Fishy stuff

Any discussion on shaping, designing, repairing and riding surfcraft of any type or shape. Also a good place to ask the 'what board should I buy?' question.

This finless board with a weird kind of tail looks mad but would it work??

and why would you have a different fin set up for each side of a board what would that do ??

i guess they are fins but horizontal ones which dig directly into the face

not easy to see how that is so differnt to a very hard rail

hydrology experts ?

it got a few dings in transit to the fry, but it was super clean. the color work was impeccable. still not sure exactly how they did it, but it was stunning.

and paul was just like, " yeah, it's nice huh?" super humble and stoked to be there.... mucho repsect for him.

the board that won, from jp, was amazing too. orange tint, sweet enough to drink. like you soaked it in Fanta...

Paul didn't have the white one, he left in in Portugal for promotion reasons, he did have some other ones there though and they are lush, some amazing glass work.

apparently he is working on some ideas with carbon fibre It will be interesting what he comes up with

yeah, that's danny hess. Master carpenter, and shaper. Ridden by guys like Dan Malloy, etc...

his boards are eps cored, but its more if a skeleton than blank. the skins are glued on i think, then glassed with epoxy, although there are some in polyester.

that one is tinted, which is cool....

check his site out:

Been there already. His tinted boards are beautiful...they retail for muchos!! :cry:

i wonder how hard they would be to replicate...i guess teh hardest part would be forming the right curves for the rails...i mean, without his original molds...

no,id say you could make rail moulds with bent plywood and a jigsaw.i think it would be harder to get the foam core and deck to fit perfectly inside the rails

would it be easier to shape them from foam first and add the wooden rails after though?,then plank the deck?

i don't know for sure, but i think hess uses jigs for his rails, then glues the foam frame inside. i am also assuming he is hotwiring his foam, so in reality, once he's knows the rocker he wants, he just cuts it out of a block of eps, traces the inside of his rail bands onto the foam, and cuts it out. presto....

that is of course a very simplified version :wink:
