I build nearly only carbon skis (or carbon/flax mix now) and never had that issue - about 50% of the mold's camber is in the final ski. But I use a very slow curing resin to ensure even temperature wh ...

AFAIK flax has great dampening properties, and I think dampening along the length of the ski is more important than torsional dampening, hence I use thin Uni flax and normal triax/biax carbon. I love ...

Hi,

1) you will never get the base perfectly flat with a belt grinder (only possible with a stone grinder), but you can achieve very good results nevertheless.

2) The more pressure you apply, th ...

PostForum: Ski/Snowboard Design and Layup   Posted: Sat May 06, 2017 12:02 pm   Subject: Wood for cores preference
My 2 woods are ash and poplar - because I can get them easily.

My standard core is poplar in the middle and 2 ash stringers next to the sidewalls. In my idea the stronger wood along the sidecut hel ...

That ski is great! The only thing I don't like: Its not immune to rocks, (As any other ski). Have a look yourself:

Excessive camber definitely causes chatter, had that issue in some other builds which had more camber than planned.
