Plywood Kiteboard Experiment # 2

I got 1 run on my new board on Saturday. It felt like it was spinning out a little but I wasn't sure.

Stormchaser, 132 x 41

I had fun with the spray gun again but if the board doesn't work then it's just nicely painted junk.

1/2" rocker, a lot of flex, maybe too much

This one was even cheaper than the first. The pads cost $5 for set, fins were $40 for set, screws, paint, epoxy didn't add up to much, straps were from a defunct windsurfing board, wood was 2 pieces of 1/4" birch scrap from making cabs in the shop.
