i finished the lamination process of my first board. the bottom lamination was not a big issue. but i screwed up with the top. it ended with many air bubbles and massive rework. anyway, i was told by someone that the bottom is much more important and the top will be covered with wax anyway :-) the board is now presanded and ready for hotcoating and final sanding. to be continued.
in the meantime i prepared the fibreglass for the second board (5'8'' x 22'' x 3''). lets hope the expierence out of the first lamination will create a better result.
