I Only Build Boards One Way... The Right Way

Perhaps the finest piece of surf craft ever constructed...


It may look like somebody started to paint the board, and then tried sanding the paint off, but gave up halfway before glassing... But no, this was all planned beforehand to give the board an "artsy" look...

It also looks like some kind of primate crudely sawed a longboard fin in half with a hacksaw before haphazardly glassing it on with little to no planning...  But again no, this is in fact the handiwork of a finely skilled tradesman with nearly days of experience...

This board was built from the finest 1# EPS foam that money can buy at Home Depot.  Stringers are not needed when using space age materials like this, especially with a leash loop as structurally sound as this one...

Lastly, it may look like the ignoramus who built this heinous object neglected to sand or hotcoat the board...  But no, sanding and hotcoating are strictly for cosmetic purposes.  These lap lines were left unsanded to keep the weight down and the strength at the lowest possible levels...
