Spent this morning wrestling foam. Jack has ordered a 9'8" Noserider which I'm shaping out of a big thick polystyrene blank. I say wrestling because thats what it felt like... trying to make the styrofoam conform to the shape in my mind. A lot of the time I was knocking out bumps. Looking down the rail contours - sighting the bumps - sneaking up on them - hitting the spot - then looking down the rail contours again. By lunchtime my eyes were tired and I was noticing more and more bumps. I know it will look a lot better in the morning.
This afternoon I glassed a couple of tints. I enjoy taping the laps and mixing the colours. And I love the slick look of wet resin and watching how the different coloured resins interact when they touch.
