After 8 completed boards I am ready to shake of my n00b status build 10 is on my radar (9 is a torqueboard deck and enclosure) my next step is to start building my own enclosures, excluding the psychotiller enclosure on “The Kraken” prebuild enclosures have always been a massive compromise. There are some amazing eclosure builders I look up to and wish I had just an ounce of there mojo. (Big Ben, LHB, eboosted) But using them for most of my self funded build would break the bank. I tried kenex and the results were subpar. I settled on epoxy CF for build 10 the epoxy is easy to find on local suppliers (Gold Coast has a fugton of boat builders) but finding CF on a rol at a decent price has been a challenge. I made the mistake of ordering 5 metres from china and i came folded with the weave all fuqed up. Despide claming it came on a roll. Do you guys know a reliable source of CF thay ships to Oz?
Yes I have also found it difficult to find a local supplier with CF at reasonable prices.
I was somewhat hoping that @jeffwuneo may be able to.provide us with a legitimate contact for carbon fibre and other composite supplies
why not try thermoforming some abs? that stuff is also easy to get in aus, ebay to be exact
I have bought from AliExpress. To nz. On a roll. Has all been good
Yes friend. We have machine for making carbon fibre.
ABS is inferior in my opinion, prone to breaking at stress points. Fight me.
When I am ready to purchase I will get in touch Jeff thanks mate!
This is going to be a mountain board hybrid using my 40 inch superspud deck, some mountain trucks and trampa wheels and wedges. Strength is key. It will also share the monster battery I built for build 9 - adhd board (working title) 50.4V 32000Mah it weighs a ton.
No one is going to fight you for being absolutely right…

Have you looked into a Roarockit kit?
I would love to try it. @Linny did you end up getting one?
Unfortunately no, i ended up spraying my deck. The price waaaas a bit on the high side for what i planned to only use once, and shipping was heavy too.
