Had this going round in my head for a while now and not had the chance to shape it.
Full board concave
very little nose rocker
lots of tail rocker and a sharp kick in last 2"
also been working on a new fish as ive been doing a good few wide fishes since Rich was here.
So streamlined it a good bit
Ciaran ordered two boards from me a few weeks ago finally got on to glass them.
ciaran was after a 10ft wingnut style piggy board 22" wide only stipulation on colour was gotta have some red in it.
red bottom tint, yellow tinted inlay, resin panels, pins and gloss
He also wanted something smaller to get him off the longboards and maybe use for travelling
came up with a desert island type board 7'9"
cream tinted bottom, intricate swirl inlay, pins and gloss
did a good few other boards in feb, but the were just plain so they dont get on here.
heres another funky little 5'9" 5 finner
since collection it has been down to france and spain
heres a quick report from the owner.
went really well - had a little trouble getting into the larger stuff, more me than the board though! Rode it in 1ft peelers to good head high stuff and worked really really well. Still pretty loose with quad in, but think I prefer it tri...need more time on it.
love it! managed to ding it though :-( indent on the top left near the rail..but thats life!
