Deck Numero Tres
September 12, 2009

I made another deck today. This time I used poplar wood. It was pretty thick so I planed it down a couple of times. Not the flexiest of boards but it’s made for cruising. This is probably my cleanest board yet.

The default four stripes that rep SCO! Took out the dark blue and replaced it with a light brown.

Another Deck For Stolen Griptape
September 11, 2009

Since I stole Matt’s griptape yesterday when I was making my skateboard deck, he made me build him a deck. I’m super stoked with the outline and the graphic on the bottom.

August 13, 2009

I skinned the blank, shaped the board and glassed the bottom. Pretty stoked with the shape, not with the glass job but it’s all good.

Hull Construction Begins…
August 11, 2009

Today I finally started to work on the foam. I’m pretty happy with the outline of the board. It’s too late to plane off the crust since it’s 9pm and the electric planer is so loud. I’ll have a go tomorrow.

Hull Template
August 10, 2009

The hands on construction of any surfboard usually starts with making a template. This one is mine.  7 feet long, 23 inches wide, it’s gonna be a sick board.
