I guess your plywood boards were inexpensive to make or you would not have
cut them up, because you can make other 1 piece boards, so easily, to replace
Of course, I wouldn't do that to my manufactured boards.
I wonder if a 'portable travel board' should be made for the future by board
That might make it easier to pack our boards in real Golf Bags, since they
to be smaller than 145cm.
(I measured Golf bags before I decided to purchase an NSI fully padded
that could accomodate my 151cm board, which did well in 15- 35mph
winds, I weigh 190lbs)
But now that short, fatter boards have more wind-range, we
can seriously look for 140cm boards or less that are wide enough to
accomodate lighter winds, yet short enough to be smooth in higher winds.
So find what gives the best 'wind range' and travel with it, that
fits IN your 'golf' bags.Don't make them to heavy either (under 70-75lbs) each
Better to have 2 bags at 65lbs each,
then 2 with one at 100lbs and the other at 25lbs.
