Nice. Didn't see any foam cores for the foil, but that was pretty much all the bits.

I've been thinking a lot about the bottom of a foil board. Seems to me that the board shape has to be right for the foil. I don't think retrofitting a standard board would be optimal.

Wow! I would like to know how many weeks that took to complete? Interesting video that's for sure.

Nice presentation, really makes you appreciate the work that goes into custom stuff.  I was surprised that he was pulling 20-25in Hg in the bagging process, but I guess that makes sense since he's working with wood core.  (Reminds me how little I really know)

Ditto, I think the "Tomo" types are going to be the best. Short, no windage up in the nose, and they pop up on a plane super easy with any sort of a bump. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a used 7'2" or 7'4" Hypernut to retrofit a foil to.

I do 20" for hard foam. It makes a difference in how the layers are integrated and the amount of resin remaining. It won't crush the foam but it will distort it if there are any compound curves. It's why the Geezerfoil has an aluminum backer plate with a corrugation. On the first try the dihedral laid flat.

I've always kept my board repairs below 7" out of concern of pulling too much resin out.  Maybe time to step it up.

Starboard is thinking the same thing. In believe the 2017  7'3" hypernut is designed around foilers. It's supposed to come with a Tuttle box so you can run it with your starboard/ go/ foil.
