Strapless air in super stormy and rainy conditions. This Surfboard is the perfect toy to play, jump and surf!

Spread your wings and fly. 
Today I will wrap this wing with some carbon and put it in the vacuum bag. Pushe the thumb that everything is alright.

Because of my injury I can't work and Kite so I started a project wich I was thinking for a long time. Since I have seen Kai Lenny pumping with a foil I wanted to make my own wing. Yesterday my Brother and I cutted the wing with a hot wire out of a eps block.  It was a bit tricky for me because I still have crutches. But It came out great. The profile (TL54) is from a Monowing glider and I think it should be easy to pump this wing on flat water or surf some small waves from boats at our swiss lakes. 
The Horue foiler is photoshoped in the wing for some colors😀

That's the way how all the high quality boards from riftboards are made. All boards are made in the vacuum bag to get the highest quality possible. This are no serial boards. These are handmade artwork!

Wish you all a very good start in this new week! I know that mondays can suck but in a few days you are on the water again. I have to wait at least 6 Month until my knee injury is healed. Hope I can start shaping in a few weeks again to bring a smile on people faces when they get their new board. This is @stankeusch with his new 5.2 strapless freestyle convertible Surfboard.
