Do you have a shed set up in ya backyard?

How long does it take to glass in Epoxy?

Where did you get ya outline templates from? You use spin templates or full size ones?

I do have a shed in my backyard but I borrow a shaping bay from the guy who does the glassing. Normally takes him a week to finish glassing in epoxy
He uses heat lamps to cure the epoxy

I use AKU for templates

How long does it take you to shape a board? I've tried a few times, but don't seem to have the patience for it.

I've watched a few guys who do it for a living and they're up around the 1.5 - 2.0 hr mark and are going flat chat at that - how they heck you doing it in 45 mins? Are you are using a preshape? So not working from a pure blank and using templates, mowing the foam by hand, etc.?

Scrubbing the ridges off the machine cut blank, tidying up the nose and tail and marking where you want the fins - I can see that would be done in 45 mins, but a whole 'handshape'?

Ah, so you are not actually "shaping". From the way your phrased your comments I thought you were shaping, with templates from AKU.

I think the industry term for what you're doing is "scrubbing". Those that do it known as "scrubbers".

More scrubbers than shapers these days lol. If it's for yourself why not? What's the big deal? Why even bring it up gcuts?

Always thought of doing 2 similar boards. One slightly wider, thicker under the chest and smoother rockered, and one slightly narrower, more foiled with a bit more rocker. The thinking being they'd surf similar, but in different waves. Post up more pics of the two mate
