Hooo, hooo, hooo

I was good this year and finally got a board for myself :)

Used Carbon 8x8mm squares which is difficult to work with, again Zebra leftovers, bamboo as a core, and Carbon Uni on top + FG.

It is a bigger board 138x40.5 but light 2440 grams before accessories:)

Here we go:

- blank core 10 days ago

- I cut it all around, leave some excess and route the rails

- decide about the rails color (most difficult, heh:)

- vacuum the rails to eliminate all voids between the rail and wood.
Sand the rails excess.

- drill the fins inserts, footpads holes, and glass the top.
Here a top is finished, bottom getting ready, carbon on the left.

- finally, cut the excess and sand the rails. This is a belt sander.
This is not for faint hearted ;)

Heh,

if you look closely I've forgotten to drill the fins *before* doing the bottom :)
I have no idea where the fins inserts are now:) Thank to Santa, he delivered a board drawing as well ;)

But wait!

That is not all :) I was good boy this year and got more down the chimney!

Have a look what's curing in the background near my old Kevlar helmet:

Cheers mate

The top surface is not shiny and slightly rugged having a really nice touch feeling. Might leave it as is.
Maybe a light mat varnish only.

If remember well, you used this carbon on your mutant, really difficult to work with, drinks heaps of epoxy. This is Entropy Super SAP CLR btw, very pleased with it. Highly recommended.
Post cured on 40C, hard in 3hrs.

Well a rugged top surface has some virtues. I left my peel ply finish on my mutant. It works real well to put your feet on should you need to. Heaps of grip.

Good question, this time I went for no concave. Rocker you see, it's about 3cm.
