So I'll try these cork sheets: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... AQ:AU:1123
They are 0.8mm thick and should not add much more weight than wax.

MrMik , he is retired , but hasnt put the planer down since he picked it up in the 60.s.....(lol)....he has a long waiting list of people who want his boards , but his current mission seems to be educating the local grommets around Noosa , and putting them on equipment that improves both their surfing development , and their understanding of good surfboards...........he also builds complete surboards from shaping to final buff , including hand foiled fins , that put the production ones to shame !...MrMik wrote:kayu wrote:MrMik , you ever get around to putting the cork on the board?........got a mate doing full cork decks now , and the results are pretty good !...
Does your mate make them for sale or just for himself?
