I really appreciated all of your help when I was first starting. I am on board 9 now and the people are clamoring for all kinds of weird stuff I have never done. I have basically ridden short boards my whole life but someone wants me to make them a long board.
The person obviously sucks at surfing and just wants something to learn on.
I know basically nothing about longboard shapes. I was thinking something like
Material: PU as its easier to paint. EPS is a nightmare and I hate the pilling
Length: 9'6 feet despite the fact the person is kind of smaller (140lbs and not super tall)
Width: 3 inches thick in the center and 22 inches at the wide point (is this too wide?)
Nose: Was thinking keep the nose pretty wide at about 18 inches or so.
Tail: 16 inches with nothing in the hips at all so that it is just a nice mellow boat type
Rails: Fat Full rails with a little belly vs a full egg rail (could be fun?)
Rocker: Super mellow rocker in both nose and tail: maybe like 3 inches at the nose and 2 inches at the tail or something (who knows ill just eyeball it and see what looks cool)
Thanks for the input: For Color I was gonna try to probably paint the blank like a rainbow which I assume would just be a matter of taping defined lines and painting away. Doesnt seem all that hard and then just glass it clear after my misadventures with colored resin tints.
