Water Time

It was a fin-foiling kinda morning. This one is partially quilted Maple, 9.75”. It’s only sanded to 120 at this point— when it hits 600 grit and gets glassed the figuring is going to POP. Should be awfully purty (and a helluva longboard fin). It’s one of a couple options I’m carving for an old Santa Cruz buddy and his new log. Up next— milling up some figured Walnut. Stoked!

Goodbye beard.

Tarantino (Cedar) surfboards in progress. A 5’-8” mini simmons in the foreground, and Tris working on a 6’-6” singlefin in the back. Dogger, looking on.

Dawn patrol in boardshorts under overcast skies. Life is good.

My developing opinion as regards surfboards, their materials and performance:

Wood > Foam

Newbie for the study library and I’m stoked! 6’-10” Liddle.
