Hey Everyone!!

I am a college student who is making a wooden surfboard for my 3-D design class and also for my own personal use.

I really REALLY need to find plans that work for a 6”2 balsa wood board.
does any one HAVE plans or know where i can find plans??

also, are any of you board shapers? or have you ever done this project before!
I could really use your help!

Thanks guys,

yeah – it does sound like fun :) wanting to build a scull was about as close as I got to a surfboard… I’m not sure I’d want to ride the waves in Lake Erie tho. Good luck Kate!
