So I finished sanding the glassing on the hollow wooden fish surfboard pictured here on the weekend. It’s a 5.9 twin fin and I got to surf it for the first time on Monday at a gnarly left reef. It was coming through about six foot and very washy, but I was stoked with how it came together. Made some critical drops and the board held its line bottom turning out of the bowl. Even managed a few turns on the choppy wave face, so the potential looks to be there. Amped for the next session. (That’s my four-year-old son holding up the woodwork by the way.)
