New year, new board

I started the year off with a nice little custom order. It’s a high performance short board for an intermediate level surfer, a 16th birthday present for a neighbour (and I thought I was the only waxhead in the village). If everything goes according to plan, it should help her take her surfing to the next level.

Messy bottom

Plug installation
Dimensions are as follows: 5’10” x 19″ x 2 3/8″, single to double concaves on the bottom, with a 5-fin set-up. Colour work was done with acrylic paint and the black was all resin – in the lamination on the bottom and as fat-arsed pinlines on the deck.
I wish I could get a chance to try it out before handing it over, but it’s getting picked up tonight.
