I am up in the air as to what blank I am planning on going with for my next noserider. I am thinking 9’8 to 10’4 roughly 23-24 wide. With that said, what is your favorite blank from US, teccel, or Xtra? And why is it your favorite? These are the three choices I have locally.
I’m new to swaylocks posting-wise so I’m sorry if this doesn’t belong here. I’ve searched through the forums but I can’t really find a definitive answer. I’m going to be doing a noserider about 9’5 x 23 x 3 but I’m not exact on the dimensions yet but I think those will be pretty close. I’m doing two 4oz on top and one 6 oz on bottom, then a hotcoat on top. How much resin will I need? I’m going to be using Sun-Cure PU.
Again sorry if I should make a new thread or there is already an answer to this.
Oh and would a US Blanks 9-9B blank work for this?
If I was making a longboard that length, I’d do either 1 layer 6, 1 layer 4 on the deck. Or maybe even 2 layers of 6. But that’s just me.
I’ve ended up using a rough guide of 3oz of resin per foot of board (on deck) and 2oz per foot of resin on bottom. There are a lot of guys on here that can do it in a lot less, I’m just a shed builder.
If I was you, I’d start looking at other shaper’s websites to see examples of boards that you’d like to mimic. There’s got to be a noserider thread here somewhere…
Well its for a friend, I think she’s 5’6 120. She’s not the worst but still probably a Beginner, I think Ill make her a noserider fin something like this
When you said 1 layer 4 on deck was that a typo or is really 1 enough? On my HP longboards I put 2 layers 4 and 1 layer 6 on the bottom since I like my boards strong. Would 1 gallon be enough to cover the entire board or should I get two?
If you live in SB then you should just pop into the shop, we are only ten mins down the road. Our guys will point you in the right direction on a blank and glassing supplies. That way you can see and touch blanks to get it right.
