My attempt at making a Fish!

Post by HoStevie » Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:36 am

This was the first (and possibly last) surfboard I've shaped.... many mistakes were made... but it surfs, and it only cost $201.08 :)

If you've never shaped/glassed a board before, watch these videos so you can avoid the same problems that I ran into.

Good video , and great to see the board worked
Personally I would never go for a black spray or resin tint on my boards
besides the heat issue it shows every imperfection

Look, OK, cards on the table. I fcuked my father up the arse. It was in the car immediately following my mother's funeral and on the way to the wake.

I didn't watch the video, but how good is Mitch's!
And wahoo's fish tacos is nearly next door, while across the street there's a place that sells hotsauce and liquor.

Maybe my favourite set of shops in the world.
