Unfortunately it was raining here too. The "Föhn" winds brought us warm temperatures and rain :/

As for the epoxy fully curing. I usually leave my board to cure for about 5 days before I cut the flash and finish them. Some epoxies can take up to 7 days to fully cure depending on the conditions.

For a heat cure epoxy I would recommend Sicomin Greenpoxy with their SZ8525 hardener. They are a french company, so should be easy to get in france.

Still raining?

Ok thanks! I will let them cure longer then!
I ordered some Sicomin sa 8525. I was already using the Surf Evo Clear and Greenpoxy from them but I hadn’t found the 8525 yet. I had it sent to a friend’s house just over the border in France.

Here’s my latest board finished. I put a bunch of flax and carbon in there. I haven’t ridden it yet but I think this one is the best one yet. This would be my 5th board but I taught 2 friends how to make one in my shop so 7 total but I made 5 of them. It is coming along and I’m enjoying it!

Fortunately not! No new snow either though haha.

The new board looks great...the wavy parts of the flax/carbon almost look like wood grain.

Great picture, is was in Val d'Isère ?
séjour de ski Courchevel, France
Ce serait certainement un défi de skier les 600 km des Trois Vallées de Courchevel en un week-end, mais il est bon de viser haut.
L'Hôtel Olympic, l'hébergement de courte durée de Ski Solutions, est situé dans la ville très prisée de Courchevel 1850, à une minute des pistes. Indispensable si vous voulez couvrir tout ce terrain.

Thanks! No, that was in Les Crosets, Suisse.

Yesterday was the last day of the season here and here’s the last board I built this year. I tried some wood veneer for the first time. It came out pretty good!

These are from a few weeks ago on the second to last board with the flax and carbon.

Thanks for the tip on the Sicomin sz8525! That stuff is so much easier to work with than all the others I’ve tried. I really like it! It cures so fast at 90*.

Cheers! Glad you like it!

Nice new board...looks like it has a little "spoon" in the nose?
