Re: The current standard of sails

I have a quiver of 4 batten Blacktips from 3.4-5.0. All sizes. These are super stable and very trimmable sails. Easy to rig since they work well in a wide range of settings as far as stability and such things go, but still trimmable so if you know your stuff you can get the power delivery just to yo...

Re: Custom board manufacturers UK or Europe

I build customs once in a while, but it's just a super small business. Most boards I make are protos for teamirders. But over the years, some boards that started out as true customs for some particular persons needs, ended up becoming production boards. In fact, I prefer designing boards for some in...

A 92 version is ready for him. Not with these fins yet though.

Re: Board design by Ola H.

Shame they didn’t have green. Being an artist, the footpads really set it off. I like the board shape, esp the tail. Having tried several times large fins forward, never to my liking , I find that choice interesting, the fin shape looks kool, almost Weed fin. The fin boxes appear to be slotbox, the...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

Thanks Bouke & K257 @Bouke - care to offer your opinion on the tail kick feature? I never made boards with channels, though I have been tempted at times. But I don't really think the marketing blurp is correct here. Adding rocker just in the center of the tail (rather than at the rails) will not ma...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

The fin setup: Look for a swept back 11-12 cm fin and put it as far back as possible in the front boxes and you'll notice something interesting. Perhaps with a super small trailer in the center. Here is the Machado quad set I recently converted. I did not try it yet though. http://ncm.gu.se/media/u...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

But stubbies are not all the same. Of course. That is why I was referring to the most extreme (square) versions. I think most brands figured it was too extreme and made their version more moderate and JP also quickly reduced their design. Also your Frugal had more taper and curvature. Maybe a touch...

Re: How and why do the MB boards carve?

Ola, I actually completely disagree with this.... Very good point JB. I actually had alias in the back of my mind when writing but decided to leave this eventuality out. I should have said that snowboards have no relevance to surfing _unless_ we start to make surfboards that flex. Water is not snow...
