I shape...I mean I design that 3D file with the help of Marcelo who told me what he did himself and what he want after his first back yard board. Here is a picture of that board done in action....not bad


So there is a movie of the board I design for him.Please, have a look on that board he is going to build soon.
As I said this design is perfect.... but I still waiting about your own advice about it. Demanding customers make accurate craftman.

Amazing, this shape was perfect. Now I can send to make a reinforced kite wave board, with options to straps eventually. I?m in doubt between 5,4 and 5'5, everybody says in foruns that you should downsize in size and volume when migrating to tomo vanguard?s and Vader?s shapes but I?m still wonder how it would go in ligth wind areas where we need extra buoyancy. I bent to the first file version with 5?5 and 30 litres you have made.
What do you guys would suggest ? I?m about 84kg and use to kiting in 14 to 17 knots.

I found it perfect in a way of drawing because to succeed to organise all the splines like done on this completed file as shown on video it take me 5 years and around 4000 hours working on that 3D program. S3D
And the happy end of this story is that Marcell find the board once built work at perfection to him.
I like to watch how the water flows around the board like I did imagine it would be while designing curves on my computer
Many thanks to Marcell to have believe in this project .

@Kami... nice spot! Do the waves there get any bigger with good head-high tube sections? Serious question.. planning a trip soon.

About the board: yeah really good work there mate. Did you have the sections laser cut or hand made?

NKS - I could be wrong but it looks like Barra da Tijuca just south of rio. I kited it like this anyhow.
just a beachie, does get over head but is more sloppy and up to slabby beach break when there is swell - check out previous WSL surfing comps there

not the best wind nor wave kiting in brazil, but probably has its days
