New at shaping. I just purchased my first foam ez surfboard planer. Any tips?
What's "cleaner cuts" ?
To get more skill the answer is simple : practice more \o/ !
Make several low depth shifts intead of one 1/4" shift... and take the time...
You can also buy some cheap XPS foam from home depot and practice on that stuff before using your planer on a 100$ blank.
I think ur pushing the planer too fast. Maybe slow down and let the planer cut. Also if u search "what's wrong with my planer technique" there's a bunch of useful tips.
