    Finally finished this thing. Final weight is 12 lbs. I can get it lighter next time I reckon http://instagram.com/p/iMNUdKR3PN/

    Try not to troll my Instagram too hard guys but I don't care really just thought this video was a good one to show off this build.

    did the guy ride it yet?

    Can you get a good shot of the rails? Maybe its just cause its wood, but they may be a little boxy for modern shredding, if ya know what i mean.

    But beyond that, it looks like it'll be fun as SH!T!!! Really floaty, really fast. How much would you say putting that together costs total? No labor.

    No worries man. I appreciate your support. I actually IM'd Tunerfish about our history and how we have come to a mutual respect and truce and that I admire your craftsmanship and board building. You know now my only issue with wooden boards was you know who's pricing and not the actual wooden boards themselves. See sometimes arguing can bring people together.

    The board carries it's volume equally throughout the plan shape and rocker so yeah the rails are thicker than a typical fish, plus it's profile isn't foiled (tapered in thickness of deck to bottom) so I actually packed in 33 liters of volume into a board that has a thinner thickness than a similar fish of equal length and width.

    350 in paulownia wood and 100 in resin about. The epoxy coloring is like 20 bucks. That's it really. Some glass on the inside to add strength to the 5 mm deck and bottom. Resin seal on the outside, no cloth. I'm doing some fish now that are only getting oil to seal as well.

And the ones I sanded were from a CNC machine where I choose the specs and rocker with the shaper. I have ridden many a board and I know what works for me, but overall the finer points are not my forte' and Id like to learn and see them in action.
    good luck chuck. lots of pics.
    I've sanded/ patched dings on my board and consider myself an expert shaper. I will post pics and step by step process
