I wish I had that skill. I'm a big lumbering lummox with hardly any patience and would probably end up knocking it over, falling on top of it, or generally fugging it up because I rush thru it. I do commercial A/C and R. nothing delicate in those things.
The subject of pricing and selling the board could be argued indefinitely. I personally don't think $6000 is is an unrealistic number. Again they regularly go for that price online. However I have not decided to sell the board at all. I'm perfectly content surfing it.
I built this surfboard because I am in love with the craft of building and I am in love with the sport of surfing.
Hey man, don't get the wrong idea...i think your work looks great! I am a carpenter and understand full well the value of true craftsmanship.
