Has anyone played with making a carbon fibre deck or seen any web sites about it?

Not with skateboards but when I was drumming I tried out a pair of carbon fibre drum sticks.
Yes they are pretty much unbreakable but they completely destroy your skins and cymbals.

I wonder how miuch flex you would get out of a carbon fibre deck.

Hi Dave,

A problem I have at the moment is where to get some of the vacuum bagging materials,

Vacuum sealing tape,
Perforated film,
Breather cloth.

I've got a guy down the road that stocks the carbon fiber and resin but none of the above.

Thanks,

FGI fiberglass in brookvale sydney should be able to help , they supply to the marine industry !
if not CARBATEC AUSTUSTRALIA ( industrial machinery supplies ) they can supply small vac bag systems thet are big enough to do vac boards "with a hand pump " !

Hey thanks Dave, looked up FGI and they have a place here in Adelaide, so I’ll check them out. Looks like they have lots of good stuff.

I checked out the Carbatec stuff, it’s available up the road too, it looks good but I’m hoping to make my own set up (I need a hobby Smile.

Hi Dave,

Any ideas for a light core material, 5~6mm thick? Blue foam perhaps?

Cheers

FGI has all the high density foams & hollow cell ( way better but needs to have sidwalls) , it's verry costly $ 300 for 6 downhill boards worth of 12mm foam .
only the high density foam is strong enough to take impact
