I am setting up to shape two more boards first 2 weeks of august.
I think I understand a lot more than I did a couple of months ago but obviously still learning.
I am trying to make a board for one of my friends that fills a gap in his quiver. Right now he has basically all performance shortboards which is great when it's like 6 feet and has some good sauce in it.
But what I was thinking of making was a fish but not as high volume as the one I just made.
Hes 5'8 and about 150 lbs.
Was thinking of making the board something like 5'8 length and 2.5 inches thick.
Wide point 2 inches up from center.
16 inches at the nose
14 at the tail
Maybe 3 inches of nose rocker and less in the tail with a plan for a central concave running to just above the twin fins?
1)Any thoughts on design elements thatll make a twin fin fish fly.
2) Going to try painting directly on the blank for this one and laminating in violet. I think acrylic paint can go directly on eps? Can you verify
3) For glassing what I did on the last ones was 6oz on the bottom and 6oz deck patch with 4 wrapping around. Any reason to deviate from this glassing schedule?
