nchype 06-05-2008 2:03 PM

yeah thats dose look sick

tpj 06-05-2008 2:32 PM

thanks guys. <BR> <BR>i think im gonna try and make it concave because if i mess it up it really doesnt matter because i can make another one in ten minutes. <BR> <BR>but i was wondering what i should do about fins. i know that i want it to be loose, but i was wondering if should put one fin in the center on each side, or really small fins on each corner. what do you guys think?

wakemitch 06-05-2008 2:50 PM

no fins or center fin. do not do side fins

tpj 06-05-2008 2:58 PM

k thanks...i was pretty close to doing the side fins

very nice I like it. You should make a flat deck to go underneath it for a bi-level setup <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> just my .02

tpj 06-05-2008 3:11 PM

i might give that a try...this is just the first of many. <BR> <BR>ill probably try a bunch of different things, but the only problem is that im not the best skater in the world so hopefully ill be able to tell good from bad.

lovin_the_wake 06-05-2008 3:11 PM

You should post this on wakeskating.com

it doesn't matter if you're good or not as long as you enjoy yourself and have fun
