Latest project

Started this board today. 4'1"x 21" thickness to be determined. Bottom needs to be fine tuned and then I'll turn the rails. It has a 6" concave channel running down the center of the board, starts at 1/8th" deep to 1/2" deep through the tail. The rest of the board has belly the rest of the way. The deck will be spooned out and I plan on going pretty deep with that. Rails will be pinched hull style and running it finless.

Pez,

Interesting looking board.

I went pretty thin on my last board - viewtopic.php?f=4&t=710

I'm getting another board, basically the same but thicker, with less deck scoop. After my Indo trip I realised the thin board, was great in tubes but was a bit short of speed. The shaper reckoned , go wider or thinner. I elected to go a bit thicker. The thin boards I have lack stability in certain conditions, e.g if a tube section collapses. The bonzer I have just ploughs through, the thinner boards seem to lose the momentum. My other thin board is just a speed machine but not a tube rider.

I look forward to seeing how it turn out.

We don't have any tubes here it just a mushball. :D In the center I have some foam to work with, I was thinking going to an 1" thick in the center but may leave some foam. My other boards that I did concave decks on were a lot thicker. Have to see how it goes.

Here's the bottom contours. Finished it this morning came out pretty good, I didn't concave the deck as much as I wanted. But the bottom is about what I had invisioned in my mind.

I've had it out a couple times nothing to great, I'm a bit out of rhythm having spent the last month in Vegas. Got one on Saturday that I felt connected to the wave. I think the bottom came out good. I'll see if I can get some pics of the finished bottom and rails.
