    Default XXXtreem Bends

    Roarockit and Kevin from Ambitious (he is a bearing professional up here in Canada) pulled a 1 1/2", nine layer drop out of the bag last week. The bend is wicked to say the least.

    Ted- I think it's fair to assume these were made with a standard TAP bag and hand pump system, correct? Will you have this technique documented on your blog once tested?

    Thanks-

    Thanks-

    yes, in fact this was made with a standard roarockit vacuum kit. the bends were very extreme just past 45 degrees which makes everyone happy !

    the board with the de-wedge was done in one lay up, it is 8 plys,
    the board that is just a 1 1/2 " drop board is 9 plys done in two lay ups

    yes sir!!!
    when i was designing this board for our build i wanted to build something like an evo but easier to use for people who hadnt used a de wedged board before. so i took 5 degrees out of the back (17 degrees totall angle) rather than the evos 22 degree dewedge

    it definietly came out very smooth. we did all 8 plys in one lay up.

    the drop board is nice , almost like a ly switch. the other baord is like a ly evo but only 9 INCHES WIDE!!!! making it impossible to not have the concave involved in your stance somehow !!!

    Evo's have a 15 degree wedge/dewedge, the 22 number from Landy is not correct actually...

    what spot are you measuring from cause i keep getting 22 when i measure it out.
    now im interested.
    none the less the board is 5 degrees less than the actual board itself as it was HEAVILY used in the planning process for the wedging

    Damn. Major props to Kevin. Is Kevin Kmoney?

    Anyways, those are some amazing boards. Vacuum bag is a powerful tool in the right hands. I'm just getting the hang of it.

    I was doing some calculations ankd I now want to tal to my local community indoor pool to see if I can press a board at the bottom of their pool... in the name of science of course!

    I calculated I could get about 25psi. Which is a significant step up from from atmospheric. I was talking to David from other planet trucks and he suggested I find a pool filled with mercury. Wish that existed because I could get about 250psi in one of those.
