Hi all

hope you have some good wind or great time making boards!

I currently follow a few forums and have my own blogs.

One of it is:

http://downunderbloghr.blogspot.com

Bi-lingual on my native thong Croatian (probably the only kite board shaper from that part of Europe), and English (been living in Australia for the last n-years).

The Australian forum is built by Matthew:

http://boardbuilders-forum.1077691.n5.nabble.com/

The above is easier for us to follow coz of the time difference in Oz.

I have found some great designs on French site as well:

A bit odd with English translation tho. But some very very nice designs.

Forgotten to say, building 3 boards atm, all bamboo. But need to finish my heat blanket first.

Enjoy !

D.

urethane:
baste rail channel with epoxy, keeps core moisture away from the plastic, no bubbles, and no vac chamber required.
Rough up the core edge first for max. adhesion if you think needed (prob. not strictly necessary)...

Hey BWD, that is a very good suggestion! Cheers for that!

Would you use a thinned epoxy, like an epoxy sealer?
