Yup its official I am a board builder now. The first Stick is out of the Board room and Loose on Da Reef. It took about a year to accomplish from idea/design to the water but it was soo worth the time and effort. It turned out looking sweet and performs better than I ever could imagine. It’s got me really excited for future projects. Ya, Ya I know! The first one is a Kitesurf board and I hardly kite anymore. Well the first reason I chose to start with a kiteboard is they are pretty small “size wise” and of course I am making lots of mistakes figuring out the best construction techniques, so that helps save time/money. The second reason is, I have never really liked any of the Kitesurf boards I have owned or demoed, but I had many ideas on how to make them fun and rip and so far I have succeeded. Not sure if it’s by luck or I actually know a little bit about shapes. Either way, this first board is by far the best Kitesurf board that I have ever ridden on Da Reef. Its going to be a fun winter.
P.S. I am on Instagram now and am always posting lots of “Hot off the press” Pics. http://instagram.com/casey_treichler_dareef/
