Mex, that thing looks real good, good work.
I've never seen a re-shape that was worth the effort and expense that must have been put into it... soft foam, whacked rockers, crude foils... I'm sure there are a few good ones out there, but I've seen many, and the ones I've seen have been inferior products for the money and time put into them.
Although... I did see a beautiful "art board" that was a reshape done by Ronnie Jackson. It was unbelievable.
I was thinking of re shaping a 7'4" fun board into a 6'0" short, flat, and fat summer board..... Was thinking of leaving the fins and taking all the length off of the front. Anyone done something like this?
I did this to a beat up Spyder board a few years ago. It wasn't for me, but my ex's little sister. I have no idea how it rides, but i can tell you that you'll learn alot in the process. This one i found in a dumpster and was just using as a coffee table, then decided it would be good to repair the broken nose and tail and delamed deck. I'd say go for it, then experiment with different fins.
