Ripped up my latest build

Post by Jdline »

So i just ripped my latest build apart to see how the inside looks like.

Its a beech en pauwlina core, flax en carbon lay up, and a oak wood veneer topsheet.
I put the ski in a buckle and started bending it till it broke.
I did not expect the core to brake so soon ( about 60°)

Not enough epoxy on the flax it seems.
And not a good bond between the carbon and the core,also not enough epoxy?

What are you guys' thoughts?
