Wow Barry, just wow. Exceptional craftsmanship. Surfing them all in my mind now. Would love to see them in the flesh. inspiring stuff indeed!

Shushka, You are wrong there..
I know the process Barry used on that, or better yet Ill assume he is doing what we do to acheive a similar effect.
Inlayz doesnt print carbon... they print thinks that LOOK like carbon.
All the stuff you see printed is not carbon, its usually just on a cotton or silk substrate. people use different stuff.

Okay, to provide Barry with a laugh, I'll give it a guess. Did you mask off rails at pin line, acrylic spray fade lime to orange, lam carbon/glass rail tape, trim masked edge and pin line?
Nice investigative work there martymo.
Yeah, that's all I did.
I love to mix airbrush tricks in when I can.
Been painting boards for 30 yrs.
Fades just are not done much these days.
That carbon was a bitch to cut. I think it was 8 or 10oz stuff.
That board has no wooden stringer, so that cloth really stiffen it up.
Thought I'd throw a few more in too. Last years projects.
Thanks for all the complements.
Surfboards made by hand. Not machine.
I see what you did, here. Reminds of back when Morey/Pope won the "Golden Doily" award for their Slipcheck pattern kits.I like it.

.....good on ya , Barry !
you are one of the handful here who let the photos do the talking , and make sways an interesting place to visit ! talk is cheap , so photo threads of boards , fins and surfing , keep me coming back here .
keep up the GREAT work , and don't forget 'THE PROJECT ' , eh big bazza ? [ I will keep reminding you , don't worry !! ;) ]
cheers mate !
Good to hear from you Ben. How's things?
We need to see some of your beautiful surf photo's.
And some more of those cool fins you make too!
cheers baz !!
if one person [you!] is interested then maybe that's enough [to warrant photos] , eh ? or not ?
I guess , over the years of posting shots here [chipfins/ fish/ chippy61 / stubs / now , 'fins' ] the old , overly vocal "locals" [ha!] grew tired of it ....
.... so , as you may have noticed , when I was unable to post photos or comments at sways and facebook [some computer / ? sites ? glitches] , I took a nice break / rest from it .
Since moving , baz, I have pretty much been hibernating , through this long cold rainy southern winter.
but now , it's spring [at LAST !!] .....
yes , some fins HAVE been worked on , since my move to Vicco ...
they just haven't been surfed , yet ....
would it be 'blackmail' to ask ? " if you make 'THE PROJECT' [heehee] , then ....I'll post some fin photos ?? " :)
COME ON Mr. BAZZA !
..... it's been QUITE a few MONTHS now , hasn't it , since you were the ony guy here , out of thousands of talk talk talkers , who actually is going to MAKE it ! [I'm patiently trusting you at your word , unlike other ficklers here haaa !!]
we need "kokua" and bill barnfield , back on here . And gee , I STILL miss Shipman's creativity [R.I.P., Ben ]
..... it used to be FUN , here , once .....there used to be lots of creativity , and photos , and people used to be encouraged for giving things a go [imagine THAT , eh ?! THERE'S an idea !]
.... once upon a time ... till the old grumpy "know it all , done it all, seen it all " pricks / internet bullies took over , and pissed on creativity . sad days indeed , now ...
thank goodness that the [all too rare] photo thread still survives here , to share the stoke / feed the fire !
cheers mate !
Just for YOU , Big Bazza !
( as professor [frink ? ] julius woulda said ....
" allll becarse yoooo askkkked for IT !" , eh ?! )
