This will be the thread where I dribble ideas and ask the real brains trust.
Some of you have seen that i have a large mass of foam in the shed, its M grade eps, from what i understand its around 1.4 pound eps. (had to convert it to american for ya)
One of my thoughts at the moment is to make another rabbits foot or other finless design.
Noosa festival of surfing is coming up again in march.
i made the super floaty rabbits foot out of a pu blank for this years event but the heats we heald in knee to waist high onshore dribble!!!!!!!
mine had gone very well in decent large point breaks but,,,, dribble,,,,, i was way out of the cool group that day.
the people who actually did alright on the day of dribble all surfed those glorified soft top body boards.
So the point is they had heaps of flex and went well in the dribble.
if i make a stringerless finless out of the EPS it might have some similar characteristics, go alright in dribble, that is.
just contemplating the design right now.
maybe not a rabbits foot as it can make it difficult going left, if its in dribble again i need to be able to go "both ways" (Matty will get a giggle out of that one)
Anyway, i have about, no actually, 4 seperate half finished boards on the go at the moment so i will kepp ya posted.....
