Sessions / Big board sessions
« on: Today at 06:54:55 AM »
Strong on-shore winds makes for a sucky surf ocean side but super fun big board surf on the other side.

Been riding the Driftwood for the past few months and it's really proven to be a quiver killer. Sunova did a great job on the construction. The board is light and yet solid.
I usually crack a new board within a month of usage unless it's a solid construction, barely few marks after few months. This board category has a lot of potential in the
multi discipline area and outside of hard-core racing it doesn't feel like the wrong board for the job as you can even hang with the big boys...

That's a great hero shot jondrums. Maybe you'll be lucky and that guy will swim by on your maiden flight with your newly designed board  :)

Gear Talk / Re: new fin setup for JL Super Frank
« on: October 26, 2020, 10:31:43 AM »
How many fins did your Super Frank came with? My 8' SF came with 5, one is a center fin (same 4.5" as the rest). I do prefer the thruster setup over the quad in general.
I bought mine used and it only came with 4 JL fins. How do you like the SF with the thruster? Have you tried it in 4'-6' waves? I'll snag an inexpensive Ho Stevie thruster setup and try it out. Then probably try out the nubster (found one for $16 on Amazon) and see how that goes with the quad fins in.

I'd probably start with a nubster. I tried the SF in the local shore break on 4' with all 5 and it didn't suck. I don't use it much but if I did I would probably go with an XL pivot style thruster set.

Nice video. I always welcome few talking points, especially when there's more than meets the eye.

Foil SUP / Re: I'm building a new website for Mark Raaphorst

Looks nice Bill. Some interesting content to boot (more of that).

Since we're in beta testing mode...

- I always prefer clean URL's over dynamic (/Contact vs /?page_id=15).
- I'd use CDN while serving local rich media content to help with slow loading times and latency issues ( https://oneflyingdutchman.com/?page_id=516)
- Not sure if that's intentional but the logo looks jagged and funky. Using SVG format will result in a hi-res optimized file with a very small footprint.

I've been holding off on a new one because of this. The guy who told me about it, described it as the lightest and most upwind efficient wing he've seen so far... and it is Aluula.

I couldn't find anyone who would accept anything other than boardcad or shape3d, so I redid everything into that format.   Looking at the cut I'm also wondering what's the point?  I'm going to finish off the board, but I'll be looking for someone else who will take a little more care with the cutting for next time.  You live and learn

Good luck with the build. Next time look into APS3000 for cuts, very impressive results. Looking forward seeing the finished product.

Seriously, I could get that close with my hand saw.

What's your point TD. The op already knows he got a bad cut, why rain on his parade now.
My point is, some times we get caught up in the tech and ultimately the result isn't what we expected.

I for one wouldn't want to dumb-down my shape on the account of a crappy operator. There's a lot of time and thinking going into a nice shape. I'll take the same time to find a good
operator/builder who's taking pride in his work, otherwise why bother? Get one off the shelf and be done with it. My foil board turned out exactly as the file. The operator told me he'd rather
get a Rhino file than a shape3D to guaranty exact match so I rebuilt the board in Rhino and it was worth it. As expected with such attention to detail, the build quality is on a class of it's own
for anything available on the market at that price point.

If I just want to test a concept I'm working on and get a prototype, I'll give it to my local shaper. I know for a fact that whatever I put into the shape will NOT fully translate to the finished board.
Same goes for the craftsmanship. Learned that the hard way. Point is, there are still good shapers/builders out there. If you want something special, give it to someone special and make sure
you pay them well rather than nickel and dime them.

That's the roughest I've seen. APS3000 rules. Looking forward to see the build.
It kind of defeats the purpose of fine tuning your Shape3D file....
With that logic why even use Shape3D at all...

... There's a video of Allan Cadiz testing a Duotone prototype, which has both a centre strut with a boom attached -- this would solve a number of problems...

Word on the street is that Duotone is going Alula fabric for their next wing. I'll be waiting a bit more before investing in a new wing.
