Both those boards look good. I guess a lot depends on how experienced you are and how easily you can get from your stomach to feet. If you have experience go as small as possible.
I have designed a board with the following dimensions: 5’ (150cm) x 62.5cm x 12cm
I might even try get the board down to 10cm thick if my new design for the foil tracks work well.
We are still constructing some parts of the board.
But we are nearly finished. We had to constructed it in detail, because we will cnc the board.
If everything goes well there would be less need for sanding after cnc.
At the moment I am also searching for a company in Austria which will carbon infuse the board after cnc.
The plan is to make 3 boards. One for me and two friends.
And if the result is good and it’s not to expensive maybe we can offer a few boards to someone who can’t build a board by himself.
Anyway, I already order the blanks and I think in the next weeks we will have the finished cnc board.
Hey guys this how the board look like now. I didn’t sand it yet, also need to add the sealings, all the holes and the mat and white paint on the top side of the board.
The board size is 170 cm and 100 Liters of volume (I don’t plan to change the battery so the opening is under the board for more safety).
I built it only using a drill as a power tool and I shaped it on a drying rack lol The core I used is from glued xps insulation board. I only needed to make 8 cuts (with hot wire) and some sanding, so it’s ultra easy to shape the board (and super cheap too) !
