Trevor f*ing rips, I love watching him surf...and he's got that red 5'3 that we shaped down pretty good these days. He's been riding Dead Sled and Vampire hull quite a bit recently, so now its time for the hullibut:
Mr.Hullibut is a modified and refined she hull; same front end template, with a modified rocker, belly and what is most likely my favorite tail template ever...I'm beyond excited to see him ride it...insert hull, here:
Must we continue along this path? my head? Halona's ribs? now LIGHTNERS PINKY! all in two weeks!
At least we're getting into the smaller extremedies and parts of the body...watch your arm hairs, whoevers next...insert "small body-parts....ha. haaaaaa." joke that I can't think of right now, here _____________________.
After 2 weeks out of the water (thanks to a rock), I got back to it yesterday at everyones favorite Queen of the coast. It had to have been one of the most beautiful sunday's all year...great waves, friends, and mexican food on the beach; my face is sun burnt and my dog humped himself silly.
I'm busy as ever in the glass shop at the moment, a couple very very nice sleds going through the paces; photos tomorrow...
Jon's 8'+ stubby project, brownish-y tint done with Silmar 'eco' resin which I've switched to as opposed to the normal 249a that I was using previously.
I've been teaching Albers how to glass for the past few weeks as well and his squeegee handling is promising, he laminated the 6'10 pintail a few posts below...not too shabby, eh??
I've had a few questions on my glassing schedule lately, so here is my standard layup for the hulls:
6oz warp bottom w/fin patch, 6oz warp deck (nose to tail) w/8oz volan (center/knee patch), all done with the Eco resin, over Ice9 foam proves to be quite a nice weight and a killer balance in weight and flex.
