Anyone ever modify their board by adding additional stringers?
I have a Toobs bomber with one stringer, im thinking about adding two more stringers.
I was thinking about using some fiberglass rods from an old tent, I would cut them down to length and then drll a hole from the back of the board to insert the rods. I have very long flex48 and 72 inch flexi drill bits for drilling out the board. I figure I will just drill it out a bit smaller in diameter of the rod and then insert and then seal off the hole with marine epoxy.
I want my board faster, and I think adding two more stringers should do the trick.
Anyone out there ever try this? My main concern is hoping that the stringer wouldnt be able to come out of the board if I get worked by a big wave, and wind up jousting me in the neck or something.
doesnt sound like a good idea brudda...unless ya got a steady hand. I woulda just got a custom order board from Toobs (they offer 3 stringers). That way you dont F up your good board. I got a Mike Stewart Science MS5 thats a double stringer and that thing is sturdy as sh!t!!!
DUDE DONT GET THE TRIPPLE STRINGER
I have it with a cresent tail and all that..no rocker...I would say if your standing up don't bother it too wide...If your going prone..buy a different model or brand depending on ur size...I went to a number 6 and fell in love with them..way faster then a tubes..one comes in a 43.5 goliathe icon..with 2 carbon fiber stringers, triple concave bottom for like 210...solid board for a bigger guy but has a lot of speed
