    Teaser: 10" x 38" Cheri Bomb mold taking shape. .5" banana drop with 5 degree wedge and de-wedge, per rider's specs. The tough part will be whittling a consistent 5/8" concave throughout the drop.

    Between 15 and 40. Some people do more than that... but it seems unnecessary. As long as you get all the required shots and lots of good angles, you're good to go.

    Now I'm tempted to post one of my entries in GIF format; because now it's a challenge, and it would be taken seriously.

    What say ye, Matt? If all the required stages are clearly visible in the frames, is it a valid submission?

    Profound board builds, Darkfeather. I love the look of the marbled wood.

    Are these the first longboards you've made? You're starting to inspire me to dabble in things I don't have the money for right now!

Very stoked and the info on her is great, even watching you all hikd has been great, and helped me think a bit different!! Won't post anything in here, but I will post at some point!! Nice job to all I have seen, each has there own version of awesomeness!!! I'm always stoked just to see people share and comment on builds here, specially when someone knows the proper way for constructive critisism Love all I've seen, amazing jobs all!! Also, thanks for all the sharing of building info, really it will all probe useful for me!!

    Thanks bud...yes these are my first longboards. I have been building wooden surfboards for a few years and my son wanted to see what kind of longboards I could build.... The forums here on the fish provided tons of info.

    The marbled wood on the one board is Tamarind from Laos (light colored), Bocote from Mexico (darkest) and Bubinga from Africa (reddish)

    Just a word of caution..... if you ever decide to build with the Tamarind, make sure you use a respirator. The "marbled" effect comes from a mold (fungus) and can cause problems if the spores are inhaled.

    Gorgeous work! Thanks for a fresh set of pics to feed the "idea gerbil" in my head.


    *side-note: another name for the marbling effect is called "spalting"...

    I've heard somewhere that the dust or smoke from black walnut contains lead; is carcinogenic. It pays to research thoroughly. And yes, kids are definitely a side-effect of sex.
