Sometimes, you get lucky.
For instance, you just meet a fantastic balsa wood stock just around the corner…
That happened to me recently and I still have some.
Or you can discover someone still has a Clark and do not intend to use it.
“It’s your’s if you like”.
Well… i got that luck a few days ago: a brand new clark is mine !!!
A blank that just popped out the McFly’s DeLorean.
A real 6’3"B from the age of Fluos and War Paints.
For such a a blank, I needed a really good project to shape.
As I felt like shaping myself a kind of 80’s Twin, I could not have a better chance to succeed.
My program is to use as much foam as possible to create my own board.
I’m almost tall (1.83m ~6’), almost heavy (80kg) and almost old (36) so I need foam under my feet.
I’ll go on a flat deck, single to double concave, vee, sweet rails sharpening at the tail… Simple but efficient board.
I took some mesurements, pictures, started drawing a template… I think I’ll refine some curvres here and there.
To make that board unique, I won’t go on a standard twinnie but on a Twinzer Set from Lokbox.
That board will rip, I already know it.
