Lighter is better.

I got the idea of using a small luggage scale to weigh my boards.  The scales are inexpensive and fairly accurate.  One of the nice features is the zero button and it also has metric.  The sling I made is just some loops of nylon rope.

I did a comparison between my new build and my board the plans were made from.  The Torq weighed 9.9 lbs and my project weighed 9.6 lbs.  That's better than I expected.

There has been a couple of days of small fun waves and they say there will be some for the weekend.

Nothing to get very excited about.
