Leash Plug Installation
November 1, 2009

I got fed up with chasing my board after wipe outs so I decide to add a leash plug.

Since it’s been about a week since the fin repair sesh, I think I’ll take my good old Stub to Cornish waters this weekend.

Today I went to Mitch’s to sand my board. So close to being finished. Hopefully I’ll ride it Friday morning.

August 24, 2009

I sanded my whole board, did one more hot coat on the top and bottom and installed the fin box. My board is almost finished. Sooo stoked.

Tipping the Board
August 23, 2009

Today I sprayed the tip of my board and hot coated the deck and bottom. The hot coat didn’t do so well on top of the spray paint so I’m gonna do another hot coat tomorrow to smooth it all out.

Surfboard Construction: Glassing(2 6oz. on top)
August 22, 2009

Today I finished glassing my board minus the hot coats I have to do tomorrow. I’m getting better at glassing and not letting all the resin on the floor so kudos to me. Here are some picks from the process:

Board Status
August 18, 2009

Mitch came back from a trip to the river/lake so I went over and took off the excess fiberglass from the rails. This is what stage my board’s at.
