cStar maiden voyage

finished sanding my first board last night and took it for a spin today in some choppy sloppy waves at OB. on my first wave i was able to pump down the line and hit a little floater - stoked! really happy with the board so far, it feels intuitive dropping in and bottom turning, pumping down the line, and cutting back. it pretty much goes where I want it to without bogging or pearling, which is all i could really ask for out of my first board. i'm looking forward to testing it out on some punchier waves and longer pointbreaks so i can really get some solid turns in. already looking forward to finishing my next board, which will be more designed for small gutless summer waves.

Cbogs! Your first board looks beautiful. Nice classic shape. I hope you get a punchy south swell soon to give it a proper test. That must be so cool to surf a board you shaped and glassed yourself. What did you end up glassing it - One layer of 6oz on top, one of 4oz on bottom?
