Hi board builders,
I need some help improving the strengt of my TT boards. So fare I have broken 3 boards this year, which is a little to much from my point of view
I'm 90kg heavy, and sometimes my landing are hard and flat:-)
Under the heal of your foot ...
before placing the second skin on your board ; cut a groove in
the core down to near the bottom skin,and lightly sand the skin itself
at the bottom of the groove. The cut only needs to be an inch or co past
where your heals are located.
insert an exterior or marine ply, (only 5mm thick is needed) into the pre-cut
& sanded groove. Then continue on with your lay-up.
50K uni will also work.
This will keep the core from crushing under your heal; and it's Much
lighter than extra and unnecessary skins !
This was the First glass & carbon board i made off a mold that actually worked,
(also the one i learned on). Turns out, the turned down rails would hold my 11M Ozone Edge
in a 35mph wind ; my 10M PL in a 42mph, even though the board was 160 X 48.
I learned to jump on that board, & when my 210lb would hit the water the board
held up nicely. It Had the groove cut with ply inserted.
The board weighed nearky the same at my 142 underground and had a 3lb pound
density core in it.
