A friend and I are making our first surfboard. We have just finished shaping and are now ready to glass it.
We have watched a thousand videos online and read a million articles about all stages of making a board.
I have also done a search here but we are still unsure about the whole glassing process.
From what I understand the norm is to do 2 layers on the deck and 1 on the bottom.
Is the order important? (Top, then bottom, then top again? etc)
What do you do to the flaps once they are folded over the rails, do they not make a lifted edge on the deck?
And what exactly is a hot coat?
If anyone can help, or reccommend anything to read or watch that would clear this up it would be greatly appreciated.
We want to get this board finished so we can take it for a ride and get started on board number 2.
