    Charles,
    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.

    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.

    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...

    Hey Roy,

    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.

    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.

    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.
