you missed the saracasm compeltely, there are HUNDREDS of people making HD foam boards (myself included...and I'm betting scott has a stable of homemade HD foam boards as well.) Some pretty big names (Jimmy lewis probably the most well known) making production boards. It's not new, never has been, the first kiteboards I believe were likely made of this shit.
But appreciate you keeping this thread alive.

Cuz we still wanna know......Again anyone try a libtech?....it's a cool design idea, is it any good?

I could not find the board I liked, and they wanted $150 to ship to Hawaii...that is more than I can fund right now.

:angryfire: Wake up Mike, Brokite makes 60 boards a year, one at a time in my Corpus shop. West and I know what it takes to craft one of the most exceptional twin tips available. The boards are all carbon, with high density foam core, and are only 5/16 inches thick. The construction method produces a super light board with unique flex patterns unmatched by others.

100% CARBON FIBER - NO FAT - NO TREES - CORPORATE FREE
