hi there ‘bice’
unfortunately I can’t open pdf files , but …
maybe / check out the mctavish ‘more stoked’ book ? ,
as well as google michael cundith , greenough , wilderness surfboards .
and richie west
and i guess , if you can see one in person at the place that is making them , then … [ ? notebook , tape measure , camera ? ] but … chat to the guys , first , eh …
although years later , both the movies ‘crystal voyager’ and ‘morning of the earth’ featured [much] smaller , more manouevrable stubbies [1971 onwards ] , and some very nice surfing by chris brock [m.o.t.e., lennox] and richie west [ in santa barbara / rincon / offshore islands areas ].
all of whom live now close to each other in australia …in fact , they have for decades ! bob cooper and rusty miller , also . Cali guys invaded the north and mid north coasts of east coast oz in the early 1970s [… musta been the right points thing, eh ?!..]
the later ‘stubbies’ did not feature the ‘hull’ bottom , greenough and mctavish swearing off them before 1975 , apparently . flat bottoms and slight vee took over from then , at least on east coast oz.
I guess the deciding factor for **you **will be your style , your waves , and what you hope to do on them.
please take photos , as the board progresses. As my ‘signature’ hints at … [ I LOVE photos of boards and fins , and surfing , and … a surfboard build photo thread ?! … wooohooooo !!]]
