directional

Posted: October 22, 2009 in Uncategorized

Here is my latest project a 5’7″ fish. All those years building windsurfers has come back to haunt me….Back to the future.

Core is 1.5lb eps and mahogany 0.6.mm veneer skins.

Bottom layup.

Here she is with strap inserts sanded and ready for a hotcoat.

Put in the probox quad fin box. Nice system with templates that align and hold during rein infusion.

After sanding the boxes flush and a little PU shine. Added the coaster LOL.

Bare board 6lbs! If she snaps I can add some stuff but I will jump first run.

Kim hates it!

    Nice work. Have learned a lot this past summer on the surfboard with all the light conditions. Think you will find it less efficient, but more fun than the door. Nothing goes like your door, but the furf is just so free and fun.

      Hey Brent What are the dimensions of your surfboard? I made this fish with very little rocker up to the front foot are so it should plane quite well. Time will tell. Cheers Stan
