  • Been thinking about this project for a while and I think I am ready for the challenge. There are a few aspects that make me a little nervous but I am going to try anyway.

    Cologero has been nice enough to lend me this board for a week so that I can make the templates.



    Here are the specs:

    Yater noserider from the mid sixties

    9' 8" x 3 1/4" x 22 3/4" x 18' x 15"

    nose rocker 4 1/4", tail rocker 3 3/4". Weight 20 lbs.


    This is what I have so far:

    Yes it is, it is absolutely symmetrical. Very nicely shaped. If I pull this off and mine rides half as well as the original I will be stoked.

  • I have my doubts about a hollow noserider I see why theoretically it might work but in reality it might not.

  • Marke E - looks like a great project!!  I also just started another one, a 6'4" single fin fish.  When I finish this one up...I'll be looking to do something like what you just started.  I've been thinking about a nose-rider for a while.  The last hollow wood I built was the 8' concave nose - I can definitely get up on the nose with her...but another couple of feet wood be nice on those small NY days. 

    Good luck - and keep us posted! 

    I have my doubts about a hollow noserider I see why theoretically it might work but in reality it might not.

    onefin...not sure your right.  My last hollow wood works pretty well when I'm on the nose.  Whats in your head...I wanna hear your theory!?  ;D

    ps...a.k.a uponone on the 'other' site.

  • That is a sweet  board, I remember you making that one.

    This will be my third hollow wood board and the most challenging because I am doing a rolled bottom and deck. I only want to build up the last 1/2" of the rails with ply. I am going to have to use a vacuum bag to clamp the skins on because there are too many compound curves for it to be clamped. Not sure if it will work, the last time I vacuum bagged a hollow it collapsed.

  • Very tricky!  Using the vacum back would definitely make the skins suck to the ribs, but so much risk...as you already know!  You sure you can't clamp it...you'd be suprised what you can do with some wedges and imagination.  Only problem is...your going to need about four hands! 

    That picture makes me wanna cry!

  • When the deck collapsed it made a noise like a gun shot, I nearly jumped out of my skin. That board was relatively simple beacause although the deck was crowned the bottom was flat so I could clamp the bottom and then I only had to vac bag the deck.

  • I'm excited to watch this unfurl.

    as someone who might as well have little feet for hands - this is truly impressive to me.

  • Buoyancy is a good thing to much isn't.  Surftech's are notoriously crappy noseriders because they are to bouyant and therefore ride above the wave as opposed to in the wave.  One of the critical aspects of noseriding is the commitment of the rail in the face.  As the water goes over the tail through following the rail line, the tail or back third gets sucked into the wave.  The water of the tail is what allows you to nail those tens, fives, or just to be on the front third of the board.  Is it absolutely necassary, no, I can noseride my 5'5" fish, but it helps in achieving lengthy tip time.  The best noseriders ever produced, Con Ugly, Nuuhiwa Bing, or Takayama Bing were all heavy and the reason being was to create that fine balance that allows long trips to the tip.  I find most high performance LB's dont allow for tip time becuase of the lack of weight and inability to just glide without slipping ass out.  I also think that a hollow board will give you tail slide and not allow the fin to engage when on the tip because the board has so much float.  There are other reasons but I will get back to you on those.

  • Isn't boyancy volume divided by mass. My board should have the same volume and weigh the same if not more than the Yater.
