Your Mom

Remember when your mom used to tell you when you got frustrated with a project or homework to set it aside and come back to it with a clear head in a bit?

ya.......i do......




and it's time once again to examine something that has been a deep quest for full hull heads for more than 40 years... 
I'm not afraid to say that try #1 was a failure surf-wise, even though i don't TRULY think it was, because i learned more than i possibly could have imagined with that board's build and composite structure.

....starting 3 new versions now.
WOOHOO!



edit***this isn't a post about my first board ever (that thing was siiiiiiiiick...6'4 x 24" x 3 1/2"...f*ck yeah!), this is a series of experimental composite hulls that i've been working on for a year or so...searching for flex much like a flex spoon but with a totally different build.
well that sounds impossible when I say it like that...shit.

I hope the use of Resin X is in the cards. The stuff is amazing flex wise.

there are never failures in board building. it might not have been right for you or for some of the other folks that have tried it but, that doesnt equate to failure. what if i rode it and liked it? theres always "someone" the board will work for. maybe it didnt deliver the feeling you were looking for. one of my favorite board to date is a dish that a friend made and didnt like. it was made for standup but, i belly/kneeboard the thing and its stupendous for my use. and at the very least a bitchin piece of art. sail on- Tim
