i have a blank for free 9-5s that was damaged in shipping.

so im thinking of making a stepdeck out of it.

was thinking of 9’3" stub noserider but stepped, problem is cant find any side pics of a stepdeck to judge how thin and what rocker curve in the nose.

any help?


the 95s is already kinda flat in the deck the stepping wont take much the profile is as far as I see a matteer of keeping the transition elongated so as to reduce the concentrated fragility inherent in the "stepdeck’ design the transition is where the flex break point is …the ones I’m making now I’m musing about a reinforcement on the top as well as bottom {I-Beam] right by the transition area…as I cut the two or three passes I was thinking about the penetration into the core foam making the density top and bottom different but now as I am typing I see that maybe tis matches the amount of passes I take off the bottom anyway as I was milling the dora deck rail channels feature crossed my mind a long hard think I tried to intelectually understand when I owned a clear “Cat model” black fin …the toe pocket depression in the rail allowed for micro adjustments whilst in Le trimme on the elongated pointractions of the Mythical trimlines of The Maliwu…the profile Ive always been comfortable with is at one third transition Ive seen some farther back but that makes a funny paddling feel laying prone and farther forward Ive seen while it reduces swing weight it seemrd misplaced in all but a hobie Tandem Board that resided in santa cruz arround 1965…{ a hobie shop rat trap] that allowed a paddle spot for the forward partner… ambrose…the steps from the end of Brother Buzz ‘the latham foundation for humane education’ to think that stuff iresides within us 50 years later

oh, man…are there some broken buttons on your keyboard? namely the ‘comma’ and ‘period’…cuz that gave me a bit of a headache.

Finished tail thickness 12" up: 1 3/4"

Finished nose thickness 12" back: 1 3/8"

Finished thickness 36" back from tip: 2 3/4"

Step starts around 44" back.

If the blank has over 4" of nose rocker, don’t bother.

The 9’5"S may not be the ideal blank for this application. Think 10’3".

I also had difficulty diagraming sentences. Participles wer followers of Christ part time.prepositions are what you did on the wave before this one.Sorry to hurt your head,Take a small sip of water every time I go … on the . key and you will see the seperation of thoughts or perhaps the A.A.D.D. skip . I dont Have a ritilyn perscription and I think faster than I type , [ oh yea maybe a deep breath after the sip of water] but I am better than I used to be…{sip water…ambrose… call me in the morning


I’m starting to understand your poetic style, and everyone else in become blurry… Should I be concerned? :slight_smile:

Keep 'em coming!


Ambrose, I know just what you mean. I also think faster then I type/write, and sometimes I talk faster then I think, and my words come out all messed up. I was told once by a teacher that this was the signs of a smart person. So I keep telling myself Ambrose is just a whole lot smarter then your are Bagman, just except that.

and some times when you just say what pops into your head when you relax your mind properly there are really insightful things that just slip out and these here writing tools allow this ? feature to blossom my mom went to these meetings held by this episcopalian minister where they delved into ‘automatic writing’- talk about the razors edge - whats bad gramaticly and not acceptable english writing could turn into E.E. cummingS… . or a visitation from an essene body surfer makng an inflateable out of a goat stomach or two…thank the fabric of life for alternative communication methods in time these may lead to actually understanding everyone… ambrose… didnt watching the olympix make you wanna learn a little greek

step dex are not just a way of life they were handed down from OLYMPUS by BOBIS Simmonolious second cousin to BILL Prometheous you know, the guy that built the big fire at the rivermouth that Lenny threw the boards onto…***

And you know what they did to Bill Prometheous for giving us the ability to forget how to cross step? They tied him to the pincal at the Lane, and made him watch Denny Anderson ride his Haut Bump, across the slot, on the nose all the way.

I love stepdecks, I just can’t seem to get the right one under my feet. See you soon Ambrose.
