Marine plywood is not needed and is usually soft Okume, .5 in/13mm AC Ply is the cheapest high quility ply you need, Polyurathane, oil base paint, not epoxy is a better sealer for a BIG flexy board. any size 150+cm is good, the size 160X50cms is universal.
FINS ARE NOT NEEDED, AND HINDER RIDING IN 6IN OF WATER. If you need fin like feel, use a concaved sides, skatey feel striaght.
You get 2 doors out of a piece of ply, plus some wood for what your wife projects.

1) I found out that most of my local shops donÃ‚Â´t sell 12mm marine plywood (probably because I live inland). Some do sell 15mm. Is it ok or will the board be too thick/heavy?
2) IÃ‚Â´m building my board based on the Door. Can anyone post the measures?
3) How should the rails look like? Will rail design affect riding?
4) After i cut, sand and rock the board, I will apply epoxi. How many coats should I use? Why do a lot of people talk about "glassing"?
rlander wrote:5) I will also stencil the board. Should I paint over the wood and then epoxi it, or should I give it one coat of epoxi, paint and then another coat?
