I said here after I finished my first shape that I’d never be interested in glassing.
I was lucky enough to have a pro give me guidance, equipment and a place to give it a go. Basically showed me what to do and then turned me loose. Fin boxes all the way to sanding the buggah. Pretty stoked on the end result, it looks like this one might work, even.
I almost got to finish #2 without a really major f/up. ALMOST.
sanding 220 grit just about done, probably make a real sander cringe, but looking surpisingly decent to me … and then I let the sander pad catch the tip of the tail, flinging the board off the rack onto the floor. faaaaark!
ding repairs before it even gets near water! anyway, not too bad, couple chunks off the tail and a chipped nose. thanks again to BAMMBAMM808 for all the glassing & sanding guidance, time and tools and all that. took it home surformed the patch jobs down and hand sanded them up, looks decent.
here’s the board !
