    PinkStink I have built quite a few boards. There is not a good local supplier of Paulownia near me but I found a great place in NH that sells cedar decking for real cheap. It has some knots but that just adds to the look of the boards. Below is a photo of the last board I made. Its a real fun project and even better when you get to ride weeks of hard work. I will tell you though your first board will not be that great. It takes a couple to get the techniques down. If you have a background in woodworking it will come to you much quicker. Also I now you bought plans but download AKU shaper. Its a fantastic board design program that will actually create template for hollow wooden boards that you can print out at Staples for a couple bucks. Have fun on your build and stay on tree to sea it is a wealth of information and extremely useful when building.

    HAHA for members of swellinfo the price is only $100,000! I mean I have to eat right.

    The board is 7' x 20.5" x 2.25" Weighs about 14lbs. I put a double concave into the tail just to see if I could do it. Its really not too difficult to do if you engineer it correctly.

    An amazing free tool for board design. If you are lucky enough to have access to a cnc router it can produce file for a router.

    That was good.

    Now, if I only had the power to know what tomorrow's closing prices of stocks are today...

    You don't have these items already?

    I don't like that thruster at all, it looks like a typical aku/fishbone dog of a board.
