  • man, that was fun. hacking up foam dust all day today. what began as a 6'2 roughly hewn blank, ended up as 5 feet 9 inches of my-own-hand-shaped single-fin love. the concaves are a bit lumpy, but really happy with the way it came out. can't wait to get her glassed and put board to wave. big thanks to supreme for his insight, instruction and shaping room.







    for all the work involved in this, i think custom boards are way under-priced. i think everyone should shape one at least once to put board costs in perspective. it makes it much more palatable to cough up the money after seeing what that takes even without glass.

    i think i'll be making another soon.

  • I didn't realize the bottom was that bumpy. You could hit that with some 80 grit to smooth that out and then go back to 150 and then 220. That will sort those bumps right out.

    guess that's what i'll have to do before glass. i didn't notice it until i turned off the light on the right. at that point it was late/cold/hungry. huge thanks again. let me know when you're doing that biofoam order... i've got the bug now.
