I'm a newbee, sorry yeah one of those again ;) anyway i'll quickly introduce myself.
I'm matthieu, i'm dutch but live in belgium. i'm 43 and am a medschool student (in his exam period so actually i shouldn't even be here)
also i'm a goldmisth and a BsC in physics.
in my spare time i'm well i builder.. i like to make stuff. but specifically stuff i won't be able to afford but which i can build.
and one of my long time wishes is to do some surfing.. which i have never done (well, never.. i actually tried twice on holiday's and wasn't even to bad).
but i'm a compleet and utter nitwit on the topic. but i am handy.. and got interested in building my own surfboard and yesterday i bench watched the youtube thread from Andrew W on youtube on how to build a board from scratch, and well i think that should fit very well inside my skill set..
Oke at the moment i don't have the time and place.. but the future will hopefull bring that what ain't there right now.
and as with everything that needs to be done good.. one needs to be well prepared.
So a good starting question for me would be is.. What kind of board should i build. there are Soooooooo many shapes and sizes.
and then not even to talk about materials. anyway what would be something good to start with.. but not to big (not looking for a stand up peddle board.
So what should i look for in length, width, shape, curvings.. (thickness), basically the real question is where should i start as surfer. (no surf shop near me.. at all)
anyway.. i won't be here very often. but will always respond, is it not with some major or minor delays.
Kind regards and hoop to discuss soon.
