The next board

I’ve just finished sanding, pinlining and resanding my latest board. It’s a wide-tailed, wide-nosed, high-volume beast related to my Bastard Fish/ Mudskipper. I’m calling it the squashed mudskipper, on account of the squash tail. Dimensions are: 5’10” x 20 x 2.25″

I’m pretty happy with it all told – it’s the best board I’ve made yet and it has all the bells and whistles – concave fabric inlay deck, all kinds of fin options with a quad plugs and a single box, single to double concave bottom contours. It should hold its own in anything from 2-foot onshore summer slop, to overhead and hollow. Here are some pictures…
