Pretty much completed!

So today i removed the jigs for the fins. Sanded the fin boxes down smooth with the board, and then sanded the entire board down to a nice smooth finish. Lessons learned?  Plenty!  Don't  use locktight epoxy on the leash plug because it turns yellow. Dont rush the glassing cause you'll forget to sand something.  I already knew it but,  surfboards are defineatly a craft and worth ever penny.

Surfed and installed boxes.

Went surfing today and then started qork on the fin boxes. Surf today was super windy. The wind chill was pretty bad but the water was still easily in the 70°s. I wore a wetsuit and found it wasn't nessesary and also that I'm  out of shape. Surfing with  wetsuit on is some serious work. These pics are of the fin box install. Hope thet come out well. I've never done it before and i felt a little out of sorts doing it. These are pro boxes with a mackee 5 fin set up. Should work well, looking to get alot of built in drive.

Sand coat is on!

Don't know if you you can tell buy i put the sand coat on the bottom today. The sand coat is basiclly the fill coat. It fills in all the fiber patterns in the fiberglass and also makes all the patches that are over the finboxes and logos blend seamlessly.  It also has wax in it. The wax makes the resin sandable when dry. It also makes for a smooth comp sand feel,  just like all the boards at the surf shop.

More from the build.

Just got the logos on.  What do you guys think?  I did away with the G wreath. Stephen thought it was too much like a trophy. I figured i would just go hardcore LA skull style. Let me know what you think. Almost finished!

Glassing has begun!

Just glassed the bottom of the board. I tried a cut lap this time. It looks so much cleaner but takes a hell of a lot longer than free laps. I guess if i keep making boards it'll get quicker. Just a couple more days and this things going to be in the water! I have a new design for my logo... hope everone likes them.

A little work on the foam

Got the plan shape cut out on the huge chunk of foam. This super groveller should float and catch anything. It's 7'0 with a pulled in squash giving it a bump right before the rail fins. Hopefully that will give some control in the pocket, with alot of drive.

New project!

Hey everyone thanks for all the donations! The new surfboard project is going to be a 7'0" funboard super groveller!  Should be able to surf anything from ankle biters to head high! Super stoked, keep checking the blog for updates!
