Can it, gnome. Stop wasting our eyeballs, Just PM yourself fer chrissakes
Yes I did draw the plan shape by hand.
I used a large roll of brown paper from Lowes.
Cut a piece 1 ft longer than the board
Fold it in half lengthwise
Use circle templates, long thin wood strips to aid in tracing a plan shape
Cut out the plan shape and unfold..... you get a perfect symmetrical plan shape
Take the cutout and retrace on another sheet of paper.
Use the cutout for tracing over the uncut blank
Use the uncut traced piece as a lay down /fit up aide for the small blocks
Glad to send you my phone number if you like a better explanation / toss around ideas.
As far as the board rides I posted a few experiences of my own on days with limiter conditions. I have been passing the board around to fellow surfers/friends and its currently at its third home now. The most recent holder of the board reports the board took a session to get the feel for but after he found the sweet spot it was a really easy wave catcher. The highlight for me was hearing he had a 75 yard ride in. Not bad for the first few sessions I think.
