I hope I can add some 'value' to your awesome board/surfer - I have learnt much of what you have all shared.
I am very happy with my "Bro" he weighs all of 80 grams - is very flexible and I reckon he will take a few good 'wipe outs' ................I have devised a good Velcro system to fix him to the board - whats surfing with out putting your Velcro around your ankle.
He is totally secure on the board - but - still flexible at the fixed points which also inhibits stress.
I really like your Carbon/glass work. ( I was wondering were your knowledge came from) So - Sailing for umteen years around the world and owning a Glass supply company - has to have something to do with it.............
Man ! - the world is a small place - We have a farm in the Eastern Cape ( Queenstown ) 300 k's North West of Grahamstown - I am heading their this weekend for business ( 1000k's from Cape Town)
We have plenty of family in Port Alfred - Good Pier brake- my sister in law studied at Rhodes University 1993 - 1996 ( Grahamstown)
I spent many years Jet Sking in your Sisters Neighborhood - a spot called "Doodles" you should know it.
We live way South - Muizenberg - about 40 k's away from Blouberg. Blouberg will be a great place for some fast - hollow - deadly shore break X-TREME rc surfing - It will be a great crowd puller !
I am semi retired since 2007 ( sold a manufacturing company) I "Home school or kids" - Build 'hand made' specialised 1/4 scale racing rc F1 Gas Outboard Tunnel hulls - Outboard drives and tuned pipes - motor modifications (mainly Export)
Perhaps well be successful enough to add our rc 'Bro' surfer to our products.......................................... .........
Look forward to sharing our surfing en devours with you - perhaps sometime you will visit your sister in SA - we could hook up for sure
Again -Thanks for the great info - action - photos you have shared - it has gone a long way in getting me this far .
