Cheers guys.

I got the first one in the press today.



This is the only pic i took during lay up. The first one is always a bit of a stressful event lol. Racing the resin, trying not to forget anything.
Im playing with reduced core thickness for weight savings and some carbon tow there to regain the stiffness

I've got a question for you. I attempted to build a board myself 5-6 years ago, ran into some delamination issues, but the biggest problem I ran into was forming the edges. How did you fit the edges to the base?

Like this.
Pre bent perfectly to shape and superglued to the base. Then on top of that some "vds" rubber strip.
I did forget the vds on my fav board last year though and it didnt delam with over 30 days on it

I used alligator clips too, my problem was I couldn't seem to bend them to fit right. They make some sort of hand tool for that, but I couldn't find one online.

If the fit isnt perfect they will delam for sure, probably even while you press the board.
I made my own edge bender tool from a bar bender slightly modified and I get fantastic results from it.

In other news I just pulled the first board out of the press, cut the flash (roughly), sanded the top sheet and put some clear on it.
Its fkn exciting!
