You want to know everything about the manufacture of our kitesurfing boards?
Inobo kitesurfing boards are based on the assembly of a carbon skeleton and a deck. You can now discover how our skeletons are made.
Carbon skeletons are made using prepreg fiber. It is from large rolls of fibres cut by a laser that the different shapes of the skeleton are obtained. Then the different fibre shapes are placed in a mould. He himself placed in a heating press which will then allow him to complete his polymerization. Once the resin has cured, the skeleton will then be cut using a digital milling machine. Once the skeleton has been trimmed, simply sand the contours to remove any burrs that may be left by the milling machine. Just screw on a deck to get a complete kitesurfing board!
The use of prepreg has two advantages. First, the worker has no direct contact with the fibre, there will be no steam emission. Certainly, there are safety standards but they are far from being respected in China where the majority of our kitesurfing boards are made. Secondly, only one material is used: carbon. This is what differentiates Inobo boards from the other twin tip boards on the kitesurfing market. Traditionally, wood is combined with glass or carbon fibre. The disadvantage of its materials is that in case of impact it can involve delamination, i.e. the fibre can detach from the wooden core.
