Wow, sad and scary.

What's your perfect day?

Also curious to hear thoughts on Johnny's new board design, he said it feels great.

Right on.

Lag time in pumping or wave riding?

That was his first time riding a new foil.  He moved his foot strap next session and is ripping.  He's been working on those layback tight carves and even made a new narrower board for tighter turns.

The Shape Shack / Grow a Surfboard - Plant Foam Cloth and Resin

Has anyone grown a surfboard and laminated with tree sap?

Over the years I have heard of various attempts at bio or plant based foam, and every time I followed up it was a dead end.  Either they focused on other markets or gave up for some undisclosed reason.

I have more recently heard of nature's epoxy - mixing tree sap with burnt wood ashes.  Information seems scarce and seeing a finished creation even more hard to come by.

I tracked down a grow foam kit supplier and some plant cloth and some tree sap and gave a go at growing a surfboard:

Next up... No board.  :D ;D  ::)

 ;D

I laughed out loud, you got my number, appreciate your humor.  I'm super cooked from 2 days of epic winging and this comment revived me.

however, it doesn't ride nose down -- just back foot heavy. 

In my experience if one is riding back foot heavy the board does indeed ride nose down, the heavy back foot is what is being done to correct or compensate for the nose droop.  My solution would be move the mast forward or feet back.  Other strategies usually introduce drag (more lift) to try to correct the imbalance.

I rode 8+ foot foil boards for several years and found that mast placement made a huge difference.

An extension plate sounds like putting a pipe on the end of a wrench, and then wondering why the boxes ripped out of the board so easily and being stuck 2 miles offshore.

I put a second set of boxes in several boards, even some of the second box installs were lazily done (we didn't know what would work back then), seems like spreading the load over 4 boxes allowed us to get by with just setting the second set into weak foam.

Thanks.  Not many takers on the bigger swell, and the one smaller spot was way to crowded.

winging been on 105 for a couple years.  Tried 90 the other day on multiple foils and hated it, no noticeable benefit and had safety foil to keep the wing in the water.

I suspect me being tall with long iimbs and big feet gives me more leverage to influence bigger gear.

13
Affordable interchangeable durable masts, wonderful and very good for foilers to have this option.

So are the adapters connected to the mast by butt joint?  Or is there some male/female connection going on in addition to the bolts?  How deep are the threads?  Love to hear Kyle's design thoughts on this.

One of the things I love about the Axis doodad and the F-one titan foot is that a loose bolt isn't a big deal, and bolts never come loose.  With the slingshot aluminum mast to fuse a bolt would occasionally come loose and be a session ender.

Digging this thread, thanks for sharing Dwight.  Fun to see friends in your videos gives me a better baseline for how big the swell is.

This swell got me excited to foil surf, first time in summer I have ridden my smallest foil.
