Random pics from the workshop

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.

Yeah sorry bud forgot to answer :oops: the older surf techs had really thick polyurethane paint on and if you hit it with cellulose it would split and melt so had to be done with polyurethane paint and then a polyurethane clear coat.
Nowadays it seems like they are done with a different paint and the thinners in the cellulose doesn't affect it, so I just use industrial cellulose base coat then a Matt industrial cellulose paint and around 15 coats of lacquer.
As long as you put plenty of lacquer on it seems pretty durable.
