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.

Possibly the most positive thing you contributed to this forum, hope your family pat you on the back, if they need to. Just my opinion of course.

It 'goes without saying' really but sometimes it's good to say these things anyway.

That doesn't sound like it's from him... or he's lost his edge. Either way, yes that's a nice way to look at it, thanks for your response Mr Stuart.

Good luck with the finish and I hope you'll find a perfect buyer.

organise self build kits cheaply for the hoi polloi royfus.this will be a good way of weening people off industry led, logoed up, bad for the environment foam/fibreglass sticks.
just pandering to the mega rich won`t do much for society as a whole.....

Yes but look on the bright side, your shed door probably better suited to actual surf than Roy's boards....

Couple of questions, no three:
Why the masking tape?
Is there colour in the varnish/resin/oil?
Is it paulownia?

The masking tape is to prevent the resin from dripping on to the deck, the wood is paulownia and the resin is clear 2:1 PSI surfboard epoxy, no tint.

Why tape off and not just brush over, would have thought you'd go for more naturelle?

Without tape one can get drips forming underneath, if these are brushed out the brush marks show up under the next coat and also have to be sanded to bond in )which is a nightmare as it can wreck the shape due to density differences between resin and wood..

The tape line is impossible to see.

One (.47) million dollar baby.

Does hotkurl come with a fin?

I wonder if a round tail flat rocker standard shortboard can be ridden back to front...

As always Roy, the board looks beautiful and is a thing of beauty even if it never gets ridden.
However, what in the name of all that is sacred posessed you to stick that sodding great yacht water filler cap in the middle of the deck?! Is it there to stub your toe on as you cross step to the nose?
Seriously though, there are many much nicer and lower profile metal drain bungs available. For the price of the board, I would expect to see a purpose made machined stainless bung, not some mass produced tank cap from a chandlery catalogue .

Firstly the vent is not in the riding position, the board is not a noserider. As you can see it is not in the middle of the deck as you claim.

Secondly hand operated vents are quite simply better, since no key is required, and the larger opening keeps the interior sweet, for the same reason that boats have inspection ports. Handsome is as handsome does.

As for the board not being ridden... just try to stop me! 8)

It's ok Roy, I know you're not a fan of running up and down boards.
Seriously though, for not a lot of money you could get something really unique and sexy machined up to do the same job, maybe with a little cast insert that's made out bronze? It'd be so much more classy than a water tank filler cap especially on such a valuable board that I assume will be sold.
