paulownia strip wood core, hand shaped.
Vacuum shaped on rocker table
180g uni glass and 1 250g carbon

That looks COOL !!

Could Ya take a shot of the side profile for us ? I'd like
to see what the rocker looks like.
I know Nothing about a race-board, but am gonna guess
that the Right side is kinda flat & the Left side's got a lil kick ?

Cool. My next TT build after repairing my 135x40 is going to be a speed board. What kind of fins did you go with? Looks like a nice custom aluminum speed fin on the back. Are they mini tuttle or standard bolt on, or some kind of custom box?
