Also did you draw that plan shape by hand and if so do you have any tips on creating it?

    Charles,
    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.

    You'll have to do your own research on that item, 'Chuck.'

    Chuck,
    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.

    How to build a RS board

    • Step 1: Buy materials
    • Step 2-976: Assemble Board
    • Step 2a-976a: Take pictures of each step
    • Step 977: Determine board is worth $1,000's
    • Step 978: Lend board to everyone in the surf community
    • Step 979: Ride board in ankle high surf and praise excessively
