Day 2 - Garage Built 14' Race SUP

Head High Surfing got in the way of my shaping today, so limited progress in the shaping room (a.k.a the garage). But, boy the surfing was insane. Dawn patrol netted us pure glass in thick fog and no crowds. In fact, we had the waves at the pier all to ourselves.

Template laid out

Ready for cutting

All cut and ready for final shaping tomorrow

The mini hotwire used for the rail cut

Dwight, Are you glassing the board or sub' ing it out to a glass shop. When we made a 11' Stand Up glassing and sanding took a while and the epoxy lay ups took some time to set/harden. more so than poly.. What are the dems. Looking forward to the progress and end result Great job abd good luck. Brian was down here in HHI last week and pics to share with us? Glen
