how did I manage to overlook this thread..?
got me thinking - anyone in the UK interested?
I got the template, its 9.6 I think
Herb said its a spin template and you should be able to adjust as needed
Please make it as long as you can, cause Im getting fat and slow,, ha ha
funnt ,,, that your going shorter as you get back into surfing,,,, good for you,, stay healthy
I have Dr appointments and some out of town work comming up ,, but I will start on yours soon enough.
Im still pondering the masterpiece you shall recieve,,,, undecir=ded on design asthetics.
Take your time. OK, I'll see if I can do this at 9'6". It'll be a challenge, but that's what I asked for LOL. I did rebuild that 9'6" that was broken in two, so it'll fit in that girly-man-cave of mine, but how many times did I get resin on my pants just trying to get out the door hahaha. Thing is, I break out in hives when I hear the "W" word, because even some guys who build wood boards tell me they're too heavy to ride any good, and I just don't believe it. Of course, I don't rip like Taj or anything, but even Roger Hall, who builds foam boards for a living, prefers wood boards for his own quiver. Anyway, to each their own, everyone can ride what they like - I'm not trying to start a forum war or anything, and I don't want to start getting personal messages from guys telling me they know Brewer and Lopez and so therefore I can't disagree with them online LOL.
When I first got back into surfing I started with a 6'10 retro fish, and really enjoyed it. True, my wave count sucked, but that had to be partially due to a 23-year layoff from surfing. Now, at the advice of a lot of the sages here, I've got two longboards and love 'em. But when the bigger waves come, I feel more comfortable on a smaller board, since that's what I rode most my surfing life back in the day. Growin' old sucks for sure, so we just gotta take one day at a time and be glad for what we have today, and not worry about tomorrow too much, other than takin' care of ourselves. I just want to thank you for taking me up on the offer, it does my heart good to be building my first board for a "client", I'm stoked on getting started once the template arrives.
call me what you want ,,ur Your my friend and we're gonna have fun doing this with a reward for both at the end of the build
