Anyone got any used/ripped urethane kite bladders

Postby windhorny » Wed May 12, 2010 2:20 pm

I am going to use the urethane for a waterproof camera housing i am making. I figured it would be easier to make this than a machined housing with all the knobs and levers. Plus I am not diving, just keeping water out.

I got the idea from this guy if interested.

Really just need a small section of a LE tube. Needs to be large enough diameter to ideally fit a small camcorder. I could however weld the material.

thanks


I will give you a buzz.

is that extra extra little? :)

I specifically need the urethane ones like airtime uses. Not the PVC. Urethane is extremely strong. Although PVC would be easier to weld I want the strength.

Yuri, did you get what you were looking for? I've got a few leading edges, as well as struts if someone else is looking. They're stock though, cabrinha and liquid force, I think among others, not airtime. I can stick one in the car for you, likely to be in Alameda this weekend.
