Thanks for the help. But i sort of tried to plane out my gouges at nose and i flattened it! Argggggg. Any tips for sanding? As shown on my pic, if you see my right it dips down 1/8". In the meantime i found a surfboard shaping class in frisco! Price is reasonable. I think i am going to check it out. Should i bust it half? or is it salvagable? I think it's a pos now. I put it on the floor and noticed i planed out my rocker. I'm losing it. Not real sure i can fix the rocker i planed out? What do you think?
