Oops, I meant the Cedrus mast seems to offer a solution to ventilation.

I find the 1300 does some really strange stalls. I've never warmed up to it. It's in my van but it's almost virgin. Some of the really good foilers here on Maui do magic with it, but for me, it's a crash waiting to happen.

Looks like the gear is catching up for these big wave riders. Do you see how small that foil is??? I'd say 400cm^2 if I had to guess. Looks like an aluminum mast and a lift custom foil but who knows.

Don't know how much vac bagging you have done but it was an expensive learning experience for me. Played around with different stuff but as DW says keep it simple. More layers means more epoxy. You don't need much pressure to damage a light EPS core.
 I havnt made a lot of boards but this SUP turned out well. 180g carbon/innegra hybrid and 100g UD flax. Very strong and impact resistant.
 Patrick at 3 Bay SUP uses spread tow weave carbon. He says the same board made with a normal weave is definately heavier.
 Using perforated release film can give a better finish than peel ply. I also found a light weight peel ply.

Dave posted a pretty in-depth video about it today in the Infinity SUP Owners Group on Facebook.  Probably need to join to see it but he is pretty responsive there.

I'm not sure if I like the parallel rails. It kind of looks like a shortboard/longboard hybrid. I'd like to see it in action but I can't find any videos.

The links are working properly for me. I'm not seeing any spam.

Definitely something I will have to think about.

I suppose now that you're retired you can spill the beans on how to cleanly lap innegra with no glass on top?   ;)

A broccoli band would probably be fine. I cut mine from a thick rubber band I had kicking around the shop. It's on my 90CM Axis carbon mast, and I didn't bring that to Maui. I really don't have a consistent issue with the Axis aluminum mast. I have done the "fall out of the sky" thing a few times with the 999 and 400/60 but it's rare. I don't know that the band does a thing, but I'm sure about Shark Banz. They don't do anything more than a little shark chant would do. At least the broccoli band doesn't cost 94 bucks.

Thanks - will try that out on my alum mast. At this point Iím not sure if itís my technique, equipment (also using PNG 1300 and 910ís) up front but I had some pretty spectacular bails out the front during my month south in the Dominican. My friends have commented that my stance is somewhat narrow (i bring that over from my snowboarding and sup surfing)
I did pickup a tip that Iíve yet to try - was listening to Roberts interview with Mark Rapphorst and he mentioned that he micro shims the front of his stabs with slices of beer cans - he didnít mention the issue that all are trying to solve here but I wonder if itís related. Canít recall how they got into the shimming topic.
Be well - jaime
