I wanted to post an update on this board, as we did the original concept board build here on Wakeboarder.com. That was back in late 2008 and early 2009. I approached Ed and asked him if it would be ok to document the original build and he graciously gave me permission. You can read all of that from back in the day here on Wakeboarder.com http://forums.wakeboarder.com/viewtopic.php?t=79787]here. and I also just bumped that thread.
If you have followed along with another build, we made some changes in the construction in late '10, but didn't prefer the ride to the original. The IS Flyboy is a molded shape, which allows for an exact duplicate of the original board. Inland isn't known for their fins and toe and cant orientation, but they got that wired in this board. The final weight is really close to the boards I was hand making and our first year production boards, in the area of about 5 pounds.
For everyone that followed along during the original builds, thanks so much!
And some pictures of James riding one of the first production boards. _________________ Buy my kid's board!
We took Taylor out with us on the board. Poor guy, we taught him how to wakesurf over a year ago and he hasn't ridden since and we make him ride backside! This picture is of his second 30 minutes of riding ever. _________________ Buy my kid's board!
