There was a considerable time between all of the stages. Moving houses and life, as well as a few other boards. The edges meant developing a few interesting techniques.

The triple stringer edge junction made life interesting.
My wife killed it with awesome artwork.
The black and yellow one sold at a charity auction for 700 bucks.
More than a year after the boards were finished I finally took the pink one out in mother's day.
The edges on the pink and blue one were not as sharp as it was the first one I shaped and I just wasn't as good at making it as sharp. But it flew when I used it. I had some magic rides on a long fast point break. Cough cough (noosa). At 47, I have not used a belly board since I was about 13, but this thing was very different to a boogie boards. No flex, heaps of lift and it has fins. Worked out a technique with the outside hand on the nose, then dragging the Inside arm in the wall to get awesome little fast tube rides. You could stall.with the inside arm and then release to go fast.
As with all of my threads ask heaps more questions, I'll answer.
Width at tail?

About 2" from tail the width is the smidge under 15"
Interesting. I am collaborating on a paipo project with lots of lift. Trying to get my ducks in a row and find time to start on it. Appreciate hou sharing this. Looks awesome!
Fully happy to share everything with you. Will show you my shaping sanding jigs. But this thing was designed to be all about lift. Initially for my dad and a mate who had spinal fusion in his lumber region. One wave on its first run I got kinda caught in the lip as I was getting used to it. Free fell down to the trough, thought I would bog and nose dive butnit popped straight up and took off again. Kept riding wave for another 150 m.
The point it tea tree at noosa. 300m rides from start to finish. Mothers day morning, almost the least crowded I had ever seen it.
Excellent work as usual Adam. I wish you were closer, they look like a heap o' fun.
No; It's not an ironing board.
