You need to do some research on Trent, previously from Milwaukee. He used to make the killer plywood boards, and he ripped on them. I must say that while sitting at the Casino "beach" one day about 5 years, Jerry and I saw Trent walk by with one of his "custom wood boards", and we decided that we needed to start making our own boards. That was the impetus that led into Zero Gravity and BROKITE.
Jeff who lives in the western suburbs recently made a bigger, light wind board out of Plywood, and likes it alot. Just remember your enemy is weight. You want to try to build it to "tool around" and stay upwind, not to jump.
Enjoyed all of the posts from the others that have built boards. Bob you had me cracking up "2 or 3 guys to carry it to the beach.
Keep up the board-building Tim. (Jerry and I were talking about you down in Corpus while building the new boards, you've always been inspirational!!) I would love to check out the course board.....Tuttle.....gotta love that windsurfing background, I used to install "tuttle" boxes in windsurfers at Angulo and Timpone.
Good luck Adrien, and if using epoxy, make sure to wear a respirator.
