Just finished and tried my new collapsible surfboard, and thought let's show it to the swaylockers.
I started this project some time ago because I wanted to take my board with me on hollidays. Here, in the netherlands we don't have the best waves and sometimes me and the family take a trip to other european countries with (possible) better waves. However one can never be sure, and to take a board (costing at least an extra 50 euro) with the rest of the luggage, the kids luggage and then fit it al in the bus, plane, small rental car etc, only to discover there are no waves, feww..
So I googled a lot, looked around here on sways, collected all kinds of ways and ideas to build a collasible one. In the end I decided to go the backyard route. No high tech materials for this guy, but I thought of a simple method every boardbuilder can use to make one. foam, wood, glass, resin.
here's pictures of the finished product 5'8" x 22" x 2,5" biscuit type small wave board
This board can be stored in a bag I made for it, and I can take it on the plane for free.
It has already been to Spain (barcelona) and back without any problems. Big fun to see it comming on the luggage belt.
If there are people interested in the build process I can post a small "how to". I took some pics while building this thing.
