    Self-Shaped Boards, Let’ See ‘em

    Self-shaped and glassed. Poly + Epoxy Resin. Both surprisingly work great! Next is a pintail twin.

    Hey Waterlogged05, Nostalgic post! Honestly, it was one of the best shortboards my brother and I surfed. Worked best in better surf (3-5ft decent power), it felt great and under control in those conditions. I surfed it at my normal volume range and we both regret selling it off. Haven't found...

    Second Self Shape

    Did the epoxy saturate well for you? With one layer of 4oz or 6oz it saturated well but with two layers (4oz+4oz) I ended up with a lot of tiny bubbles. I used a good amount of resin too, I wasn't trying to skimp out.

    Thanks Aruka! Have you been glassing your boards using poly resin? I'm not sure if it's just the epoxy I got but it's terrible to use. Might try poly next...just watching video and it looks like it saturates so much better all the way to the rails.

    That's good to hear! A Burch asymm might be my next custom order for sure. I don't think I can shape something like that. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll give the Akila's a try if I can find a set.

    Thanks guys! Yup, just learning on YouTube. I went with fuller rails not as tapered down as my fish. I used Kazuma's recommendation with the rail measurements. His videos are the best. JKB, the dims are 5'2 x 18.5 x 2.25. Surprisingly catches waves much easier compared to my fish. Even...

    My second board after shaping a 4'10 fish. Tried a twin pickle-fork but with a standard hybrid outline vs the more parallel shapes you see around. I had an old CI Pod and Pod Mod that I loved so used them as a base outline. I was also curious to shape a pickle fork and as I imagined, it sucked...
