Here it is all finished up. A lot more foam than I'm used to from what I've been riding the past couple years. Pretty happy the way it came out just need to work on my foiling and getting my rails thinner.

2.75 out at the rails 2.5 in the center just guessing. I don't have calipers but I need to get these rails thinner. Have had it out for 3 sessions and it's pretty fast but I'm have trouble sinking the rail. Only been going prone.

I've been giving thought to how to get some volume generally, but have a scoop deck and not too much thickness in the rail.

Nice job, Pes. What kind of deck pad is that?

It's a cove pad, I really like not having to keep waxing the whole board and you can adjust your position and be locked in. Bob thats the problem I'm finding I can't figure out how to thin out the rail without going into where I want to have the deck scooped out.

I was wondering if the deck pad was a Cove Pad... it does not look like the current formulation of deck pads.

It's the new stuff maybe because the grooves aren't colored it looks like the old pads.

Rail thickness....more than one way to skin a cat. Hint: Not all volume needs to be removed from deck to achieve desired rail profile. The G5 is coming....
