That is an all around bitchin looking board, nice job, love the pineapple fabric
What's up guys!
Michael- great to hear from you and your input is awesome. Yeah I based mine on the Takayama Scorpion and the FireWire Greedy Beaver.... along with a few other designs. I qued this one at 6'5" and 43Ltrs to give me the surface area and float I need. I totally agree about it being a go-to board! Can't wait to get it in the water. No ride report yet. I just got it finished. I had a run in with cancer and spent the last two months knocking it out ;) I just got my first couple of post surgery longboard sessions in! Stoked.
McD- brother I'm not sure how everyone else does it but I run my laps to a point where I want my edges to go hard and then cut them short to edge the tail. I don't ever have issues with my jig laying flat unless I have crazy concaves going on that I have to brace for. I sand the edges down first, then do the post lam fin route. Lots of ways to skin dat cat.
Jim- thanks so much. Means a lot coming from you. I saw the Pineapple fabric in one of our local Japanese fabric places and HAD to snag it. So stoked on how it came out... BUT my pinlines are garbage! Ha ha. I'm still learning my way through the fine details of finishing. I did white resin pins and they kicked my butt! I think this is board #58 or so. I'm a totally newbie but I love shaping.. I can't hardly help myself sometimes.
Some really nice shots of the finished board.
Clean looking finplug installation. I like the foil and the rail profile.
I bet the pineaplle express will go really good.
Sad to hear about the cancer. Wishing you all the best and a full and fast recovery.
What a beautiful finished project you have there. Killed it!
So sorry to hear about your health issues. I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say that we wish you luck! Sounds like you got a handle on it and hopefully that stays the case.
Thanks for getting back to us. All the best to you!!
