I have ended up with a stringerless eps blank and I am at a cross roads. The board I am planning on making is to be 5'8, 20'' wide and 2.5 deep so not too long and relatively fat. After searching up different stringer alternatives I'm wondering if it would make more sense to try and put a stringer into the blank than to try and deal with using carbon, or attempting a parabolic type stringer.
I have done quite a few repairs and am comfortable playing with standard glass although this will be the first attempt at making a board.
To get a stringer put in, I would need to drive an hour and wait a couple of days.
Would it be much more complicated to use a carbon stringer or a parabolic stringer? Am I better to get a stringer put in? I can't see too many youtube videos on people hand shaping stringerless boards which is slightly off putting.
Whats peoples opinions?
Thanks in advance!
