I plan on using a close tolerance PU blank but I want to get one much larger than the size I pan on shaping. I want a 6"8. Would shaping down a 7"3 blank throw my rocker off? I want to be able to use some of the extra foam to practice shaping rails.
The board will tend to pearl dive on steeper waves due to lack off entry rocker. If you are planning on only riding mush waves, it's no big deal. BTW, what is everyone on this thread smoking and can I get some? It is soooo flat right now.
