The "children's table" or underground revival?
Although not well received on the general discussion.
I’m on board with the classic three stringer big wave board.
Much more to come on this, CORE.
looks good, a winter board for the kid, I bet. Vta overhead?

Just finished sanding it.
So now I erase plan dimensions on the build sheet and start from nose to center and tail to center and I'm thinking 6'-0", hum overlap at center came out 5'-11 somehow!
Boy came by and saw it. Told him this is my best yet and it's all me.
Here's my charger from 7'-8" 72...behind it on rack my last weapons 8'-0" and 8'-6" . Boy said the new board reminded him of the yellow board, kind a funny, eh?
I would rather be someone's shot of whiskey, than everyone's cup of tea.
Shaped by Greg Liddle about 72
Rode GL boards in big waves, Hawaii and Cal.
Last rides "Storming Norman"
A very long time ago.
Back in the day I would have Greg route the fin box in my boards.
W.A.V.E set fin boxes that is!
It was him who began calling me “the razorblade kid”
As my rails were equal @ ½” all way round.
He complemented me with the rails on this one.
One more thing that tail gash?
He never saw me,
Almost got outta the way!
Boy is gonna be ready...
Waves comin' big a nuff for da Eddie?
Lit'l Sis a winner!
Too much North in both these swells for us!!!!
Bixby, Jalama still scraps!
Big Sis got wet.
Ride report, Boy nursing it on bottom turns.
Told him to trust it and put it on edge and stay with it (like drop-in in a half pipe).
Lit'l Sis in for repairs took the time to "adjust" the rail shape in the business section.
So with the waves we have now, its back to the groveler!
Here is a shot from yesterday evenings session.
Photo is very new I'll have a better one a little later.
Had a chance to get some photos of "Litl' Sis" as she was dry docked.
The rail change I spoke of is a tucked edge all the way around (thanks to Greg Griifin).
Just modified the business section as the rest was on par.
As a surfer for 52 years etc. serious boards had hard edges and I surfed 'em that way with no regret.
Recently, B. Berger said something that got my attention regarding edges in "higher energy".
I stated that "Boy" was nursing his bottom turns, BTW Reverb is on this like a fly on white and I mean volume and sinking the rail.
Avatar sez "use as much as is necessary" to put you in da spot, yeah?
Been at this a while and here is my current answer, Big Sis - Lit'l Sis.
Boy has a complete quiver now, Ah and no excuses.
Eh, bro's no ego, yeah, just looking for my alien relatives, thanks eh?
Long Live The Dark Side!
Here's a cool one.
Been fishing this hard and no bites.
I paid my dues, unlike other run on fools.
Really would love to find some like minded folk.
Like to think I can pick out what's workin' and tweek it.
Yesterday, got sunburned as sh*t watching some grovellers work and learned a lot.
And that's how I do it, no help, just keep messing til a Bingo pops up.
last shot at this....
Big Sis - Lit'l Sis rockers.
Me guess', "no one will ever fall in love with a, nitro burning funny car" DMM.

I admire your thoughtful research in your process, and dig your writing style too.
Are you saying you're wishing you had more feedback from people on Swaylocks, and feel like you're not getting it in General Discussion? Maybe you could try doing like Chip ("Fins") does and address your posts directly to the people you know could give you the feedback you're looking for....
I'm afraid you might be getting overlooked in E&Bs.
