...hello Rajon; thank you. I have not enough space to show better the outline etc; however you have there plenty due to those big sheds.
Also, your foil looks good from here.
Hi Greg; in this case the 4 pinlines are made with ink. Sanded too, before gloss coat. No matter the process I always sand over before next coat. This case sanded by hand very slightly with 1500 then pass a clean wet rag with dishwasher soap to prevent any residue to show over color (normally when you paint the foam)

Thanks for noticing, guys.
At one point I started realizing that other shapers will be viewing my work and they may be more experienced than I am and have a better eye.
So I had to work on getting things right.
It helps to walk away and come back and look at it again the next day to really figure it out.
It's good to have a place to share where other shapers here can notice, as well as to view other guy's work, and ladie's too
Reverb: The challenge is to snake that freshly shaped blank out through the door of my shaping bay and out the gate past a bunch of clutter without damaging it... So I can take pics!
But taking it out doors to look at it is essential, As I've had some shapes that had some flat spots and bumps that I didn't notice on the stands, but did notice at the beach.
Home is where the foam is
...hello MiWie; thank you for your kind words but may be in direct you finish disappointed ha ha.
Hi Gdaddy; I make the fins always thinking in the shape and the surf condition to be used. The basic stuff for this one are: Good base area with intermediate rake. 7 1/4 x 5 1/4; 65º front rake; 80/20 foil; 40 layers of 4oz.
Also I tried to obtain a color work similar to the board.
Hope that helps.
I always like your work and wish you'd post more boards.
Freshening up a couple old favorites

Tom-- Don't know if they are still available, but used to see replica brass plugs for those old boards for sale once in awhile.
Have not posted on here in a while. So please be patient as I re-figure this out! New Model, Roswell Model. updated version of my old Hitchcock Model. Twinnzer fins, concave deck, new nose & tail.
Surfboards made by hand. Not machine.
Saw this on your insta.. and also prompted me to ask about the fin positions.. (ZAGSurfboards). This looks mental.
Pics work best if you use the "file attachments" button when you post. I couldn't get your 2nd pic to work
