The process…

 I thought I’d show a little bit of the process of board building. This is a 10-2 for Steve down in Panama. After a long discussion via email, we settled on this hybrid longboard design which blends some classic features like egg rails and single-fin set-up with a more modern outline. The triple-cedar stringer and wood tailblock are just pure longboard no matter what era. Here’s the board after final shaping:

Then the bottom lamination in Volan with light yellow resin tint
Getting ready to add stripes…

…and not just airspray, but genuine, old-school opaque resin stripes.

Just the bottom-half of the middle stripe is needed. Stripes will be “feathered” into hot coat to minimize raised edge and then entire board gets gloss coat.
All done and ready to go to Panama
