This is my surfboard I made in NZ a few years ago, its waiting there for me when I go back home on holiday.

Its 7foot 10 inch’s funboard strip planked pine over a ply wood frame.
I got a rough plan off the internet and drew a fullsize half plan on mdf to figure the dimensions of the frame, which I cut from thin plywood along with a scarfed plywood backbone.
Then planked top and bottom with many strips of pine I had ripped to size, planking the ends and sides was tricky and next time I will do it differently.
Once planked and planed and sanded smooth it got covered with a couple of layers of fiberglass for strength.
sanded the fiberglass dead smooth, the top layer was poured real thick, then applied varnish on top to get a high gloss finish.
Its a lot of fun and looks great, I cant wait to get home a take it out again.

Impressive…. I bet it was a lot of work but soon it will be worth it.
