hey dudes. heres an old compsand video i did a year or so ago(there are 7 video clips to view). its method shown to me by MIKE SABIN , posting here as sabs. some of the techniques shown are also my own
the method has influence and ideas drawn from ROY STEWARTS techniques and he has been using this method for the longest period of time as far as i can tell. Yes he has far more intelligence then people here give credit for.I have refined these methods by now and some of the things i dont do anymore and of course i work on a large table most of the time. Sabs gave me permission to share this information a long time ago and for some reason due to pressure from others and my own selfish ambitions this has been pretty well kept under hat.
if you blended this video with the compsand begginers guide you would get pretty close to where im at
this method is easily adapted into mass production and im assuming it is what firewire, and other major manufactures now use to produce these types of board. a lot of people will hate my guts for publishing this, but in reality its nothing new. and a lot of people hate my guts anyway.
People may attempt to sue me over patents, but i have evidence of this method before firewire existed and kiteboards and skis have been made this way for years. Hein also makes board in this way.
At the end of the day the people that matter to me in my life are not in internet forums.But playing in my backyard, giving me foot rubs and going surfing with me.
this is a sort of cold turkey break if you will, and this is my parting gift
i will still check in and post a few boards here and there but i am no longer connected to the compsand site or any other group or orginisation due to time restraints and requiring to get out of financial difficulties and personal problems in my real life.
i will leave this video up for a day or so and then it will be deleted permenently for obvious personal business reasons
i no longer used kerfed balsa wood on the rails(i use solid pvc foam, it bends easily), or any urethane glues. i seal the wood first and wet out the cloth normly with a squgee actually on the wood(not folded up in a bucket). i also patch under foot…this will make a strong balsa board about 4 pounds if you use 4 oz o the outside. Also i glue on my tailblocks and nose blocks before the rails are applied. also i now use and electric planer and better shaping tools…My inserts are now cut off sheet and routed in with a router template before the rails are applied… also i use a spray adhesive to attach the hotwire templates.this is a very fast way to make a compsand board
i make boards this way because i dont need any surfboard industry supplier to make a far superior board
the industry is the worst ive ever encountered in my life
i can get everything i need from the hardware except for fin systems
and personally PROBOX is the only system i would use if it was easily available in NZ…the reason being, is that Larry is a true gentleman his product is the easist to install and inexpensive and very very strong
