Latest shapes

couple recent boards from different molds. Left one is from the new mold, right one from the older mold.

Hi! I'm thinking about trying to build a pow surfer myself. How sharp and long should the noe be if I'm going for a 140 cm long board to use in shallow powder? Any tips?

Hi! In the picture above, the longer board is around 140. Basically the nose or the rocker can and should start right around front leg, if not before. The flat section between feet is not really necessary, it stables the board in speed and gives better float in deep pow, but for shallow you can make the whole thing rocker. If you ride in shallow pow, the width does not affect so much, or too wide board can be just a problem. I would maybe put the widest point (say 30-35cm) in front of the front leg, or between legs if you have nose/rocker up to there and want more surf-like feel.

Would you sell one of these like the 140cm one?

Cheers

Sure I could sell one. Actually I have reshaped the 140cm mold but haven't tried it yet. Where are you located? I think it makes no sense selling one if you're on the other side of the planet.

Moro. Vieläkö on lankkuja myytäväksi asti?

Edellisen kauden lankku on edelleen olemassa, siis tuo vasemmanpuoleinen. Justiin liimasin uuden, mutta en vielä ehtiny sahaamaan. Saat halvalla ton viime kauden laudan.

Voisin kyllä ostaa. Mihin hintaan luovut? Missä päin Suomea lauta on? Itse asustelen Rovaniemellä ja liikun pääosin pohjoisessa. Postihan kuskailee jos et ole lähiseudulla.

Laitapa sähköpostia, blogger profiilista pitäisi s-posti osoite löytyä. Lauta on Jyväskylässä ja kulkee Etelä-Suomeen kun muutetaan. Postilla tai Matkahuollolta tulee pohjoiseenkin.
