This is primarily for Chip/Shwuz/Benny
a very big mahalo to CMP as his guidance and generosity are beyond description…
Project2 = Brother’s 8’2 EPS longboard fighter… Also to be passed on to his daughters
sorry for the night shots almost forgot to photo it before he took it home
Future owners of this board
Project3 = My first real shaping attempt and also a test of Bert’s balsa rails technique:
Project 4 is being glassed
Project 5 (flexy fish board) is having it balsa rails attached
Here’s Project 6 = favorite 15 yr old long board restoration 10’ jim turnbull custom bonzer bottom.
Absolutely the best longboard I’ve ever owned period including my Parmenters and Ku’s,
sanded down to the glass 1/64 veneer from joewoodworking being lamed to the deck and bottom and 2oz glass with RR resin to seal.
Thanks everyone as things are finally moving along
projects 4 and 6 should be done soon and project 3 in a couple more weeks(damn balsa rails).
got 6 more EPS blanks being glued up too…
fun fun fun
Oh yeah we rode-em saturday PM…
mine was way too much board for the waves we were riding not surprising being it started as a pipe minigun shape. Definitely a travel board for indo/samoa
My brother was entralled with his board especially when we changed to that yellow fin… He had a greenough paddle which didn’t work at all. He loves that it works as expected and he made it with his own ideas and hands about what he wanted and not what someone told him he needed… That’s the beauty of all this and best of all they are built to last… His daughters will thank him for that later… Now he has to make another one for the little one only problem is she wants a 10’ tandem board so she doesn’t to do any work…
We got waves this weekend and next week it’ll be a good welcome into summer 1-2x overhead on the south.
Aloha from Ewa…
