new blanks, new ideas

i ordered new blanks from france which arrived yesterday. 6pcs (3x 6'5'' & 3x 6'11'') will be enough raw material for my shapes in the coming months. my next project is a 6'2'' single fin shortboard with a retro outline and heavy rocker. i will keep the board a little thicker in order to make it a 'playgun' for medium sized beach- or reefbreaks.

in the meantime i am in the sanding and gloss coating process for the 'red & blue stripe'. sanding is quite a complex part of shaping a surfboard especially when you laminate with epoxy. i underestimated the workload of this step by far.
