Just can't stop...

After I finished the last 3 boards I decided I should take a break. So I cleaned up the garage and before I knew it the planer was out again and I was shaping the plug for the flexspoon I've been planning on making.....obviously i'm addicted.

Also I decided I want the option of running my simmons/velo board as a twin again, so got to work on making some keels....and got a little carried away

Turbercle single foil ply keels, will be fcs fit when complete. Curious to see if they make much difference.

The Bumblebee

Just finished this 8ft xps simmons for a mate. Turned out much better than I was expecting, xps is not easy to work with! Before final finishing my mate brought his 7 year old daughter round to handprint on the board and name it. She called it the Bumblebee for obvious reasons. Had its first outing yesterday in less than perfect waves and he is already raving about it. Its a good feeling to build a board for someone that they really enjoy.
