Hi all,
i started working on my old rossignol 166 board to make it swallowtail. this thread got me started.


here's where i'm at so far.
working on sanding, finishing the inside edge at the moment, a re-paint is in the plans. Ił,m not on a rush, i want it to be nicely done, if I only test it next season so be it.

few questions for those who already tested their board.:
1- do you guy' feel the tails are a lot softer/flexier than before?
2- would they benefit from some reinforcement? either added laminate or a stiffener bar between the tips?

thanks
