I'd like to build a surfboard and need help. My idea is to make a smaller version of my Hyperlite 5'6" broadcast. I know I could buy the shorter version of the broadcast, but I would like to get the satisfaction out of doing it myself. Here are some requirements. It must fit into a standard wakeboard rack just like my store bought broadcast. It must be cheap, cheap, cheap! I have the time, but am a little short on funds. Here are my questions:

1. Can I build this out of the insulation foam that is used for residential home building and keep it within the thickness of my store bought board?
2. Stringer--Is the stringer just routed into the top or bottom of the board or does it go all the way thru with each half of the board glued to either side of the stringer?
3. Anything wrong with me using old wakeboard fins for this board? I want something shorter and more maneuverable than my store bought board so that I can do spins and such.
4. How much do you think this board will cost to build? Can you provide a cost breakdown?
Thanks for your input
Steve
