Are you sick of these things yet?
Well, almost done…
They still need to have the hotcoat sanded out and sprayed, but I figured this is the shiniest they’ll ever be, so… Have at them!
They’re all 1/8 balsa over 1 lb foam, just ridiculously tough and light.
6’6" “bumblebee” turbo canard quad
6’7" twinnie/twinzer/single/2+1/thruster egg
6’5" “best man” thruster. Made to the specs of the guy who was supposed to be my best man at my upcoming wedding on new year’s. He bowed out (told me on my birthday!) because he doesn’t believe in marriage and he hates my girl. Motherfucker.
Light as a standard 4 oz comp board, tougher than volan, concave deck. I’ll weigh them all when I’m done sanding and spraying.
Now taking offers on this one- (to be used to finance wedding gift for my lady, so be generous!)
Much thanks to JJR for the hookup on the lokbox turbo quad setup. I wish I could have gone lokbox on all three, but the “best man” specifically requested Futures, and on the egg I really wanted to try out the c5 setup with big ol’ sides as a twinzer thing, plus it was a LOT cheaper. But at any rate, my apologies JJR. :shrug:
Big thanks to DK for placement on the quads, and the kick in the ass to do what I knew I needed to do and put the center box in the egg, even after I had already installed the futures center box.
Another big thanks to tenover for the logo I used on the best man board. That sonofabitch doesn’t know what he’s missing out on.
Last but not least, the REAL inspirations for these boards.
Bert~ Without whom I’d never have put one of these together this well. I owe you for the “big picture”
CMPhawaii~ Whose website showed me (like three years ago!) my very first balsa-over-eps boards, and set me on a mission that has taken this long to complete. I owe you for the “big inspiration”. Your website got me thinking about making my own boards for the very first time.
Sabs, benny, oneula, chippy, and everyone else who I have forgotten who has been kind enough to help me with little tips and tricks and stoke along the way. I owe you for the details.
Thanks to all.
