Blunt Nose Longboard Ready to be Ridden

It took me a while to complete this, but here it is.  All done - the blunt nose longboard.  This is for a friend of mine, so I haven't even taken it out yet for a ride.  But I am hoping it's going to ride great....Hope she likes it.  Here are the specs:

Length: 9'0
Width: 23"
Nose: 19 1/2"
Tail: 15 1/2"

On to the next board.........

Surfboard Resin High

I thought it was me getting high from the sweet smell of resin, but I guess I just had the shakes from skipping lunch.

Hotcoating the Longboard

For some reason, the photos I took didn't come out very clear. So, this is what I managed to salvage. Next step.... Sanding. I hate sanding!

Lamination Complete

A definite experience laminating four different colors. I felt very rushed and actually barely had enough resin mixed up for each color. I initially had each color in a plastic disposable party cup, but didn't realize, by the time I got to the last color, the cup started to melt and the bottom of the cup busted. You could imagine the mess I had on my hands.

Ready to Start Glassing

Preparing the Pigment

I spent a little time a night before preparing the colors for the Blunt Nose Longboard. The colors came out slightly different than the preliminary design that I rendered, but it should look pretty good.

Shaping the Longboard

With the template cut out, I am now ready to start shaping down the board. I am using the Bosch 3365 3-1/4" Planer that I picked up at Home Depot for about a $100. Not too bad. Seems to work alright. Although on the last board cutting through the skin made some gouges in the foam. Hopefully it won't happen again.

Here we go!!!

Here are the rail bands being cut.

Blunt Noserider - 9'0 Longboard

Finally found some time to start the blunt nose longboard. Especially with the waves being so small lately, I figured that I might as well get started. This is a US Blank 9'3 and will be cut down to a 9'0 longboard. It's actually going to be a present for a friend of mine, so I am hoping it will come out the way I want it to.

Drawing out the template.
