Glidezilla

Here is Mr.T with the big hunk of foam I just shaped for him.  He will be taking it to his favorite surf spots, and subsequently dropping a glide-bomb all over the faces of his fellow surfers.

It measures in at 11' x 23" x 3 1/4" and has thr33 stringers, observe: 



It is extremely foiled out, and has very little rocker for a board of it's length...this is an 11' hull for all intents and purposes; it has the same rails as my current 7' blade.


I am very proud to say that I shaped it...don't let anyone tell you that someone has to teach you everything you know...just buy a blank and try something out, you may end up somewhere pretty fun and make yourself pretty happy by the end of the day.

i've taken my glider out in well shaped overhead Rincon and that was about as much as I ever want to...the rocker is pretty flat so it's capable of getting hung up in a late drop for sure, but if you're a decent glider pilot i bet they can be taken into some size*.





*as long as its not just huge gaping tubes.
thats what minigliders are for ;)
