Anyone know where to get larger sheets of carbon fiber strands to make tails patches like you see on tons of brand name boards? I know every board supplier sells different carbon fiber tapes, etc. At most they are 5-6 strands. You could make the same look as the pic below but would require cutting a few rows and stacking them on each other which I doubt the glass houses are doing. Would also be hard to stack them in a perfect straight line…
In Australia, try these guys: https://www.sanded.com.au/collections/surfboard-reinforcements
But not everything that looks like CF is actually CF. See here: https://inlayz.net/catalog/product/view/id/2255/s/pro-os-stz-2195/.
most of the brand name boards use rice paper , printed to look like carbon fibre .
Good sources. These tapes are available by the yard from a variety of Suppliers. So many different ones it’s hard to keep up with them.
Thanks, anyone know any in the US? Every shaping supply place I know sells this stuff which doesnt get the same look as my original pic.
Fiberglass hawaii has something similar to what you are looking for.
