I like a board that handels well in the surf. Running and gun is fun too , but I find its really fun to drive the board in and out of the waves.
Good luck to you surfcurls!

Just a heads up - I have requested a NEW Category for the RC Surfers - should be a new tab between the General Discussion and the Airboat Categories.

With any luck this should be in place in the next couple of days.

This thread will then be moved into that category.

My,my, we have grown up!

Our own category!


metaldog and kmot will be pleased!

Hi Hugh,

Need some of your Pro advice:
We are experiencing some delamination with the carbon fiber fins.
Not major, but noticeable to a trained eye.

The cloth seems to not want to saturate as well as normal 6oz fiberglass
even thou we wet it major on both sides.

The weave is a little bigger that we would like, and may be the Prob?

Any ideas on using Carbon would be great, and email me
some product you think would work from your firm
I want to keep it Local US.

3" is the width we are using, but a Big (loose) weave.

Mahalo

Jock - (AKA) Maui Crew. Big Shout out - HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!
I remember the 1st Phone call we shared years ago, and it was Full on Stoke For Stoke For Us Both !

Kite:
Turns out Matt - JAW is working hard to advance Rc Surfing onto the mother ship of RCU.
I got a great email from him today on his idea to make a new thread that will be ALL our own with categories, like Canz thought of.

Lets all keep the stoke and respect for what Matt does, and not take offense if he (The Moderator)
feels he has to step in to keep things in the right direction, Heck I've been edited a few times at least.
But I respect Matts Judgement, and I know he is supporting Rc Surfing to the Max.

Like YPC states " Keep The Stoke"

There is more Growth stoke in Rc Surfing than any one individual or company could satisfy.
Good to know we have a few working to satisfy the questions and needs of others
to continue to build the hobby across the globe. Wombarra boards should be out soon too.
so there is a lot to enjoy moving forward. "There is no bad day Rc Surfing"

Hughengland.... I too wonder what the crescent cut outs do.

On NQD they have a very sharp edge rail so I filledthem inwith foam rounded the rails then glassed to get a softer rail mid length....ended up witha board that seems to surf better without grabbing an edge in turns but handles chop worse.... bounces more in chop but carves better in glass if that makes sense..... it also made self righting not so good.... I haven't touched the crescent cutouts on a kyosho foamy i have as the rails are not that hard...

I thinkthe cutoutsmean a lot otherwise why would the original dudes have put them in hey and very keen to see how surfcurls goes with his new one.

BTW I too am also looking forward to a more better site on RCUhopefully makeing it easier for us allto share and find info relateing to all apects of rc surfing like Cananzitried to do a while back...

BTWagain.... thanks Justaddwata for thinkin of us.

Curlz,
Thanks, another year older, OUCH..
I remember the call, seems like it was a simpler time for RCSurfing back then.
You must be very excited about your new protype. Can't wait to see it in action.
Thanks again, Jock

Aloha Jef in Brazil,
Welcome - you have my kinda waves down there in Sao Paulo - thick & powerful.
Be nice to your photo buddy - so you can treat us to more of your great wave shots.

Today I had a good evening session in 4 to 6 ft rising North Swell beach break at a place called Ironwoods.
Tomorrow they are calling for 10-12ft - I work all day, then hope to get some big ones after work, MJ says he will join me.

Hello all !!   Weather is getting Stormy here in the North East. We are batting down the hatches. I hope my beach is still there after the storm.
Surfer dude is safe on the shelf. I think he will ride this one out. 
Be safe everyone!

PP

Concept is good....the specs show that there is no zoom and the resolution is quite low...320 x 480

With no zoom...you would try to zoom in post production...but no resolution will leave you with a pretty bad image.

save your money for something a little better.

Hi to all - well I've been in drydock for a bit but just got done with a rebuild of my old faithful surferdude.I did somesuttle hull shapechanges and a new paint job to make MJ happy ( He claimed I wasn't visible enough) The paint actually looks more like a speedboat than a surfboard. That should makeMr. Wata Happy. ( did we get a new title page ???)
The big improvement is the new custom builtsingle stick 2.4 GHz, pistel grip 3 or 4 axis radio. The stick has rudder by twist on the knob andcontrol of the Dude and a 4th ( elevator) control with the stick movement. Throttle is on the trigger in rear. Hopefully give her a test tomarrow. Welcome to to the new guys !! Aloha, Karl
