Bonzer builds

I've decided to bite the bullet and dip my toes into a few bonzer builds. So my thought process is to build two 6'4 bonzer type boards, one a 5 fin and one a twinzer. At this stage the first template is done. 6'4 x 13 x 20 x 14. Next will roughly be the same and designing the dims this week. Not yet...

Re: Josh Dowling Designs

My left hand side of my body is weak beerfan, it seems that my muscles cant seem to fire very much at all. They are not wasting but they are very slow to react and switch on. I have poor balance, tire so bloody easy. Im doing my pilates and my swimming and im always hopeful, but Ive also got to face...

Re: Is anyone backyard shaping any more

Ive decided to glass on some fins on mine tally. This is just an experiment board to get me back into shaping so Im also going to go for a leash loop as well. I like the idea of not plugging holes in a surfboard if not needed. Plus glass on just sort of make me smile, man Im getting old. Im going to...

Re: Is anyone backyard shaping any more

This is the blank I sorta shaped with yorky over a few beers, well, more than a few actually, five years back, when he was still on the sunshine coast. I never got to complete it, only cut out the outline and roughed in the rocker. So this blank may be possibly be the longest time anyone has ever ta...

Re: Is anyone backyard shaping any more

This is the little 5'6 ive been plugging away at. Its not been easy without the side lights and these might take a while to get, so I decided to just go for it without. To get around any scratches i might not pic up or bumps i might not see im going to paint the whole board white with an additive as...

Re: Operation

G'day digger. I know I've mentioned it more than once, but seriously, have a delve into meditation. For me, it doesn't make the pain go away; quite the opposite. I focus right into it and the amazing thing is that you train the brain to increase its threshold for tolerance. I rarely take antiinflam...

Re: Operation

If i ever needed another operation and needed pain relief, I wouldn't use modern medicine. What humans need for pain relief has been growing like a weed in the fields for centuries. yup, I was caught by surprise by all this and went through hell with modern pain killers and I believe im still menta...
