color work

6´6´´ bonzer
the Widest point is situated 3´´ down the real middle
I call these shapes, expanded shortboards
I put between 1 and 2´´ more in all the outline measurements.

semi full rails to hard on tail; dome deck; good tail rocker; flat bottom to single concave to concave bonzer channels; sea marble acid splash; double 1/8´´, 1/16´´"back to back" pinlines; the main fin (7´´) sport an acid splash too; "speed finish" coat
built to performance

+ is good when 1 day after, the customer pick up the board and there re good solid waves, and when I start to paddle to go out; see from the distance that big smile in his face...
