The way I build my boards I'm never sure of what to expect. It's only after I take it out the cradle and trim the skin that I know what I got. This is just the beginning stages of shaping.
I weighted the board. It came in at 6.75 lbs. That's good so far. I still need to add rails, leash plug and glass. I hope that it turns out lighter than the copy board. A little trick I've been doing is cut a 1/8" thick section out of the nose. Then, I reglue it. That makes it just a little thinner which is what I want.
On my boards I like the noses and tails thin like regular surfboards. When a board has a thick nose and/or tail. That thickness gives the surfer less feedback on how the board feels. In surfing it's very important to have equipment that helps and not hinders.
