The birth of a long board
 
1 Attachment(s)
Well it's my turn in the shaping booth. I am having Jeff at soulcraft build me a long board. Like I said in a different thread the board will be a 5'6" with a twinzer fin set and a center fin so I will have different riding options. Here is the first pic to come in my blank is the third one down. Ill add more pics as they come in.I cant wait to see what Jeff comes up with for me.

Well you might have to wait till June but instead of looking at it you can take it for a spin. We are either bringing my boat or Tony's so catching a wave will not be a problem :D :D

malibu 01-13-2013 6:37 PM

I would love to take it for a spin Harold! I am looking forward to seeing you guys again!!

Squid 01-14-2013 5:49 PM

tahoesurfer 01-14-2013 10:39 PM

Squid 01-21-2013 5:33 PM

Here is a pic of the board fresh out of the CNC machine

piper907 01-30-2013 12:46 PM

that shape looks SWEET!

tonyv420 01-30-2013 1:55 PM

can't wait to ride that sucka!!

sandm01 02-03-2013 9:21 AM

just sent jeff a deposit for my own "big dumb board" :)

can't wait to see how it rides.
supposed to do 3 finboxes, one in the middle and 2 outers. will be fun to play with the difference between a single deep fin and then switch to 2 smaller outer fins..

also picked up a set of black stix for my jetty from jeff at corson's recommendation. come on spring and a HUGE shout out to jeff from soulcraft.. keep up the great work :)

h20king 02-03-2013 9:32 AM

Why not go with a twinzer set up plus the single long ?? It will give you more options and should not cost any extra. My Board went to paint so I should be getting some new pics soon.

sandm01 02-04-2013 6:41 AM

duals will be fine. don't need the 4fin setup. I'll save that for the board that I want to progress on. this board is more for fun. and it should be...

Very cool Scott. That will be a fun board behind your Tige and my Supreme wake. Can't wait till the lake thaws out.

tonyv420 02-05-2013 6:33 PM

Sue do you still have the Soulskimmer? Kristy is going to have Jeff make her a skim board before summer ( I’m hoping). She is curious about how you like it, and what length it is. Do you have any pics of it?

Tony not sure about the size but here are a couple pics of a soul skimmer

tonyv420 02-05-2013 8:41 PM

I think K is really gonna like the look of that! She can’t make up her mind on the graphics tho! Maybe the Special “K” Cereal box logo LOL!

Tony I do have a Soulskimmer. Jeff and I named the board the first time I rode it at Camp Far West. I was surfing it and he was driving his Avy and Joe was taking pictures. We all started shouting out names for the board. I shouted Soulskimmer and it stuck. It's a really fun board. It has a small center fin and twinzer fins on the outside. I usually ride it w/ all 3 fins because it is faster that way. It spins like a top. I will get pictures for you when I get home. I think Kristy will love the feel. It's more floaty than a traditional skim and lively like a Jetty.

Wax

sandm01 02-09-2013 2:28 PM

torn. have heard wax is messy. don't really want front traction, but think maybe rear pad and the rest wax?

h20king 02-09-2013 2:48 PM

now you have me thinking a rear foot stop would be nice.Ill have Jeff send traction and add it later if I don't like the wax.

tonyv420 02-09-2013 3:23 PM

Wax all the way, you’ll just have to put it in my boat so you don’t get wax on that pristine condition Falcon!

sandm01 02-09-2013 4:08 PM

I'm thinking about rear traction and playing with wax on the rest. probably do the same thing, keep it off and try it once without..

just need a lesson on how to wax. wonder if jeff will hand deliver them :)

Squid 02-09-2013 4:33 PM

Wax brother....you'll never be in one place long enough to use a rear track pad....If you want I can have Mrs. Squid make you a sox or you can pick one up at the surfboard warehouse...
