Is the bottom a single concave out through the tail? Can you tell the difference between that and a double to vee?
Highest caliber of shape and finish as usual bud. That foam stain on the first one is one of the nicest I have ever seen. That is a good layout on the drip tray. The black cat is a classic. Got a blackie myself. She curls up next to me every nite. Rescued from a farm at four weeks. Vinyl fences and palm trees remind me of Maui Meadows. Lowel
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.

Dang, Bud. I drop in here for the first time in ages and out of the gate I see this post. That is wicked looking. Epic. Personal, or for a customer?
How did you place the fins? Very interested to hear a ride report.
No; It's not an ironing board.
A - inspirational as always, from A - Z
B - Would you care to share what you're doing with rail profiles, foils and bottom contours? Questions about these design elements come up a lot here and your work is so clean that it provides the perfect illustration for what does what on a board.
C - Could you also pop in an explanation for where in your design process your blank choice comes in, and how you go about fitting your blank in with your design? A lot of new builders are simply picking their blanks by length and without further consideration for how their blank affects their results.
D - I know you're holding a lot more board pron that you haven't shown us. A high-level builder like you isn't sitting idle for long periods of time.
No he's not idle. He's surfing his ass off on those righteous shapes. Bud and Charlie blow my mind.
