Default I said I was going to build a board, here it is.

Its almost finished and Im stoked on how it come up for my first shot at board building.
This crazy idea was born after coming home from japan with my DIY swallowtail supermodel, the swallowtail worked so well but the nose needed to be longer and a more gradual up turn.
So I went to work designing my dream board, I gave it rocker between the bindings and camber outside just like a NS or BTX board and of course the big rocker nose and swallowtail. The length is 180.
I built a press, molds and everything else I needed to build this board and finally, its almost done. It just needs a few more coats of spar varnish on the veneer top sheet and to expose the inserts.

Here are a few pics.
