Almost done.

The board needs a gloss coat of poly on the bottom and then some massaging.  I can't tell you how excited I am about this one.  We've been having some fun surf so I'm anxious to finish and test it.

Laminated with fins.

I've been on a roll with this board.  It's laminated and the fins are glassed on.

I'll do a little more sanding and then hot coat.  The board is very light and strong.

Something new

For a long time I've been wanting to do a mexican blanket board.  They are very unique.  I did mine with food coloring and marker pens.  The leash plug and recessed vent port have been installed.  The board is ready for glass.

Shaping up

The last couple of days I've been shaping the rails, nose and tail.  It's great working with the balsa wood.  Real easy to work and control.

The rails turned out just like I like them.  There are some little things that I have to fix on the top and bottom.  Next I'll install the vent port and leash plug.  The board feels very light.
