First post after much lurking.
Covid-19 has forced me home from college to sunny and flat SC and all this time indoors has finally given me enough free time to throw at some foam. I wanted to keep a thread going to document my progress and get the inevitable feedback I need to improve my craft.
I'm planning on mostly copying a 7'8" Ryan Lovelace Fat Lizzy as it will fit a nice gap in my quiver and looks like a wonderful board. Planning on doing a 2+1 fin setup, some art, and some extra fin/deck patches.
Today was my first day of shaping and I made some good progress albeit instantly gouging foam from my saw blade that kept bending. Starting the rocker, planing, and keeping things even has been pretty easy and satisfying otherwise. Next up is finishing the rocker a little more and then working on the bottom contours.
Here's my janky templates and some pics!
