The Shape Shack / Board from H.....
« on: October 18, 2020, 05:42:39 AM »
My first full PVC over pieces of foam glued together. What a chore after the fill coat did not harden correctly so, paint it is. Innegra with carbon rails 7'3" x 30". Added another strap to get it wet winging today but it's for SUP foiling the outside sets. Dedicated wing board next :)

While going out through thigh high surf yesterday, I fell off and when I resurfaced the wing's leading edge had blown. Argh!!!! From folks experiences, which wings hold up better in the surf?

The Shape Shack / No Vacuum bagging innegra experiment
« on: July 19, 2019, 05:43:36 PM »
Thought I would share....

This is my 4th attempt at board building and I wanted to reduce the use of vacuum bagging so, I tried something different.

I placed the innegra on the deck, lifted the cloth that covered the rails and used light spray adhesive on the foam and cloth, let it tack up then stretch/compress the cloth to fit. I then layed 4oz fiberglass with lengthy overlay so I could use blue painters tape to pull the cloth after wet and squeegee the resin. I even used clothes pins to help :)

I've used the board close to a dozen times and so far all is good.

SUP General / Aw, Chicken Feathers
« on: May 22, 2019, 10:59:07 AM »
Copied from an article
The primary material for this trailer is chicken feathers – yes, chicken feathers – set in resin. Company founder Angel Irlanda has experience working with feathers in fabric, and once the decidedly lightweight material is fused with resin it apparently becomes nearly as strong as carbon fiber.


WOW!  8)

The Shape Shack / Time to build a foil specific board
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:49:47 AM »
Hi, I'm going to build another board and would like to have a combo tuttle with fin boxes. Has anyone seen this type of setup that you can buy? If not, what boxes would you recommend.


Gear Talk / Wake Foil
« on: June 04, 2018, 04:55:41 AM »
Since it is flat here in Texas, I'm spending time foiling behind the boat. So, to share the stoke, I took out an ol friend and he was foiling on the 200 in less than an hour. He's a 150lb and the 200 started flying at 6.5 mph....so cool to see him advance so quickly.  We plan on spending more time on the lake and want to migrate to a wake foil. This video shows a rig with a very shallow Tuttle box. Does any Zoner have any experience with this box? Where can I get one...ect.


The Shape Shack / Foil Repair
« on: May 10, 2018, 10:09:01 AM »
Just received this foil from a friend and am asking for repair suggestions. Sadly this foil is not very old and the damage was done on land. Makes me want to cry!
