Awaiting the fin & glass job
The nose has been blended, the total board sanded with 320 grit. All to happen now is shape the fin, final sand & glass job! The 316 stainless steel bung assembly has also been fitted. I'm quite happy with the overall shape considering if one was to cast their mind back to the 40's - 50's period, designs of surf craft were still in early stages. It was only between the late 50's and early 1960's when longboards took more of a identifiable shape. The only modernising that took place was to decrease the overall width by 60mm. This will assist me with wrapping my arm around the board when I carry it! (I have short arms and it will be heavy).
