non lazy board for log riders

I make these boards like a mix between retro and contemporary design
the first 1/3 sports rolled bottom, downrails and a wider nose, low rocker
then 60/40 s rails to sharp on the tail; concave bottom all the way
and a heavy bulk
WP forward center (depends on what the rider wants)
all these ones are single finned with box
good for steeped waves, big guys (but not lazy ones to paddling)

I run out of masking paper so I used newspaper to do this cut lap + opaque

.cut lap: you need to mask the other side of the board (the shape) to prevent color drips or bleeding to that side then do the fiberglass layer lamination and cut with a trimmer exactly in the edge of the masking tape.
.opaque: do that lam with pigment in the resin.

fin space swirl

I did a lot of this type of fins between 1992 and ´97
time ago one of those boards came back to the shop, and I shooted some pict
I did a lot of these crazy swirls but I dont have any pict except for this board

shape: round pin bonzer; flat bottom to concave to bonzer channels; flat deck; good amount of rocker; 60/40 s full rails to hard in the tail; the side runners are more foiled than the averages;

glass: 2 4oz on top + 2 deck patches for the knees (the ones with the acid splash_art+functionality_)
1 4oz in the bottom; speed finish coat; 3 colors, acid splash, 2 colors pinlines; 7" main fin made with 20 oz volan glass
*the channels look deeper due that I airbrushed a darker brown on them
