Practiced a few down turns again and actually was able to slide across the grass whilst being pulled and stayed on my feet.
Things are going ok with practicing so far, next i have to be able to launch on my own , so i think that will be the next stage, landing is not a worry..
Ive been getting the gear together for a vacuum table. So far the pump, a fair bit of old lpg gas hose and fittings, a large syringe ( cant get the carby part yet.)
I have been thinking about the PBT sheet that goes on the boards for the shine finnish. I have seen how every ones that makes a board by vacuum bagging gets a great shine on the bottom and at times a crinkly finish on the top. Got me to thinking.
Ive read how people make the boards in two part. They laminate the base and at times later on laminate the top at a different time.
So, considering the bottom comes out slick and shined because it's on the perspex sheet how about if you turned the board over once the top was done and laminate the top as you did the bottom.
Maybe the pics will explain better.

So we adjust the rocker like this. Turn over the board with the completed base and lay it up in this position with the top facing down.

Maybe i am right , could be wrong, but hey worth a thought. The drawings were done in Google sketch up pro.
