Fortunately...

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.

Fortunately...

Postby The Decorator » Fri Jul 20, 2012 5:24 am

I have a room to use and an experienced shaper to keep an eye on me but not to molly coddle me. He won't touch it!

Wanted a stretched out Hypto Krypto for bigger days when the 5'6 starts getting a bit sketchy off the bottom.

6'0 x 19 3/4 Wide point 1" forward. Roll/flat to single to slight vee from middle of front fins to tail. Taken a lot out of the rails compared to original.

Well spotted Kayu. Bart seems to think they are good blanks, high density compared to most eps.

Still undecided about fins but leaning towards a 2+1 just 'cos I have plenty of thrusters/quads already!

Hopefully glassing next week if I have time.

Bart gets 'em from some bloke called John who works it by weight. Blanks come 7'6 only and he rejects anything below 2.15kg most are around 2.3 They're pretty hard though some are tough to put a dent in. I never knew they lost weight after popping out though. Apparently steam used in the blow takes time to evaporate. Bad news is the company are up in the air a bit at the mo though.

Typically after making my very first board it goes flat so yet to ride it; but here it is any way!
Experimented with a resin tint from powdered food colouring but after fixing the plugs changed my mind! It would show too many of the snags and tears in the styrene foam so went with wall paint instead!!

Not get wet in Straddie? Next week looks promising....possibly something this weekend too. I'm around saturday morning if you're up for a splash. Can't believe I still haven't got my hull wet. Torture

Really nice board by the way!
