First of all I would like to thank all the website users for their advices and responsiveness. It has been one year since I discovered Efoiling and I am eager to finally build mine thanks to all of you!
The board I would like to build would be small enough to have fun after having mastered how to lift.
I am planning to go for a 1250X600X120mm board. Hope those dimensions will be enough to evolve gradually.
I have bought and glued 3 boards 1250X600X60mm.
Next step consists in shaping the block with a homemade hot wire and sanding paper.
I still have some questions for you guys:
-I am planning to buy the Gong box (https://www.gong-galaxy.com/en/product/gong-mount-track-box-reinforced-for-top-plate/) What are your thoughts about this product? I have seen some boards on this forum using it, seems correct.
-I bought two aluminium profile that I wanted to insert on the back of the board in order to stiffen it. I would fill them with wood or even expansive foam.
-As I read some topics, I noticed that a great majority used vacuum pump when applying fiberglass and carbon fiber. Is it mandatory? If yes, I was planning to buy this one:
Would it be ok according to you?
Hope to hear from you.
Wishing you a good Week-end.
