Very nice! Refined old school. Lopez and Parrish would have fought over who got to take it out at Pipe first. How did you do the color. I like it.
got this one done tonight. twin fin for Andreas. 5´7
Meant to say something sooner, but that is a very nice fishy. Great outline and well done butt crack tail cut. Good shaping.
75% of my board building has come from swaylocks archives. You can find it if you look. Wish some of the old timers where still around...20% is from just doing it and 5% from a few very helpful professionals in the field...
Start to finish, one pair of hands.Hit thirty boards with this one. Classic foam, 1”balsa 1/8 redwood triple t-band. Maple, black walnut and cherry tailblock, by me. 10 oz bottom and double 7.5 deck w/3” laps. Fin is 20 oz Kevlar laminated with 6oz glass, held on with 4 layers of 6oz and 30 strands of roving per side. Built to last...35lbs of thunder coming down the line next time I take this one out.
Nice! Love to see more pics.
The classic foam is heavy, I know from my own experience. But your stringers and glass job must have added a bit too. I think my 9 footer finished up around 18 lbs.
Is this a ten footer or more?
More pic pls.
all the best

It's a full ten feet. 16.25-23@-12"-17.25, 3.5 thick. The foam is crazy heavy but I also did some math and the extra stringers add a minimum of 5lbs. It's a tank for sure.
@ Parsurf: That is as pretty a board as I have ever seen.
Just curious, did you flip the blank around to get that rocker?
