Had the blank for awhile, just getting around to starting something. Working out of town a lot, so likely to proceed very slowly. But since I took it out and did a little work today, I thought I'd go ahead and start my thread. Will update as I proceed.
My first time working with EPS. 2 lb. US Blanks 9-4B from Fiberglass Hawaii in Ventura. Steve Huerta my go-to sales guy ordered it for me, took about a week to come in.
I picked up the blank with no stringer, so I could put my own in. Couldn't believe how "floppy" the blank was, when I picked it up. Wow. Thinking I'll go triple stringer. Center basswood, sides redwood or paulownia. Wood tail block.
Kinda an old school single fin longboard - with a "twist" (or maybe even go twingle fin), thinking of going glass on, but not sure. Everything subject to change.
I cut the blank today, just used a floppy blade pull saw. It did a real sloppy job, cleaned it up as best as I had patience for, far from precision but close enough, went ahead and mixed some epoxy resin with Q-cell and black pigment, and clamped everything together.
Below is the board so far.
