Board Design Forum
It's really interesting if you look at the difference between quads, too. For instance, look at Infinity Surfboards (e.g., Tommy Lloy Carver model) and then look at a quad from PSH or most other people. The Infinity guys are pulling the rear set way towards the tail. From the videos, it looks like it's working really good for those guys. So many boards, so little time... fascinating, though.Last replied by dan nordin on Thursday, 31 March 2011
Tribal Knowledge -- Questions about SUP Designs and Shapes
RAILS TAPERING 1. Should rails be tapered off or big and fat to boost buoyancy? 2. If tapered, what's the best way to compensate for the buoyancy lost with the tapered rails?Last replied by Andre Niemeyer on Wednesday, 02 March 2011
Open Discussion regarding board design.
what type of fin design would be best suited for a SUP? I suppose thats sort of vague question. Ill try to break it down here.. Fin design; base lenght, height, rake, foil. A race SUP needs to glide across the water with minmual drag. Since a longer base length provides more drive would a shorter longer fin be more suited. I am more currious about fin theory, but to get better ideas of what someone is saying it helps to associate an something with a purpose. any thoughts would be great.Last replied by Jesse Marohn on Thursday, 09 December 2010
have you ever tried SUP in PU and Polyester resin?
As you said and I agree, SUP with PU and polyester resin they work good if the right blank has been chosen and the right glass job done , work which I do personally. Also i'm very very helped by my blank supplier in blowing a good strong and light foam.......but after all, that combination it is the best working on the waves.This is my modest opinion.Last replied by fabio giacomini on Sunday, 28 November 2010
