Nice. Do you think that setup will allow more or less flex with epoxy? I cant wait
Damian,By nature cedar is more pliable and soft in nature compared to other standard stringer woods available. You will have much more controlled flex due to the way I have layed out the wedge spacing of the stringer. The wedge angle of the outside stringers should “tie” you into the board, the outsides of your knees should line up to the insides of the stringer enabling your turns to feel directly connected to your fins, the fin angle will line up with the angle of the stringer and will all be tied in together neatly and linked to the small wings to create a pivot point off the outline.The center tapered stringer extends 2” above your knees by measuring your pressure dents of your old board, this will help the center flex as you lean or weight into you board but will still keep some strength and resistance in the tail as the shape will have a subtle S deck and pinched down rails so we want to keep is ridgid off the tip of the tail but control the flex from the center.Hope that helps you able to visualized the concept of the stringer lay out…W>
Is the S deck a concave where my needs go? What did the nose rocker measure out as?D
D,By my method of measuring the balanced rocker point, which takes into the consideration the overall volume and deck rocker I measured 6 1/2" nose rocker and 1 3/8" tail rocker.The S-deck is the deck rocker profile that has a pronounced crown that tapers down to a down rail towards the tail with a slight "low pressure" area from appox height of crown to nose area.

I'm diggin the outline on this kneeboard!How will ride as a stand up?
Stand up paddle??!!If you mean a standard surfboard, with some tweaking it would make a fun board to ride, for sure.W>
never seen a stringer setup like that. i love the reasoning behind it too. crazy work wayne
