Hi first  time trying to post I was wondering if anyone had seen this longboard sander. It's called Flexisander from Yugoslavia. You will have to search it I can't post a link.

Link:  https://flexisander.com/en/

You can just paste the link into your post and all modern browsers will turn it into an active link nowadays.  No need to use the url tags unless you want a text (like company name) to work like a link.  Here's the same link above, but I used  "url=https://flexisander.com/en/" inside the opening url tag.  PM me if you want better instructions .... typing the tags in here results in a link!

Company name link: Flexisander


As for the sander ... it looks perfect!  Love to hear from someone that has used one!  Nice find and thanks for sharing!

I've seen several homemade ones using laminate, e.g. Wilsonart. This material is flexible just the right amount to handle curved surfaces without being floppy.  Epoxy a handle on each end and use a touch of some kind of weak adhesive to hold the sand paper on or buy the stick-on kind of sand paper.

It's a heck of a lot less expensive than the store-bought ones.
