I started building a wakeskate last summer but got delayed from work so I put it on pause. I had already built a frame and I was in the process of layering the ply part. Now I need to know if I use regular wood glue (personally I don't think this will work...) or if I should use epoxy. The only reason I don't want to use epoxy is because I hear it is a beach to work with but if it will defiantly work better then I will use it. If you guys want me too I can do a full step-by-step intruction how i will build mine.

I used epoxy when I built mine, worked great. Wasn't too bad to work with - was at first but then it wasn't bad.

epoxy or polyester resin will work fabulous, put sheet metal in side you r mold so it doesn't bond itself to the wood, and out an ass load of carnuba wax on the metal before you put your plys in

k to the c, welcome to wakeskating.com, we may now tear you a new one. dont call a mod a flick to start. second, there are plenty of topics on bord building, WWSA has put step by step instructions on here, and they are still here so search for them. IMO shape the board last....after its together. also you make the "curve" by making a frame, which jankyzep was talking about, once again this is in the tutorial that i believe WWSA put together.


and also dont be an ass.

Mr. Top Hat, I have a dream that one day the search button will not be ignored and people will take a small hint like a link to it seriously without a big bug crawling up their ass that someday there will be plentiful newbs but no n00bs to be found. . . . . . . .and then this hot chick I know leaps onto my bed naked and says do me. . . . . . .I have a dream. . . . Birthday
