Still one of the biggest characters on the North Shore.
Surfboards made by hand. Not machine.
Thank you for doing this.
This Shapers hot seat is great!
I am building hollow wood boards, and am using your resins.
I am sealing the inside before closing them up, but un thickened epoxy is quite heavy.and you can't squeegee the excess off all the insides like a flat panel.
My question is,can I thin the resin to go on much thinner and perhaps penetrate the wood somewhat.
What type thinner and how much can be used?Or would another product be better.
I've heard of that Smiths penetrating resin, which sounds OK in the descriptions I read.
One option I considered for light weight, is spraying some kind of water based polyurethane before closing up the board.
Since I'm using Resin Research epoxy for everything else, I just wondered if it could be thinned for that use as well.
On the subject of thinning resin, can you thin it with denatured alchohol or something when laminating to use less resin?
If so, how much could you thin it.?Or is it a bad idea?
I'm just trying to think of ways to shave a bit off the glass jobs on these already heavier woodies.
Greg I have met that guy from Tampa with his catamaran SUP. He wins a lot of open races on that thing. He has been rather closed mouth on who shaped it. I thought maybe it was a home build.
According to Mikki Dora Malibu went to the Dogs in 1964. The Chumash Indians will tell you it was 1664.
Should have put the above as a question. As to your thoughts on SUP design?
they should now build a tri hull'' and they will find just how much better it will be than a twin.
