DW, I'm super impressed by your foil board designs.

Thanks Bill. If you know Big Mike, check out his boards. He has a few of mine.

If I could post photos, Iíd show you the broken other boxes. The last time I reordered with Chinook, I had to wait weeks to get mine because they had filled orders for 300 and 500 boxes shipping to Asia. Donít put your head in the sand. Use chinook.

Why canít you post photos? 

Are you worried about getting COLAíd?

I was all-in with photobucket. When they screwed everyone, never felt like getting screwed over by someone new.

DW, me too. However the attachment feature here works decently. Resize down to like 800 wide and youíre good to go.

The handle looks OK, you'll be holding it and the fuselage most of the time, so the balance doesn't matter much.

Finally made it out. I was able to catch small waves that were not breaking....super happy :)
Already thinking about a smaller version with an aggressive tail kick as suggested.
