Understood on the need for stringers K-H20, I am using them for structure for an extruded track that will be recessed into the deck...this will be a longboard design with a dude that can nose ride!
Ooohh yea, bottom turns, wait for the section, get up high on the wave and send him to the nose!
The extruded track will be glassed into the board, the figure will travel via Dyneema cords run to a sail winch drum, will be using a 2-stick 2.4GHZ Xmitter on this one.
The plans I drew include a concave nose section and a rocker design that I think will work well.
The stringers also allow me to build the blank in sections with the rough rocker shape all cut in with my band saw then laminated before shaping.
Obviously the figure will have a different stance than the ones out there now, more vertical, longboarder stance, fun stuff eh?
