making some boards


Hi everyone

A friend and I are going to be making ourselves some boards for the fall. We are looking to copy a 120-140cm mako as well as make some type of surfboard.

If any mako owners could send an estimate of the size of the concave and the rocker on your board that would be fantastic. Also is it a continuous rocker or is it just the tips? If you are feeling really nice could you send the bolt pattern in [x y] as measured from the center of the board?
Thanks!
Robbie

 hopefully we'll be ready for the next time the wind comes up. We have a nice hotwire here at work which should speed shaping along.

Check out this website for concave, rocker (along centre line), and construction details for a nice mako copy:

The specs for the actual mako are similar, apart from length.

Good luck,
Rob

Re: making some boards


So I've just finished making my board. The vacuum bag left a really nice smooth matte finish however it scratches easily. Some of the homemade boards I've seen at the PUC have a really nice smooth shinny finish. How did you guys get that??
