New board

What a fantastic fulfilling hobby creating your own surfboards and the anticipation for the first test ride gives me goose bumps. Nobody seems to get this wing thing but when they light up down a wave face it is thrilling .This board is the longest most buoyant I have made. North Sea pleas bring wav...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

I used to use contact glue but it is difficult to lay up large pieces, after some testing I now stick the pe with laminating epoxy it has the same adhesion as contact glue but gives time to move the pe around before it sets, with contact glue if you make a mistake its bad news. For the core lay the ...

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Layered and veneered structures get stronger with concaves , it’s so easy to press form layered shapes .there are so many types of skin layering to try out .With polyethylene , cork ,etc it’s easy to change a shape or add to after testing

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

You can change twist and bend flex by adding layers of cloth down the core spine. I feel flex in a board is desirable

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

The wings are part of the core with added layers of cloth after shaping. Very easy to press form rocker and fin angle I put in about 2 degrees in my fin pitch. My supplier is East coast fibreglass supplies I mostly use Airex PVC C70, also 3D core material but is very resin rich and a bit heavy but e...

My boards are the same as a wood Paipo but with soft buoyancy draped on shaped in a teardrop form. I could use plywood but it is too heavy and lacks the bouncy and strength of Airx foam. The photos I sent deform the true shape of the board.

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Nature uses pectoral fins in all her best in water muscle powered designs, a delta shape for sustained lift at high angles of attack, sharp tips for roll and drag reduction

Re: Quad Concave Body Board Study

Thanks for a very interesting post here is an extreme version of wing rails, but think of them as pectoral fins this board paddles amazingly well. You can feel lift at very low speed it will outpace most long boards on the smallest waves. On steep faces with one tip in the face it is mind blowing fa...

Re: Soft edge

The trouble with performance experiments and trying different approaches is it creates more questions than answers, and the old question is how you measure it. I feel wave gardens might be the answer, it something you can budget for and get guaranteed constant size waves so you can set a base line f...
