you'll probably need to strengthen the area where the centre box goes, and if you mix the wrong foams and resins you'll be very sorry.
The firewires get a fair bit of their strength from the skin too.
Make sure your professional knows what they're doing.

Josh Dowling (speedneedle on here) could advise on what to consider.
The peacock slowly shakes himself out in an act that could be mistaken as effortless were it not for the thought of his withholding a quivering.

Rode my 2+1 NPJ today in some great lined up beachies. Really stable feeling out of the bottom turns and you can push them hard without fear of sliding out. For some reason, i didn't have much success last year, but i think some time on bonzers has helped. My back fin is only 6inches - but felt good, providing i had the back foot right over it. On one wave i was too far forward and had no speed or momentum, unlike the forward trim I can get on my Russ Short.

Keen to play around with the fins and see what happens.
