Nice one. Good to see a Burford and Volan.
Dog hair. Ha. I feel your pain. I had a black cat living in my garage for years. The cloth would attract hair via static electricity, and you couldn’t see it under the cloth until wet out. I always had one or two under the cloth. Drove me nuts.
I forgot whether it was Jim Philips or Ricky Caroll, but one had a Balsa board that developed termite holes throughout. The remedy was to incorporate/highlight them in the board finish. Looked cool. Maybe put a decal of a small dog scratching next to the hair.
All the best

Here's my 6'0 all polished up. Supposedly we're getting some waves here this weekend that will be big enough to test it out.
This post went too far off front page...
New build for my good old buddy retirement, full volume to start fast and thinned tail rails + quad set up to grip in our steep beach breaks.
1.9lb eps with omega composit stringer, 4oz-1mm wood-4oz top, 5oz ud carbon rails, 2x4oz tint bottom. Durable build but still not too heavy.
The past 6 months have been full of injuries so my water time has been limited and other than repairs I have't done much board work. I have been spending a lot of time shooting with my camera though:
Finished up a 6'10 single fin first attempt at resin tints. Pretty happy with the bottom, deck looks kinda weird because I probably didn't skin it deep enough.
Personally I like a resin tint that looks like the real thing and not like an airbrush.
