In the last post we had shown the MOW specific wakesurfer and the extra foam that we had left on the deck side. On the tail section, we’ve left a small area open where the rail material wraps the rounded part of the tail. We are going to add two more sections of the rail material and when we do that, we’ll overlap these sections withe each subsequent layer. To finish this first layer, we cut and fit a final piece of the high density material and glue that up to the tail of the MOW specific wakesurfer.
Now, we’ve already completed the glue up of the tail section and moved on to the bottom shaping. We want to increase the bottom concave some, we are searching for ways to increase the resposniveness of teh board as well as, generate additional down-the-line speed immediately. That is to say what is commonly referred to as squirt. We aren’t overly concerned with making the board go 15 mph, but we want it to go from 10 to 12 instantaneously! And we want the rail-to-rail to have that same sort of responsiveness. Most likely it will feel “twitchy” to mosy folks, but that’s the ride we are after. A picture of the exaggerated bottom concave.
One last picture for this Monday. We are developing with our normal composite sandwich techniques, but we want to incresae the stiffness of the MOW specific wakesurfer. That stiffness will cause the flex return to be faster, the idea of this MOW specific concave deck wakesurf board is faster, quicker, more responsive so that it can be used in the limited pocket length available.
The weather is changing here in Northern California, so we’ll be moving our building efforts more indoors’ish and using some heat to keep things warm and toasty. Thanks so much for following along, we appreciatre it!
