it's going to be a month from my second attempt on a bamboo board. <BR>needed to say that it was much more successful than the first time <BR>and it didn't end up melting the board. bamboo is more of a grass than the wood, <BR>so veneers can be made much thinner and while it's along the grain, it bends <BR>easily around rails. the strength of the veneer must be equal at least to a layer <BR>of 6 oz glass, because i still can't find any heel dents on the deck that is <BR>2 oz e-glass + bamboo + 5 oz s-glass. it's a bit heavier then the glass, <BR>but looks much better <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> the bottom is 5 oz. there are no hd foam or otherwise <BR>reinforced rails, but i think it still can be called a timberflex board <BR>(<a href="http://www2.swaylocks.com/node/1029134" target="_blank">http://www2.swaylocks.com/node/1029134</a>). <BR>and probably the best thing about it is that it rides almost as i wished it did. <BR> <BR>bagging <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/732651.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR>bottom <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/732652.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR>top <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/732653.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR>petr testing it <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/87668/732654.jpg" alt="Upload">

I like the wood , Rock liked it too. It looks like the wakesurfer's are building boards better than the Wake Board company's low performance high priced models,

I like to watch water drops how they run over the wood as I ride. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
