We are jumping around again in our Flyboy Wakesurf Super Fly super thin wakesurf board build. To refresh everyone’s memory, this Flyboy Wakesurf Super Fly wakesurf board will have a concave bottom, uniform thickness of about 3/4″ with a slight taper at the nose. The rails will be built up and we are using our favorite composite sandwich constructiion techniques. We’re also planning to use our favorite C5/Twinzer’ish fin pod.
We’ll get into some theory concerns later in the week, but for today we want to show that we are using a 6 oz Carbon Fiber as the sandwich layers.
Jumping ahead, we have glued up the first 1/4″ of the rail material. This will provide a nice glue line for both the deck and bottom skins. Also, shaping the core is REALLY hard without some form of reinforcement. Gluing up that first layer of rail material helps hold the rocker and some of the concave. Here are a few close up pictures of our handiwork. The side view.
Looking at the rail from above
This next picture is the heart and soul of this composite sandwich wakesurf board, its the internal layers of carbon fiber.
This is a short unedited clip of laminating the deck skin using 6 oz carbon fiber. This is the carbon fiber we showed above.

We’ve built through the deck surface attachment, we’ll talk more about the whole process in the coming week.
Thanks so much for following along!
