Made this fibreglass bellyboard for Warwick recently which ended up being an interesting project. I grew up surfing at Valla with Warwick and its good to see him still out there. We decided to make the board longer than a regular bodyboard for ease of paddling and catching waves, added wooden keels for a little more direction and control (Warwick doesn't like wearing swim fins) and kept the rocker low with with an edge around the bottom rail to keep the board fast. We also decided to cut a crescent in the tail and scoop out the deck a little so it fitted his body better.
