Thanks Man, But wahts better is how it rides. This board has great flex patterns, Here on the west coast of FL the chop can be killer sometimes, But this board rides like a cadi. and has insane pop, Mostly I think because of how I tapered he rails. I also shaped them rounder in the mid section and left more of an edge past the pads.
Let me know if you need any help I have learned alot doing this, and could probly save you some trouble and money.

Do you have some pictures from the process of making your 2nd board?
how did you do design? cut on yellow paper or printed, or vinyl ??
