Lance still at it. a short film I made at the Wavetools shop in Costa Mesa. If you love carving out your own boards, worth watching. #LANCEISBACK
...hello; I just watched the clip, I am a surfboard builder not only a shaper; included fin making and foiling; silkscreening; color work; glueing stringers and Balsa boards.
In my opinion, he is almost overshaping those blanks; too much removed from the deck.
About the clip: good music; some good action but repetitive without a criteria; like only for a shapers eyes. Better to start with the planshape or the cleaning of the blank then the mowing then the final steps; plus; the color work and glassing work. May be all that with 3 minutes more of editing.
I’ve often heard it said that blanks are less dense in the middle. However I’ve never actually seen any scientific proof of this; ie someone taking samples from various parts of a foam blank and accurately testing them for density. It’s an interesting question really. Anyone have any ideas?
...go to a workshop grab one of the bones and see for yourself doing the "thumb pressure test" in the cut; middle, intermediate and under the crust.
Machine butchers most of the boards.
Haha! Nice to know he is still at it. I remember him from the Pismo days..
