This is such a great place for the DIY. My project started from scratch in August with building my board.My idea was to create a hollow medium sized wooden surfboard. First goal was to float👍.
As you can see, my mast was pretty amateur and the foil the same. I’m currently reworking the mast- I will post when I have it updated.
I was pretty happy with outcome of the board- sealed it with teak oil and then marine spar urethane. I tried the board/ foil in early September as a tow behind the boat before the boat was put away for the summer. I believe the mast was my downfall - I could stand up on the board but no matter how how far back I was on the board, it would nose dive with slight increase in speed. I believe I had too much drag on the mast. I’m also improving the foil now that I’m finding more information out there to go on. I have a video on the water- just can’t upload.
