The Baron project.

Post by roy Stewart » Mon Nov 02, 2009 1:14 pm

This one's to a favourite design frst built in 2003. She's 12 feet by 27 inches wide by 2.5 inches thick, with a roundtail, an 8 inch tunnel and a bulb tipped flex fin.

http://olosurfer-woodensurfboardsatpipe ... oject.html

The Baron was designed prior to the SUP craze, and as far as I know was one of the first longboard designs to take advantage of widths in the 27 inch range. The widest longboards at the time were no wider than 25 inches and the majority were 21 or 22 inches. Some might call it cheating to make such an incredible wave catcher, but we don't mind ! The board is a prone paddling surfboard which will roast the tail feathers of any SUP, and can reach speeds of over 30mph with ease.

We'll be updating this thread daily as the construction progresses, there'll be step by step pictures and commentary.

Well BOOMA there have been Kings and Queens of Scots but never of Scotland. Scotland's Monarchs ruled the people not the land.

I've heard of that book, and am keen to read it,but of course the real head of the Royal house of Stewart is my cousin Baron Andrew Usher, who is descended from Charles Edward Stewart's first born, a boy by the name of James.

We're compiling a book on the Rise and fall of the House of Usher, the rise is fascinating, the fall less so.

Pffft, I cant believe you are proudly showing that off Roy, you lowland scum :lol: You pricks sold the rest of us out in exchange for your land and titles in 1706. Now if you spelt your name 'Stuart' that would be a different matter 8)

I appologise my understanding of Scottish history is indeed poor.
Why is the same sounding word Stewart and Stuart spelt differently?
