    Good choice! Sweeeet - post the real thing when you get it! And remember to let it sit for a little... If you surf a brand new board after glassing- they ding super easy. They call it a 'green' board... Maybe hang it on the wall for 3 weeks - unless you like heel marks on the deck!!

    I hope so. Greg contacted me a few weeks ago saying he was ready to finish it. I've called / emailed him a couple times in the last week or two but no response yet. I don't know if he's out of town with Eric or Evan, but I'm eager to try it out before summer is gone. Hopefully he responds soon and I can go pay for it, pick it up and take it for a spin, all in one day. Provided the glassing is solid and doesn't need time to "cure" or w/e. If it's been sitting there done, I guess it would be ready to go. Will post some pics of it when I get my hands on her.

    ...I also wouldn't get black, red, or dark blue on my board because of wax melt
    I agree. Most swirls look like sh!t.

    That's what I was afraid of. I've seen plenty that look cool, but more that look crappy. I also have no desire to stick out like a sore thumb either. When it comes to LB's, I really enjoy the classic look. For a HPSB I allow for a little more flashiness.

    I've done two or three swirls. solidly in the "sh!t" category. way too much muddiness from squeegee work by the time you're out at the rails. So does this...

    ...pretty much mean your successfully poured swirl is going to use about double the resin as you would for a clear lamination?

    My All time fav. longboard was/is a jim "the genius" phillips. That board was sick. I have the blank still its stripped and drying in my garage rafters waiting to be re-glassed.
