Re: Rules of Thumb for waveboard design

On mast foot: I see this as a very important design and tuning dimension. Not so much or tuning the feel or adjusting to sail sizes as one classically thought. Rather I see it as a way to tune the responsiveness of the board and actually also the sail. This goes by the assumption, that the sailor wi...

Re: Rules of Thumb for waveboard design

Excellent post from Ola (https://sailboardsforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=116&start=90) has detailed discussion on board design. Is there a simplified summary of what varying features of design do? I know they are inter-related so a few rules of thumb to start my understanding. In another post Ola s...

Re: Board design by Ola H.

Here’s a question for you ola: with your main team rider/tester Marc Pare gone from the team, will there be a big change in board design do you think? Ie the feedback from alessio will be different as he is a different shape, weight etc and has a different style from Marc, so the boards could turn ...

Ola, you mention your preference,
Is this what is being installed on the Simmers?
Or just your own boards
Or a variable on both
The data on the FLy, Quantum, Cortex and Helix are for the production boards. The two others mentioned are my own protos.

Re: Board design by Ola H.

Sounds like more toe than you used to? I run 4.8° at the base now but that goes back to 0.4° on a 12.5cm fin. So average 2.6°, less than yours. But the asymmetry flows out towards the tip. I recently measured a fairly new Starboard and it had 1.5°. I have been using the same for at least three or f...

Re: Board design by Ola H.

I run between 1.3 and 1.8 degrees of toe in the fronts and from 0-0.8 degrees in the back (in some extreme case 1.3 in the back). The Cortex comes in at 1.8/0.7 The Quantum at 1.5/0 The Fly at 1.8/0.5 The Helix is 1.3 (no rear quad boxes) The limelight, one of my personal boards, is 1.8/0.7. The Tor...

Re: Board design by Ola H.

Some chance if I can have my ways, but then as a later release. We need more testing time on more sizes and also need to think about how much market appeal such a board would have. That equation is in itself quite dependent on another new boards that will most surely make production and kind of sit ...

Re: Board design by Ola H.

Happy new year everyone. I'm signing off the year 2019 with two new board models that have serving in the Simmer range for a long time, the Freemove and the Helix. Now they will both see some updates. I combined both models in all sizes in one pic here. http://ncm.gu.se/media/users/ola/Public/Boards...

Re: New Bruch Board

V= the central spine of the board is lower than the rails Flat v= each panel of the v is flat (rather than having a concave in it) Double concave=the panels on each side of the central spine of the board has a concave, in total forming two parallel concaves. Single concave= the rails are lower than...

Re: New Bruch Board

Sorry Ola, that is even more confusing, without double concave on a flat Vee. I thought F1 was technical . So a genuine flat vee is standing proud of a flat bottom. Do you measure the rocker on the vee or on the flat? V= the central spine of the board is lower than the rails Flat v= each panel of t...
