Finished board for Dawn Patrol Surf Shop.

This has been my most interesting project to date.  It's small like the keiki board.  I had a great time with all of the design features.  The shop provided me with a board to copy.  I drew it up and made all the patterns or built it on the fly.  The bottom and deck are paulownia.  The rails are balsa.  I used polyester resin and 4 oz. S-2 glass.  This is the lightest board I've ever built and it seems pretty strong.  Big thanks to Lance and Randy for providing materials.

If you come to Ormond Beach or your local check it out at the Dawn Patrol Surf Shop on A1A.  Really nice people, lots of boards, wet suits, fins and SUP stuff.

Laminated 5'6" board

It's been a while since I've posted anything about this board.  The top and bottom are laminated.  I'll glass on the fins in the next few days.
