Rising Sun 8'6" for Jeff

Sold

This all cedar board comes in at 18 pounds. Single fin, of course. Nice nose rocker for cutting through strong off-shore chop with nice semi-flat bottom, that tapers to shallow V at the tail. Will be good board for waist to 10' surf.

8'5" Rising Sun

Dennis and son Chase just picked up there new board. I think they were pleased with the outcome. Always hard to tell by photos, especially my photos, what something looks like in the flesh or this case epoxy. Full deck Rising Sun was an interesting assignment. It came out as what I was trying to accomplish. Nice white Cedar with contrasting dark cedar and a sun made from Splatted Sycamore. Board came in at 17.5 pounds which is lighter than I was shooting for but I'll take a lighter, performance board any day.

Here are pictures from start to finish:

Wall Hanger

Well sort of a wall hanger, front is waxed and ready to go. Brain bought this off our Ebay sale to help support local lady surfer who go nailed by a shark last summer. He has been redoing his home, really gutting and starting new and is finally finished. IMHO, looks good up there.

BTW, when they were remodeling, I had a look at what was being redone. Those beams were solid Cedar. All I could think of was how that wood would look on our boards.

Single Fin: what is the big deal

Very well written and presented piece about our love affair with Single Fins.

"In his treatise on the single fin and single fin surfing, Paul Gross, surfboard designer and former editor of Surfer, outlines the role of the surfboard fin in recent history – from Tom Blake to the Thruster and back again to ”…those who want to feel the speed and texture of the wave, rather than generate an endless string of choppy, butt-wiggling maneuvers.”

Rising Sun - Finished/Sold

Started on this before Christmas and finally getting back onto it. All cedar with Australian Lacewood for the Sun. It's 9'1" maybe 9'2" x 23" x 3" Nose Rider model Chelsea. Concave nose and slight V heading to tail. Nose has little more nose rocker than traditional NR boards, mainly for the choppy water we surf and lack of point breaks. Tail rocker starts later than most NR, found it does a nice job of moving water out of riders waves on cut backs. The nose will have 70/30 foil, tapering into 50/50 pinched rail then with about 5/90 on the bottom for more lifting of nose. Nose at 12" is 18" and at tail 16". Tail block will be 9".   Sold

UPDATE: January 11, 2014  Finished Board
Chelsea model with Rising Sun
