Stop building black boards!
I'd just like you to know I'm genuinely scared! I invested more than 2000 Euros on a lovely, sleek superlight Phantom 380 board and I am now horrified! No matter how good care I take of it (believe me, I am no teenager throwing it around), it seems to be willing to make a new hole very time I get it in the water! Plus, I can't leave it anywhere near a winter's sun, as the slightest sunray gets its dark grey body warming up pretty quickly and opening the valve makes a "TSCHHHHHH" sound that sounds pretty worrying. No delamination so far but I would definitely not mind 200 grams of extra weight if it was to be painted white. I wonder if insurance covers delamination. Apart from that, the board ROCKS!
