Impressive work! Don't listen to the nay Sayers they don't have it rite. This is a labor or love. When Roy, Charles, or Steve builds a board the world will notice.

Poll: Roy should stay.
Roy should stay.
Go for it. I've made three. I've never stood up on one but have caught a few using it as a bodyboard.....scary fast.

Looking good Charles. FaomEZ has a nice little black plastic vent with o-ring I've used a few times.

Always interesting to see another builders perspectives on a build, especially when well thought out. I'm getting some good ideas from this thread for the next one. I'm really interested in seeing...

Very clean looking work Charles. I can't wait to see it after the epoxy goes on.

Yes, thats a brilliant idea! It never dawned on me to use a router. That's something I'll try on my next one.

Shaping the rails was one of the most exciting part of the build for me. It's when it starts to look like a surfboard.
I bet the guys at grain surf would get a kick out of seeing your board. Do...

My 10 weighs in at 44 pounds. The only time I notice the weight is the carry from the car to the ocean. By the way I have been passing it around to friends lately and I get rave reviews. They...

Is there an ideal weight to length ratio you go for? I didn't put to much thought into controlling the weight during my build.

Ok here we go.

I'll dig through the picture files and post some. I think I just have before and after shaping pics. Give me a call and I can talk you through in ten minutes what it would take me an hour to write.
A floating porter John. Nobody likes riding a log
Get a Popsicle stick.
Buy foam board
Try to blend with surf community
Talk smack about anything different

I was able to go from pulling the blank off the rocker table to ready to shape rails in a day with the belt sander electric planner option. And that's on 10'5" of surfboard. I...
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...

As you cut the board into its plan shape what method of cutting are you using. I used an electric planer followed by a belt sander with great results.

I see.....that's very cool. You are really sparing no expense (in labor) on this one. Can't wait to see the pattern. I stuck with the usuall butt joints on mine.

I wouldn't bat an eye at 30 lbs. That will be a great weight. If you haven't surfed a wood board yet you will be pleased with what that weight delivers.
I'm looking at your pic an I noticed the...
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...
