    Upsizing a 5'10 step up into a 6'0.

    (In the side by side picture the new board looks enormous compared to the original but that's just the difference in angle in how I had them propped against the fence. In reality the finished board is 1 7/8" longer than the one on the left.)

    Set fin boxes, glassed and hotcoated this morning. First time putting carbon fiber on a board which gave me a little drama as one side started wandering once the resin hit the board. Luckily that screw up will be under the trac pad anyway. Will rough sand it this afternoon.

    Thanks. I think I came as close as a backyarder could come to upsizing a copy of an existing board by hand. Finished dimensions are 6'0 x 18 3/4 x 2 1/2. Roughly 28.5 Liters. Just have to put the leash plug in and finish sand it.

    Finally got around to sanding and finishing this board yesterday. This is my son's current quiver.

    What a lucky kid!

    Always liked the "dipped" paint job on surfboards. Nice lush grass too! You are killing it, man.

    He certainly is. Thankfully he works and has some sponsors helping out. Good times.

    That is awesome. From your pics I think your kids right now are 12 million times better at surfing than I ever was. Good stuff. Supportive dads are in short order

    Thanks. All three kids surf very well. I've always tried to make sure they've had the right equipment. Was always something we could do together especially with my two oldest. You don't see many pictures of my two oldest because back then I was always surfing with them. Its just in the past few years thanks to some injuries that I've gotten into photography. The youngest has a lot of talent and has some very talented friends as well so the photography thing has been pretty fun. Lot of good times......
