Looks amazing! How does it ride?
I don't know
At the moment we have very bad and cold weather (2°C).
I hope I can test it this Saturday, if the sun is shining.
Did you vacuum bag it, or did a hand layup? Not sure from the photos.
How thick is it / how is the flex?
Does it hold any rocker? It looks realy flat!
I don't believe fins will hold long! As you also might noticed, the grain direction you chose brakes like a cookie. Voids don't help either. Fin is under a lot of stress and exposed to hit something under water. They look nice though.
I build by hand layup.
It was my first directional and I wouldn't get a risk with the vacuum.
The thickness is 4mm at the nose, 10mm in the middle and 9mm at the tail.
Rocker is approx 5cm and it has two 2mm channels.
Flex is a bit stronger than a door (like my underground stella), because i'm not really a lightweight
I fixed the fins with two steel pins on each and hope this is enough.
I would ever buy a directional, but there was only the Underground Kipuna.
But this shape is not really for light wind in the midland, so I tried my best to get a board for my weight and light wind.
