Epoxy Fish

I completed this board for a friend who works with the guys at Homeblown. It meant a lot that Tris (one of the UK's most infamous shapers) had a good look over the board to pass on his comments. I completed the Rapsberry red tint, as the first in my new premises, where glassing and finish is now totally completed by me, to ensure overall quality is maintained.

Red Egg for summer fun

This is a 6ft 4" x 21 1/2" summer egg. It has low entry rocker in the nose 4" and a medium tail rocker 2 3/8" so it can still turn well . The rails are similar to a short board but much fuller and soft in the front third and hard in the tail, the bottom shape is V through out with a double concave sitting in it. It has five boxes so can be a thruster, single fin, quad or twin depending on the conditions.

Finished in a translucent red tint.

Mini Simmons for Blue

6ft 4" x 21 3/8" x 2 1/2"

This board has V running from the nose back through the first quarter  were it meets the double barrel concave (this gives the board its hold and speed) the V then flows down the rails either side of the DBC to the tail. Very low rocker for speed and pick up.

The rails are hard in the back third and 60/40 towards the front helping with turning and forgiveness.

Translucent green resin tint and red semi D fins.
