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.

My brother and I found a torn up longboard in the middle of the freeway, brought it home, stripped it and reshaped it to the exact dimensions of a '71 Bunger Fish that we had laying around. Thought you all might enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPW2hZStw6o

Yeah it surfs like a dream but it seems to be prone to pressure dings. I've heard that factory blanks are more dense near the surface and that the foam further in is less dense and weaker. Since we had to carve through most of the surface foam we may have weakened the board. Oh well.
