One of my buddies wanted me to do something inspired by the Eddie Van Halen guitar of the 80s. <BR> <BR>Haven't glassed it up yet, but thought it came out pretty fun. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/576635.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/576636.jpg" alt="Upload">

Being a child of the 80s, that totally rocks. Will it hold up a 230 lb lake giant? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

smedman 05-08-2008 8:36 PM

Hey Blair -- thanks! This shape (Wombat 4'8") would probably handle 230lbs. Handles my 200+ very nicely. <BR> <BR>I have another shape that is a bit longer for the big boys (Warthog - 5'2")... i'll try to post up the profile sometime...

That's hot for teacher!

it needs gold letters on the tail with 5150 and stainless fin boxes and black poly around the top padding that would be killer <BR>if you ever wanna get rid of it pm me <BR>i really like good stuff

smedman 05-22-2008 5:02 PM

Hey Matt -- I wish stainless fin boxes were available! That would be killer! <BR> <BR>I finally got this thing glossed up and laid some traction down. Xtrak from Wakeoutlaws. <BR> <BR>Anyway -- in light of the heated debate going on re the WWSC. Thought I would post up something to lighten things up a bit... <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/583103.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/583104.jpg" alt="Upload">

for some reason the shape translates a lot better in the pic of you holding it. looks fun

bigshow 05-22-2008 6:42 PM

Very cool. A very nice looking boat Matt. You do good work.

I really like how this board turned out <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>

bltcollins 05-22-2008 8:27 PM

At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the design, but after seeing the finished product I have to say that board looks very nice. Great job! <BR> <BR>The board and that background, my head hurts a little.

2onboone 05-24-2008 4:01 PM

hey i like it <BR>i have a friend who would machine some stainless fin boxes if he could get say a request for 20 or so of them <BR>do you think anyone would be interested <BR>i know they would be heavy but they would look kickin on that board or a carbon board

h20k9 05-24-2008 5:11 PM

hey matt,background rules..reminds me of a neighborhood i know.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>.mabe some 6 series aluminum ones would be a lil lighter,prolly cheaper to mill out too. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by h20k9 on May 24, 2008)

Why don't you just paint the boxes before installation? You could touch up where it's ground thru and apply a little resin as you are doing your final polish. <BR> <BR>Copper and chrome metallic finishes: <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/583593.jpg" alt="Upload">
