I’m overwhelmingly sure I will ding the daylights out of my first board, so I don’t want to buy a new one. My country doesn’t really have any 2nd hand foil boards. I’m thinking about asking my local “normal surfboard” shaper to make a foilboard for me.
I am 5’10" and 175 lbs (178cm 80kg)
My brand new baby is a Takuma Kujira Helium 1500
buy a 6’ 45L foamie board for $150ish
chop off about 1 foot of the nose.
Add a layer of spray foam to get volume up to 40L if necessary.
Install direct screw holes mounted in Fir wood 2x6 (instead of a foil track)
take pictures of it
and, finally, crash it into rocks
Does anyone have recommendations or advice?
Should I be doing 1 board for pumping on days with 0 inch - 12 inch tall waves, and a different board for prone surfing 12 inch - 36 inch waves?
Any thoughts on using direct screw holes versus mounting twin longboard fin tracks? Do you guys adjust your foil mount position a lot or just find the sweet spot and always mount it there?
