Hi Digger, I dont mind sharing my place (within reason), I am sure we could come to some arrangement.

Saltman, I did a version of an NPJ quartet a while ago, my brother had one so I grabbed a plan shape template and made the rest up myself. photo attached. the shapers fins weren't a bad match for the template on the original, I used their largest twin fin on the front and the DVS side bites for rears.

Nice board Tally
I got some MR Twins for the front and 3.25 inch side bites for the rear
Both flat inside foils and futures

I think the shapers trailers are 80-20 foils?

Great looking board

the board above is a side cut but not as dramatic as it looks

So glad you guys are getting into it, its encouraging.

Next month my target is to set up my bay, paint with blue, make stands and a rocker stick. That will probably take a few weeks.

Ive sort of been mucking around with Aku and come up with an idea which im going to bounce off with a mate to try to get the rocker as I want. I wont get the blank cut, rather I will do it myself. I love taking my time and whittling bits away each day, a bit of foam in the air and a cold beer once done. It will be a great way to keep my self entertained till I can get back in the water.

IM chasing a twin, fins four inches from the back.

The contours are based on what I saw on a sand dune with a strong wind ripping up the sides, it had me mesmerized for four years, so im going for it. Its sort of like a bonzer bottom but its not, Single within a single hour glass to double but it will edge out further up the tail to in effect a sorta flex in the tail, cant explain it any other way. The stringer will end up being higher than the sides and im thinking it will be a rolled double so it will sorta hopefully act as a stabliser in a way. I dont really care if it works or not. Im just interested in copying what I say in nature and how the sand was blown up this sandhill and burst over the top, its a picture I cant get rid off.

Ive dreamt about it for years now.

I might make it a twinser but I think it will suit a twin, glassed on fins, after I shape it will send pics to a mate and decide on fins, ive got two thoughts on that. If the board looks alright I will have a friend glass it for me as it will be beyond my abilities, no harm in admitting that.

I also want to use the same dims and make a twinny with clinkers, just for fun.

Will paint her in the Eastwood (woodies colors in honor of my old man, might give it to a friend if I can never surf again, if it goes well that is, if its a dog but just made for good fun then it will go straight to the pool room and up on the wall.
no, Im not a surfer, Im just a garbage man".

Has anyone got any favorite vids on shaping rails, as these always freak me out, more than any other part of the board, i find the rails the most difficult.

Any discussion on rails is appreciated if you guys want to.

At the present moment I'm in discussions with AKU shaper over pricing. After explaining I don't need any software for cutting on a machine, I don't need any software for creating concaves. All I would like is to creat curves according to measurements a foot back from nose and tail plus centre measurements either forward and back. I don't really need the bay either. Foil would be nice but not essential. All I wanted to do is print a template and look at a rough foil. A rocker stick can cover the rockers I need. Time will tell

Do you get foil measurments with this. Im going to go with a three and a bit inch blank around 6'6 if I can find one. skin her flat to the rocker im looking for then start work on the concaves, aim to leave 2 3/4 after concaves cut in. Might even look at deck concaves under back foot, all depends if I can find a blank thick enough to allow me to find my rocker and then cut in the stuff through the engine room im looking for. $8 bucks aint to bad a deal if I can save the file. Get foil measurments to look at whilst working plus print off a template from Cad or something like that. Cancel the bugger after that.

They dont have a mode for free but I would like to start a discussion with them for those who dont need the machine stuff for cutting, rather just pay for templates printed off. Dont think I will get far though. $8, might look into that.
