Winter swell dreamin’…

Late Fall is a time to put away the noserider and break out the “winter board”. In this case, a 9-6 blue tint, reverse-lap, pinlined Nova Speedster Pintail, sporting TA side-bites and a 7” Wayne Rich Classic center fin, all in red (of course!). Dimensions are: 17-1/2” x 22-3/4” x 13-3/4” 3”
What’s unique about this board is that I used a “red” density USBlanks blank. This is the density that most PU shortboards use. To counteract the lower density (and to prevent excessive heel denting) I used the more expensive, but stronger Silane cloth, instead of E-cloth. End result is a relatively lightweight longboard, which will resist excessive denting (or so I hope)
I kept the rocker at just over 4” in the nose and just under 4” in the tail, and used more of a continuous curve throughout. There’s slight concave in the nose and a fair amount of V in the tail.
Like all of my “Shop” boards (wink, wink, nod, nod) this one’s for sale. Shoot me an email if interested.
