Couple of pics from yesterday, the stressful part of any build, routing the fin boxes in, especially when you know you have a mistake in the marking, made sure I cut that one out first and yes I did line it up with the correct mark, Pwhew!
I had a recycled set of 9 degree FCS for the fronts and needed some rears. Scrounged through the pile of donated bits and pieces and this tail end of a DHD had some 3 degree ones in there. So out with the high speed drill. Its funny if I went around the plug anti clockwise the bit naturally held tight to the outside of the plug. Made it an easy cut.
Used the dremel to sand down the glass on the top for the first time, hopefully this means I get a good bond across the top, I have not bothered with this before and never had an issue but we will see how it goes.
Cleaned up the rest of the 3 degree ones today but no pics.

Set the fins in both the current projects yesterday.
The two plus one I used a set of 5 degree for the twin.
Would have loved a set of 5 degree for the quad rears but I only had a 3 degree set and with the way they sit in the concave I had to sit them a little sketchy in the route and they are almost 0 degrees compared to the board, But that s all good.
I helped a neighbour do a repair on a log this arvo and got a few paints out for a signature brush acrylic paint and metho artwork. A bit bummed I didn't have a better red here at home.
This was meant to be a kinda wound, representing the struggles aboriginal humans have endured for 240 year at the hands of us. But the red came out pink. But if you don't focus on the originalnintent it kinda looks interesting either way.
We all bleed the same colour.
There should be more compassion in the world.
You got that right.
Keep up the good fight Adam.
No; It's not an ironing board.
Thanks man. You stay safe over there.

Added some red to the pink red in the centre.
Did a pattern on the top.
Something from nothing. A nondescript longboard becomes something unique. Good work on that thing. I was following you closely thru the foil. You cleaned it up like a pro. Asym's are not my thing and never have been. Like I told wideawake about those 50lb fin on the tailblock retros; "Not my ride". But that doesn't take away from your ability to do a nice job.
This thing will hopefully be good for average surf, low rocker lots of lift and the asym is about driving from the front of the fin cluster on the toe side and carving from the rear ofnthe cluster on the heal side and not moving the fot up and back much.
Lamed the bottom today.
That does make sense.
